Alita: Battle Angel soundtrack by Junkie XL available on Spotify and Amazon

Alita: Battle Angel is now out in theaters, and fans of the film and its music can now listen to the soundtrack on Spotify or CD. Titled Alita: Battle Angel – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, it features music composed by Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL. The soundtrack is haunting, beautiful, and riveting with standout tracks like “In Time You’ll Remember” and “Motorball”.

As you may have noticed on the Alita: Battle Angel soundtrack album cover, the music producer/composer has decided to use just his real name. The Junkie XL stage name was previously attached to projects like Mad Max: Fury Road, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Deadpool.

You can purchase the CD on Amazon or listen to it on Spotify below.

Check out an interview with Junkie XL on his thought process of composing the music for Alita: Battle Angel.

The film follows Alita, a young cyborg teenager with no recollection of her past, and she is brought back to life by a cyborg physician named Dyson Ido. Alita must navigate the dangerous world of Iron City while discovering her true path as a warrior.

The film stars Rosa Salazar (Netflix’s Bird Box) as Alita, Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) as Ido, Keean Johnson as Hugo, Mahershala Ali (Netflix’s Luke Cage, Green Book) as Vector, Jennifer Connelly (Requiem for a Dream, Dark City) as Chiren, Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Game of Thrones) as Zapan, and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, Preacher) as Grewishka.

It’s directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and produced by James Cameron (Avatar, Terminator) and Jon Landau (Titanic, Avatar). The screenplay is written by Cameron and Altered Carbon creator Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and is based on the manga by Yukito Kishiro.

Alita: Battle Angel is now in theaters.

Junkie XL has contributed to a lot of sci-fi and superhero films in the past. Fans of Blade will definitely remember his track, “Dealing with the Rooster.” It was used in the kickass opening scene of the first film where Blade is fighting vampires inside a club.

Fans of Animatrix will know of his “Beauty Never Fades” track.

And of course, who can forget the Wonder Woman theme song?
