every song in Martin Scorsese's epic

Martin Scorsese‘s Killers Of The Flower Moon lands on Apple TV+ this week, and comes complete with an epic soundtrack.

The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, is based on a series of murders in the Osage tribe in 1920s Oklahoma.

A synopsis reads: “In the 1920s, members of the Osage Native American tribe of Osage County, Oklahoma, are murdered after oil is found on their land, and the FBI decides to investigate.”

In a five-star review of the film, NME wrote: “This is among Scorsese’s most important work. Popular music from the 1920s, Native American songs and Robbie Robertson’s bluesy score help round off this remarkable Western, a film that will linger in the minds of its audience for a long time.”

Alongside a score from Robbie Robertson, who died in August of this year after completing the score, the film’s soundtrack features a host of popular music from the 1920s and Native American songs.

Talking to NME about his relationship with Robertson and his score for the film, Scorsese said: “We knew each other for 50 years. And so his last work is this music in the film. And he was indigenous too. I think his mother was from the Mohawk Nation, up in First Nations in Canada. And so it was a very special project for Rob to do.” It’s clearly been special for Scorsese too, a late, great masterpiece in a career full of them. “Every aspect of this film – the Osage culture, the baby namings, the funerals, the wedding, all these things were something I wanted to recreate,” he says. “So we learn about these cultures and learn more about ourselves.”
