Young Fathers 'Only God Knows ft. Leith Congregational Choir' Out Now

“You're always looking for the heartbeat of a film. For Trainspotting it was Underworld's Born Slippy. For T2 It's Young Fathers. Their songs are my heartbeat for the film.” - Danny Boyle.

The most soaring, crazy piece of punk-gospel you’ll hear in 2017, 'Only God Knows' by Young Fathers is out now on Big Dada - Ninjashop / Stream / Download

Here’s the story behind Young Fathers and their involvement in Danny Boyle’s T2: Trainspotting,

Young Fathers and the prolific novelist Irvine Welsh first met in 2015, when Welsh was making TV documentary about creativity in their mutual hometown, Edinburgh. Director Danny Boyle discovered Young Fathers shortly after their 2014 Mercury Prize win.

T2: Trainspotting, is Welsh and Boyle’s recent feature-length film and sequel to Trainspotting(1996) – both adaptations of Welsh’s critically acclaimed written works, Trainspotting and Porno. 21 years later, their mutual appreciation for Young Fathers landed six tracks on the film’s score - Low, No Way, Dare Me - and soundtrack - 'Get Up', 'Rain or Shine' and 'Only God Knows'.

Young Fathers got word on T2 features while working in the studio with Los Angeles-based producer Dave Sitek. The guys brought one of the demos back home to Edinburgh, met up with Boyle to tour the T2 film set and then finished the song with the voices of the Leith Congregational Choir, because there’s “nothing like singing with your aunties.”
