The National's Bryce Dessner has also chipped in with some music for Alejandro González Iñárritu's next movie.
Sakamoto, whose role was revealed some time ago, this week said that Alva Noto, real name Carsten Nicolai, and The National's Bryce Dessner have also contributed to the score of the film, a thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Domhnall Gleeson and Tom Hardy. Iñárritu won an Oscar this year for Birdman, and he's also known for his work on films like Babel and 21 Grams. The Revenant is set to hit cinemas on Christmas Day. Watch a trailer below.
Sakamoto is back working after being diagnosed with throat cancer in 2014. Nicolai released his latest album, Xerrox Vol. 3, back in March of this year.
