It's Here: Stream All 17 Tracks of the M83 'Oblivion' Soundtrack Now
"Breathe in the light and say goodbye." Well, this is the moment some of you have been waiting for. Back Lot Records has released a streaming version of M83's new soundtrack for Oblivion, including all 17 tracks (on the regular release) available to listen to in full right now. We originally featured the first "StarWaves" track, and felt it was worthwhile to mention this full release. Though I don't know how to feel about these early streaming releases, because at this point I'd rather wait to hear the rest of the score in the movie first, then listen to the rest of the soundtrack. But that's just me. If you're anxious to start listening to these songs right away without the visuals, this is your opportunity. From what I've listened to, everything sounds amazing.
Found below is the player (via Mashable) to listen to full streaming version of the Oblivion soundtrack, which includes 17 tracks and the title song "Oblivion", feat. Susanne Sundfør. Here's the embedded album:
As you can see on the album cover, the Oblivion score is credited to both Anthony Gonzalez and Joseph Trapanese, playing as M83. While it is available for streaming now, the M83 soundtrack for Oblivion in full will be released on April 9th from Back Lot Records. They also have a Deluxe Edition with 30 tracks.
Kosinski's Oblivion (also known as Horizons) stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, plus Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Zoe Bell, Andrea Riseborough, Melissa Leo and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Living and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack's soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands. Kosinski has developed this for years, with a writing credit along with William Monahan. Universal Pictures currently has Oblivion scheduled to open exclusively in IMAX theaters on April 19th. See the trailer here.

Thanks, but got the CD preordered already! Not sure if I want to hear it before or after I see the film... I think after.

Joseph Kosinski if not a fantastic film maker has great choice in the soundtrack of his films, although a lot of people didn't think Tron Legacy was amazing, I loved it for the atmosphere of the film and the score behind it just made it that more amazing. From listening to Oblivion's score I'm already so excited for the film and to experience the world he created.

Really like it. Better than a lot of recent soundtracks.

So it's 30 tracks in iTunes, I don't think this counts as "all". Still nice to preview, though.

Track 2 - 'Waking Up' sounds a LOT like 'Rise' from TDKR soundtrack.

I believe Hans Zimmer was a collaborator or atleast he worked with daft punk on the tron legacy soundtrack, so maybe he contributed with m83 as well

Certainly a similarity in whats trending for film soundtracks in the past five years. I enjoy working to music like this.
