Hear a 'Silver Linings Playbook' exclusive track, 'Buffalo,' from Mercury Prize-winning rockers Alt-J -- EXCLUSIVE


Things are looking good for Silver Linings Playbook – the David O. Russell-directed Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence drama already garnering serious critical raves in advance of its Nov. 21 release – and for Alt-J, the British indie rock outfit that recently took home England’s esteemed Mercury Prize for their debut, An Awesome Wave.

Winners like to come together, apparently: Alt-J has penned a song for Silver Linings, “Buffalo,” for the the official soundtrack, which also contains previously released tracks from Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Alabama Shakes, as well as a new score by Danny Elfman.

You can buy the song when the soundtrack is released Nov. 19, or stream it right here a full week early:
