I’m a big ol’ geek for Quentin Tarantino. As a teen, I remember scrawling descriptions of each scene in Pulp Fiction down in my black marble notebook so I could then reassemble those scenes in chronological order. Yeah, like I said, total geek, which is why the release of Tarantino’s new film, Django Unchained, on December 25th is the best Christmas present I could ask for (besides a pony, but that’s an adolescent obsession we’ll save for another blog post).

The soundtrack to Django Unchained will hit shelves a week prior to the film’s release, but you can listen to one of the tracks right now: Rick Ross’ “100 Black Coffins.” This is the first time Tarantino has commissioned original songs for one of his movies, and the track is also featured in the newly released trailer for the film. Check out both the trailer and the track below, and let me know who else on the track list you’re excited to see collaborating with Tarantino on the music for the film.
