Grohl's Sound City--Real to Reel Soundtrack Album

SOUND MATTERS: Real to Reel, the companion album to the Dave Grohl-directed Sound City documentary about the legendary San Fernando Valley studio, will come out March 12, 2013, on Roswell Records, while the film will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The soundtrack and the movie are now available for pre-order at iTunes, with all buyers receiving a free first single, "Cut Me Some Slack"—the original studio recording of the track performed by Paul McCartney, Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear at the historic 12-12-12 benefit as well as on this past weekend's Saturday Night Live holiday episode. Sound City was conceived by Grohl after purchasing the studio’s custom-built Neve 8028 recording console last year. Real to Reel is a brand-new collection of all-new, all-original songs, each one composed and recorded exclusively for the film within its own 24-hour session on that console after it was reinstalled in Grohl and his Foo Fighters' own 606 Studios. The new tracks feature Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Trent Reznor, Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Lee Ving of Fear, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine and more. The movie will be released theatrically on Feb. 1 through Variance Films, and will be available as an HD digital download and stream Feb. 1 via www.soundcitymovie.com. Grohl's personal connection to Sound City began with the 1991 recording of Nirvana's breakthrough album, Nevermind. (12/17p)
