Listen: Damon Albarn - "Sister Rust"

The Blur songwriter's cinematic contribution to Scarlett Johansson's new movie Lucy.
Damon Albarn

Some songs just sound like they belong in films - something about strings makes anything instantly cinematic. Damon Albarn's "Sister Rust," which he wrote for Scarlett Johanssen's new movie Lucy, is one such song, with classical-feeling movements and tone shifts relayed by soaring strings, plenty of xylophone, and Albarn's own singular, emotive vocals. It's a great listen, even if you weren't a fan of the film. Check it out below.
