Psycho: Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture is the soundtrack album to the 1998 remake of Psycho. It includes three adaptations of Bernard Herrmann's score to the original by Danny Elfman (Elfman's adaptation was later released on a separate album. Ironically, the only released recordings of the original score are new performances by other orchestras, although the 1975 recording was conducted by the composer, Bernard Herrmann.) The rest of the album is made up of songs by rock, metal, country, trip hop, and drum and bass artists.
Many of the songs were recorded for the album. Five songs sample the actual film: "Once Is Not Enough" repeats a number of Norman Bates and Marion Crane's lines from the 1998 version, and "Honeymoon Suite", "Madhouse", "All of My Life", and "In the End" all sample Bernard Herrmann's score to the original film.
Only two of the songs were already released by their respective artists at the time of the album's release: "Living Dead Girl" on the album Hellbilly Deluxe, and "Psycho Future" on the album Freak*on*ica (both also Geffen releases).
"Screaming" was later released by Pet Shop Boys as a B-side to their 1999 single "I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore", and "Fly" was later included on Lamb's 1999 album Fear of Fours.
"Madhouse" was the last song ever recorded by Mono before the band broke up.
