Soundtrack details online
We know you’re excited about Avengers Assemble, which arrives in our cinemas on April 26. But what about the music for the movie? Well, if you enjoy what you hear while munching your popcorn, you’ll be able to buy the soundtrack on May 1. And in a move that will warm the heart of all Chris Cornell fans of a certain age, Soundgarden has decided to grace the pic with its first tune in 15 years.
"We've been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this autumn,” says the band (we’re assuming they didn’t say it all at once like school kids greeting their teacher). “When the opportunity to write an original song for the Avengers film came our way, we thought it could be a cool match. We are excited to release our new song Live To Rise, which is also the only new song in the film.”
A snippet of the track is online, which you can wrap your lugholes around below.

All right, so we made that bit up.
