With Watchmen confirmed to open March 6, the full swing of its publicity assault is upon us. Cue the announcement of the movie’s soundtracks, with one version to feature the score by Tyler Bates (Rob Zombie’s Halloween and The Devil’s Rejects) and a separate disc to include a “reinterpretation” of Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row” performed by My Chemical Romance.

Set to join the band on that version of the soundtrack are Nat King Cole, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen and many more. Both albums will be released March 3, followed by a vinyl edition available March 17 and select tracks on a fan-ready 7” box set available March 24.
