Little White Lies

Continuing his ‘Refn Presents’ series with the good folk over at Milan Records, Drive and Only God Forgives writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn is releasing a soundtrack of songs that inspired his most recent feature, The Neon Demon. Think of it like a companion piece to the film’s actual OST.

The deliciously titled compilation LP, ‘The Wicked Die Young’, features original tracks from longtime Refn collaborator Cliff Martinez as well as classic themes from the likes of Dionne Warwick and Claudio Gizzi. The album is released on 14 April and you can pre-order your copy here. Check out the full track list and cover art below and then revisit our sensational interview with Refn from last year.
