He revealed the cover art and shared a snippet of the track in a trailer that aired during NBA on TNT. “This is my first original song for a film,” Travis says in the clip, which also features Tenet star John David Washington. “Which is actually fire ’cause I kinda wouldn’t want it any other way.”
During his GQcover interview, Travis previewed “The Plan,” which the magazine describes as a “brain-liquefying trip through time and space.”
“His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle,” Nolan said. “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.”
Göransson told Deadline about working with Travis, “The way that he connects with art is not in a singular form. He has so many tentacles, and they’re all electric. So when we talk about feeling, [whether that’s] listening to a song or talking about a movie, he can visualize things in so many different fields. So it’s a very special ability. It’s like his own magic power.”
Tenet opens in Canada on Aug. 27 and in the U.S. on Sept. 3.
Travis is also working on the follow-up to Astroworld, which may be called Utopia, as well as a joint album with Kid Cudi.
