We’re thrilled to premiere the title track from the upcoming, acclaimed animated feature I Lost My Body. The song, “J’ai Perdu Mon Corps,” and the movie’s score were composed by Dan Levy, best known for his work as one half of the electronic pop duo The Dø.

The song opens with a moody, John Carpenter-ian synth line before introducing its melancholy melody, which grows and swells to dramatic heights over the track’s near-three minutes.

The full I Lost My Body—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally from Lakeshore Records on November 8th. This title track (and another, “Intuition”) will be given as instant gratification downloads to all who pre-order.

“Music is a powerful thing; it can be an emotional experience that surfaces new ideas about reality and truth,” says Dan Levy of his experience scoring the film. “Working on I Lost My Body was the first time I scored an animated film, and I was seduced by the magic that emanated from the intense and painstaking work that goes into creating a film like this.”

An unforgettable visual journey from director Jérémy Clapin, I Lost My Body follows a severed hand—yes, that’s right—as it escapes a Parisian laboratory and treks across the city in search of the rest of its body. All the way, we’re granted glimpses into the hand’s past life when it was attached to a pizza delivery boy, and his love for a local librarian. It’s odd, yes, but a compelling story based on a novel by the writer of the quirky, French classic Amelie.

I Lost My Body will premiere in theaters on November 15th before making its Netflix debut on the 29th. You can watch the trailer below:
