James Murphy's Soundtrack to Ben Stiller's Midlife Crisis Now Has a Playlist



Previously, we alerted you to the awe-inspiring, genre-mashing partnership of one Mr. James Murphy and one Noah Baumbach, in which Murphy was to write several solo tracks for the director's forthcoming film, Greenberg, starring a surprisingly subdued Ben Stiller. Now, we are pleased to share the tracklisting for the movie's soundtrack, which includes 11 solo tracks from the LCD Soundsystem frontman, along with tunes from some other snazzy musicians.
