‘Funeral Pyre’ is the new single from Mogwai’s latest release, KIN: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which is out now via their Rock Action label. The ambient and emotive instrumental track follows previous singles ‘Donuts’ and ‘We’re Not Done Yet (End Title)’.
KIN continued the Scottish band’s string of acclaimed scores, which includes Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006), Les Revenants (2012), Atomic, Living in Dread and Promise (2015), and Before the Flood (2016); the latter co-written with Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Gustavo Santaolalla.
A crime thriller with a sci-fi twist, KIN is the story of an unexpected hero destined for greatness. Chased by a vengeful criminal (James Franco) and a gang of otherworldly soldiers, a recently released ex-con (Jack Reynor) and his adopted teenage brother (Myles Truitt) are forced to go on the run with a weapon of mysterious origin as their only protection.
KIN will be released in cinemas from 9th November in the UK, via Showcase Cinemas, and available to purchase digitally on 12th November.
The band are gearing up for a tour of the UK, which includes a date at Brighton Dome, 25th November.
