|Song One stars Anne Hathaway and Johnny Flynn and features the music of Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice. The film opens in theaters and will be available on demand on Friday. The soundtrack is out now.|
Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice had at least three objectives in mind when they agreed to write original tunes for the film Song One:
1. Write songs to be performed onscreen by "James Forester," a reclusive singer-songwriter with a cult-classic album to his credit, as well as by "Henry," a fan and fledgling musician.
2. Take producer Jonathan Demme's challenge to record the songs the way Skip Spence made Oar, a lost classic from the psychedelic genius's solo catalog.
3. Make sure at least one of said songs makes the film's star, Anne Hathaway, cry on camera.More »
