Pink Floyd’s ‘Brain Damage’ soundtracks Westworld III trailer

From Planet Rock.

Pink Floyd’s 1973 track ‘Brain Damage’ has been used to soundtrack the trailer to the third season of science fiction TV series Westworld – the aptly titled Westworld III.

Hours after the final episode of Game of Thrones aired, HBO premiered the trailer for one of their other hit shows – Westworld III – which will be aired on Sky Atlantic (in the UK) in 2020.

Clocking in at just over a minute, the teaser clip sees a character played by Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul try to search for authenticity in a futuristic, robot-inhabited world.

Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ classic ‘Brain Damage’ marries up with the trailer perfectly thanks to lyrics like “And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too / I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.”

Sharing the trailer on their social media accounts, Pink Floyd wrote: “Wish you were here? For many years, the fictional Westworld has fascinated viewers, from the original film with Yul Brynner, to the recent television series. The third series (coming 2020) has just been revealed with a familiar song on the trailer…”

The first two seasons of Westworld featured player piano reworkings of a number of songs including The Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint It Black’, Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’, Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Something I Can Never Have’ and Radiohead’s ‘No Surprises’.

The original music for the series is composed by Ramin Djawadi.
