Brief Synopsis:
On 30th October 2014 BBC3 screened a new version of Nicholas Winding Refn's 2011 film 'Drive' with an all-new score of original music. It was curated by Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe with the full co-operation of the Director. So it's one of those rare "Official Fanedits".

Zane Lowe has insisted that it's not meant to be an improvement on the original, only an alternate take while Refn has stated "You can't own creativity. Rather than say 'Drive' is mine, I'd prefer to say it's everyone else's". Good idea or not, it's a brave experiment, so Lowe and his pick of artists deserve points for having the bottle to even attempt this in the first place.

Intention:
To preserve this alternate 'Drive' soundtrack, as it was only available to stream for one-week-only and then only for UK viewers. I've aslo taken the opportunity to match the audio to a better image from the official Blu-Ray.

Special Thanks:
Thanks to Zane Lowe and all the artists involved for working on this cool project but most of all, thanks to Nicholas Winding Refn for allowing them to do it!

Also thanks to 'Signal Noise' (aka designer James White) for creating the sweet poster that I've based the cover on.
