Julia Holter scores boxing drama Bleed For This, shares "Fighting Duran"

I’m just as skeptical as you are that the world needs another boxing drama, but what if I told you that there’s an upcoming boxing drama scored by Julia Holter? Would that make a difference? Probably not, but at least it means we get new music from Julia Holter!

“Fighting Duran,” the first single released from the Bleed For This OST — out November 18 on Milan Records — is less adventurous stuff than pretty much anything Holter has put out before, even as it retains the melancholic beauty of her wider catalogue. Perhaps the most interesting thing about “Fighting Duran,” though, is its context on the soundtrack, appearing alongside nine more original compositions and Loud City Song standout “Maxim’s I,” but also alongside songs by Bad Company, George Michael, and Billy Squier.

Internet, tell me, has anyone ever put Julia Holter and Bad Company in the same sentence before today? Doubt it. Reality is boundless! The universe is nothing if not infinite possibility!
