The soundtrack is an audio manifestation of the exploits seen in the action-comedy directed by genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and starring Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad).
Nigel Godrich, the celebrated producer who has /b>worked on albums by Radiohead, Beck, Paul McCartney, Travis and many others, composed Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’s original score. Additionally, Godrich serves as executive producer on the soundtrack.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) includes a number of original songs composed by alternative/modern rock kingpin Beck. They are performed in the film by Sex Bob-Omb, the group featuring Scott Pilgrim (Cera) on bass, Stephen Stills (Mark Webber) on lead vocals and guitar and Kim Pine (Alison Pill) on drums. Cast members perform the band’s vocals, with multi-platinum and Grammy® Award winner Beck providing instrumentation - a unique collaboration unprecedented in the annals of soundtrack albums. Beck’s Sex Bob-Omb songs, including the grunge-infused “Garbage Truck” and the alternative-themed “Summertime,” are woven seamlessly into the film. Both the film and album feature four Beck/Sex Bob-Omb tracks, as well as “Ramona,” a Beck (only) song featured here in both acoustic and lush orchestral arrangements.
