Latest news from Hanna

Los Angeles Times' Steven Zeitchik in the movie blog "24 Frames" checked in with The Chemical Brothers, the sonic pair behind the exhilarating soundtrack for Hanna. The two were in Southern California to perform at Coachella, that mega concert in the desert. The duo, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, who make up the Chemical Brothers talked about the difference between creating an album and creating a soundtrack. "With us, we usually make the record and then kind of figure out what we have afterward," Rowlands told Zeitchik. But a soundtrack pushed them to approach the creative process differently. As Rowlands, explained:
It was actually liberating. Normally we have 15 versions of a song and we're not sure which one to use. Here we might have had two or three versions, and Joe would come in and collaborate, set some parameters.
