'Gone Girl' is complimented sublimely by the soundtrack from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross had previously treated fans to a portion of the score from David Fincher's new movie, Gone Girl and have now shared three new tracks, via NPR Music. The duo have also announced the tracklisting for the soundtrack, which is out digitally on September 30.

We know that Fincher gave very specific instructions to the pair about how he wanted the movie to sound.
"He said, 'think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors,'" Reznor told The Wall Street Journal during an interview earlier this month, "The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything's OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel."
"I said a spa, not a massage parlor!" Fincher interrupted, "I was listening to that calming, placating music and thought, we need to tap into this. The movie is about the facade of the good neighbor, the good Christian, the good wife. So the notion was to start with music that's attempting to give you a hug."
The movie, released on October 3, has garnered hugely positive reviews with much praise heaped on Reznor and Ross's creaking, eerie soundtrack.
""Gone Girl" will earn plenty of loud shouts of applause, awed sounds of surprise, and shocked laughter, but what makes it worthy of them is all the hushed, uneasy conversations it's guaranteed to inspire in the long, unsettled silence to come after," said James Rocchi of The Wrap.
