Chris Farren drops surprise album Death Don’t Wait (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Indie-pop darling and Music Existence fave, Chris Farren, surprised the world today with Death Don’t Wait (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), the latest in his ever-growing discography of elaborately creative releases. It’s the soundtrack for a movie that doesn’t exist, and it’s all thanks to Marvin Gaye.

Chris was listening to Gaye’s Trouble Man soundtrack and the twelfth studio album from the legendary artist. “I thought, I can’t wait for the time in my career when I’m able to do something like that,” Farren explains. But then he realized––he didn’t have to wait, he could just do it.

In just under three months, Chris scored the entire made-up movie––12 mostly instrumental tracks that suit the specific moods of helicopter shoot-outs and villain headquarter explosions, yet somehow still maintaining his own style of indie rock. With contributions from Jeff Rosenstock, Macseal’s Frankie Impastato, and AJJ’s Mark Glick, Death Don’t Wait pulls inspiration from films like Dirty Harry, Kill Bill, Chinatown, Mulholland Drive, James Bond, as well as 60s/70s French and Italian pop, bossa nova, and surf rock.

Of course, for every great Bond film, there’s a larger-than-life ballad as its title track, and there’s one on here, too. In fact, “Death Don’t Wait (Main Title)” is the album’s only non-instrumental song, and features an outstanding vocal performance from the greatest of all time, Laura Stevenson. Like Nancy Sinatra or Shirley Bassey before her, Laura’s sultry title track sets a brilliant tone for the film––albeit a fictional one.
