In a brand new TENET featurette, collaborative partners Travis Scott, Ludwig Göransson, and Christopher Nolan spoke about Scott’s involvement in “The Plan,” a song they did for the movie.
Göransson explained that “The Plan” was born from his desire for a much stronger end credits theme. “I started seeing the movie on the big screen, you know, 10, 15 times, and I felt like the end credits with my music — it kind of felt a little anti-climatic to me,” the composer said. “A voice that came to mind was Travis Scott because I love what he does with his voice, especially the way he treats his voice and makes it sound almost like an instrument.”
“I wrote a song kind of just based on these last images in my brain,” said Travis. Nolan and the crew invited the rapper to a private theater showing of the film just to see if he has any input. He continues, “As soon as I was finished, I just sent it back,” and Göransson called his response “incredible.”
“Travis had a tremendous understanding of how the music works film and what Ludwig was trying to do in terms of enhancing the themes and the storytelling of the film with the musical motifs,” Nolan said.
