In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) is a 2017 German drama film written and directed by Fatih Akin. It stars Diane Kruger as Katja Sekerci, a German woman. Katja's life collapses after the deaths of her husband and son in a bomb attack. After a time of mourning and injustice, Katja seeks revenge. In the Fade was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where Kruger won the Best Actress award. The film also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
While the original title translates to "Out of Nowhere" in English, the English title is taken from the song of the same name by American rock band Queens of the Stone Age, whose lead singer, Joshua Homme, wrote the film's score. Director Fatih Akin is a fan of Queens Of The Stone Age and approached Homme to tell him that he had been listening to the band as he wrote the script. Homme, who at the time was mixing the band's last album "Villains," was surprised by the proposal but agreed and wound up delighted with the chance to release more experimental music. Joshua realized that Akin was giving him full control, even telling him, "'I am not worried about the music. I know it is going to be great.'" "I was very relieved," Homme told AFP. "I felt that it was a movie made passionately and under the control of Fatih."
The soundtrack of In the Fade also includes songs by Faith No More, Courtney Barnett, Queens Of The Stone Age, Lykke Li & Hindi Zahra.
In The Fade is available on vinyl for the first time as a limited edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on crystal clear vinyl and includes a 4-page booklet.
