Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Has Produced A New Song For Controversial Film, ‘Climax’

“Sangria" will be presumably released alongside the film in September.

Thomas Bangalter, half of the legendary electronic duo Daft Punk, has contributed a new track to Climax, the latest film from Argentine director Gaspar Noé.

The song, titled “Sangria,” appears on the soundtrack alongside his previously released music “What to Do” as well as Daft Punk’s “Rollin” and “Scratchin“. Also included in the film are Aphex Twin’s “Windowlicker,” The Rolling Stones’ “Angie,” Giorgio Moroder’s “Utopia – Me Giorgio,” and more.

Check out the full list below.

The controversial film, which was recently screened at Cannes Film Festival, focuses on a dance party that devolves into chaos. “Claiming to be based on true events, the film follows a group of dancers on an intensive residential course at a school on the outskirts of Paris, whose post-rehearsal punchbowl is spiked with some unknown hallucinatory substance, bringing on a speedy mass descent into Noéan psychosis. Graphic self-mutilation and orgiastic sex ensue, all captured in the director’s trademark undulating camera moves, punctuated by title cards which offer mottos such as “death is a unique opportunity”, and set to a throbbing backing track of vintage techno, house and electronic music,” according to The Telegraph.

This is the third time Bangalter and Noé joined forces for the big screen. The French artist previously worked with the Argentine director on his 2002 film Irreversible and Enter the Void in 2009.

“Sangria” will be presumably released along with the film on September 19th.
