Take a look at the creation of the soundtrack to the Anne Hathway-fronted film Song One, set in the bourgeoning Brooklyn music scene, with music by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice.
 

Kate Barker-Froyland’s 2014 film Song One tells the story of a young woman called Franny Ellis (Anne Hathaway), whose life is thrown into emotional tumult when her brother falls into a coma after a car accident. Set in the ever-thriving Brooklyn music scene, the film is as much about the music of the city as it is the people who live within it; unsurprisingly, then, reputable musicians Jenny Lewis (The Postal Service) and Johnathan Rice were called upon to write songs for this musical tale. Below, you can view an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Song One Original Soundtrack (OST), focusing on the song “Big Black Cadillac”.
  
Here’s the sneak peek into the Song One soundtrack:



Song One OST is out now on Lakeshore Records.
