The nine-minute cut features on the producer's soundtrack for new film 'Midsommar'

This Friday sees the release of the soundtrack for new horror film Midsommar, produced by Bobby Krlic, AKA The Haxan Cloak.

Krlic has now shared a full track from the soundtrack, titled 'Fire Temple', which clocks in at almost 10 minutes. You can hear it above.

The score marks Krlic's first material since when he contributed to the soundtrack for Almost Holy. Midsommar's script was written entirely to Krlic's music by director and writer Ari Aster. He later went on to ask Krlic to produce the film's soundtrack as a result.

"Trying to live up to the expectations of a director who wrote the script to my music was an intimidating task," says Krlic. "In the end I believe it's been the most rewarding and deeply educational experience I've ever had. Not only was working with Ari Aster an honour, but the work was a true collaboration."

Krlic's last record as The Haxan Cloak, Excavation, came out in 2013 via Tri Angle. Milan Records will release his score for Midsommar on July 5 and the film is out now.
