Radioactive by Joseph Trapanese for Prisoners of Ghostland

From the official press release, Joseph Trapanese had this to say of the soundtrack:

My score for Prisoners of the Ghostland is a love letter to my favorite films and music. You'll hear clear influences from Spaghetti Westerns and classic sci-fi, as well as from traditional Japanese music, Baroque Sarabande, and French Impressionism. For me, the collision of these musical styles with Nicolas' expressive performance and Sion Sono's beautiful images is the most gratifying result of the film. What I love most about Sono-san's work is that regardless of how dark, violent, or unconventional it may be, there is a clear, effusive, and vibrant joy for filmmaking. One cannot watch a Sion Sono film without being infected by his inventiveness, and I'm honored to have experienced his artistry firsthand. I'm thrilled to be sharing this music with you.

The tracklisting for the "Prisoners of Ghostland" album includes the songs "Ghostland," "Governor," "Bicycle Ride," "Arrival," "Bernice," "The Robbery," "Radioactive," "You Command all Time," "Alas Poor Yorick," "Psycho," "Animal Farm," "We Are Free," and "Gunslinger Likes Company."
