The Oscar-winning for their soundtrack of “The Social Network” movie, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, had just released a new original score.

Here is the first and by far the most popular track – Immigrant Song, which is recorded with a collaboration between Trent Reznor and Karen O. The song is a cover of Led Zeppelin’s single of the same name (1970).
