On April 5, Interscope Records will release ‘Teen Spirit’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. In the film – which screened at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, and opens in April – Elle Fanning plays Violet, a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town, and pursuing her passion to sing.
With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Making his directorial debut, Max Minghella creates a modern fairytale, scored to a lush pop soundtrack.
Elle Fanning’s soaring rendition of the iconic Robyn song, ‘Dancing On My Own’, has been released, along with the first official clip.
The album is available to pre-order now.
The 14-track collection also includes Fanning’s covers of songs by such preeminent female artists as Ellie Goulding (‘Lights’), Annie Lennox (‘Little Bird’), Tegan and Sara (‘I Was A Fool’), and Sigrid (‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’). Additionally, it features ‘Wildflowers’, a new song written by Carly Rae Jepsen and Jack Antonoff.
Fanning is joined by cast members on ‘Good Time’, which was a 2x Platinum hit for Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen. Clara Rugaard, who plays a fellow contestant, covers ‘Tattooed Heart’, a song from Ariana Grande’s 2013 album, ‘Yours Truly’. The original versions of No Doubt’s, ‘Just A Girl’, Grimes’ ‘Genesis’, and feat. MØ & DJ Snake, also appear on the soundtrack.
Fanning put months of work into preparing for the role, working closely with executive music producer Marius de Vries and performing all the singing live. In addition to de Vries, the team assembled by Fred Berger included music supervisor Steven Gizicki and music co-producer Eldad Guetta, who had also worked with Berger on La La Land. (The La La Land soundtrack, released by Interscope Records in 2016, won a GRAMMY® Award.)
‘Teen Spirit’ stars Elle Fanning (‘The Beguiled’, ’20th Century Women’), Zlatko Buric (‘Pusher’, ‘2012’) and Rebecca Hall (‘Christine’, ‘The Gift’). Directed and written by Max Minghella (‘The Social Network’, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) and produced by Fred Berger (‘La La Land’, ‘Destroyer’).
