Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Stuck in Love – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on May 21st and on CD and vinyl June 11, 2013. The film features an original score by Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott (from Bright Eyes), and new songs “At Your Door” (by Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott featuring Big Harp), “You Are Your Mother’s Child” (by Conor Oberst) and “Somersaults In Spring” (by Friends of Gemini: Corina Figueroa Escamilla, Nathaniel Walcott and Mike Mogis).
“My pipe dream was to have Bright Eyes, my favorite band score the film,” said the film’s writer/director Josh Boone. Music supervisors Andy Ross and Laura Katz reached out to them. “Not only did they make that happen, bringing the great Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott on board, but Conor Oberst generously contributed an original song that fit so perfectly into the fabric of the film that I still get goosebumps every time I hear it.”
Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott’s musical involvement together dates back to the mid-90s, when Mogis invited (the then-high school junior) Walcott over to his studio (then housed in his parents’ basement in Lincoln, Nebraska) to record trumpet on an early Lullaby For The Working Class album. Nathaniel Walcott is a composer, arranger, keyboard player, and trumpet player. In addition to being a member of Bright Eyes and Conor Oberst’s Mystic Valley Band, he has worked closely with many artists, both live and in the studio, such as The Faint, M. Ward, Rilo Kiley, Pete Yorn, and Broken Bells. Read the rest of this entry…
