The National’s Bryce Dessner has shared information regarding the new soundtrack for an upcoming comedy starring Peter Dinklage, dubbed She Came to Me, due on September 29 via Warner Classics and UNIGRAM. The accompanying album features an original song, “Addicted to Romance,” written by Bruce Springsteen and featuring his wife, Patti Scialfa.
Via an official press release, the director of She Came to Me, Rebecca Miller, remarked that the aforementioned soundtrack derived from an “intimate process” collaborating with Dressner, who joined in on the project during its early stages, a necessary move considering the LP features a pair of onscreen operas, which are featured in the movie, and conducted by Andre de Ridder, featuring pianist Katia Labeque and vocal contributions from Greer Grimsley, Alicia Hall Moran, Isabel Leonard and Emmett O’Hanlon.
Dessner described the film as “one of the most rewarding and creative experiences I have had.” He also stated that the project enabled him to “make the music that I wanted to make, and so it’s the first film where the music really resembles my music for the concert hall.” Director Miller added, “The collaborative nature of the film is what’s so exciting. I can write a book by myself, but with this film, I was able to work with Bryce’s brilliance. There was a challenge channel between us, and we shared in each other’s creativity.”
Springsteen scribed the “Addicted to Romance” track alongside Ron Aniello and Dessner. The latter deemed the partnership a “lifelong dream.” While the tune has yet to be released, the group of talent has delivered the first single, “Julian and Tereza.” Listen below.
