Ty Segall Announces ‘Whirlybird’ Soundtrack, Shares New Single ‘Story of the Century’

    Drag City has announced the release of Whirlybird (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), an album of new music by Ty Segall created for Matt Yoka’s documentary. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival two years ago, tells the story of Zoey Tur and Marika Gerrard, the founders of the Los Angeles News Service, who pioneered the use of a helicopter to report on Los Angeles throughout the ’80s and ’90s. Listen to a new track from the score, the six-minute instrumental ‘Story of the Century’, below.

    Whirlybird is currently available to stream on MUBI. The soundtrack, which marks Ty Segall’s first feature film score, will be out digitally on February 22. His last LP was last year’s Harmonizer.
