TRON: Legacy is the soundtrack album for the 2010 film TRON: Legacy composed by French duo Daft Punk. The album was released on December 7, 2010. It is the first film score released by Daft Punk.


TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski and music supervisor Jason Bentley approached Daft Punk and requested that the duo compose the film score.[1][2] When asked why he wished to work with the duo, Kosinski replied, "How could you not at least go to those guys?"[2] The score features an 85-piece orchestra, recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London.[3] Kosinski referred to the score as being a mixture of orchestral and electronic elements.[2] Daft Punk's score was arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese.[4] Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk had previously produced the Irréversible soundtrack and served as sound effects director for the film Enter the Void.

Commenting on the TRON: Legacy score, Bangalter noted that "We knew from the start that there was no way we were going to do this film score with two synthesizers and a drum machine.” Daft Punk cited Max Steiner, Bernard Herrmann, John Carpenter, Vangelis and Maurice Jarre as inspiration for the soundtrack. Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo also stated that the original TRON film was a strong influence on him as a child. "Maybe I only saw it two or three times in my entire life, but the feel of it is strong even now, that I think the imprint of the first [film] will not be erased by the new one. It has a real visionary quality to it.[5]

The first theatrical trailer for TRON: Legacy featured the track "The Game Has Changed". A "special presentation" trailer featuring Daft Punk and their track "Derezzed" was released online on October 26, 2010.[6] A deluxe edition of the album will be released that includes a poster of the duo from the film.[7] As a pre-order bonus for the album on the iTunes Store, "Derezzed" was released as a promotional single on November 9, 2010. The iTunes release of the album includes two bonus tracks: "Father and Son" and "Outlands, Pt. II".[8]
