KRO Records/Sony Records have teamed up with multiple artists for the new soundtrack for The Turning, a new film directed by Floria Sigismondi, and starring Finn Wolfhard, Mackenzie Davis, and Brooklynn Prince, which is set to be released next January. This new soundtrack is set to feature artists such as Courtney Love, Mitski, Soccer Mommy, Empress Of, Vagabon, Warpaint, Cherry Glazerr, Kali Uchis, Alice Glass, Girl In Red, Kim Gordon, and Wolfhard’s new band The Aubreys.
This soundtrack is produced by Los Angeles singer/songwriter Lawrence Rothman and producer Yves Rothman, and was partially inspired by the soundtracks from classic 1990s films. “We were both inspired by the classic 90’s soundtracks – Romeo and Juliet, Lost Highway, The Crow, the sessions were chaotic and inspired, it was a fever dream for months. Yves and I are beyond ecstatic to have worked with so many of our favorite artists,” Lawrence Rothman explained in a press release.
Sigismondi also wanted to channel classic 1990s soundtracks, stating “”I wanted original songs you have never heard and a soundtrack that was a nod to the 1990s, but singularly unique to the atmosphere and world I created in The Turning. I had an inspiring time collaborating with Lawrence and Yves Rothman.”
The upcoming film is inspired by the Henry James horror novella The Turn of the Screw, which was noted for the multiple interpretations of the story. The late 19th century story is being interpreted as a haunted house thriller for the upcoming film
“The Turn of the Screw was a seminal piece of literature for me when I was a teen, so when Floria Sigismondi approached me to produce all new and original music for her film, curated like the classic 90s soundtracks, it was a dream come true,” Lawrence Rothman explained. “I had just started my new record label KRO Records with Yves Rothman and Justin Raisen. I already had a compilation project much like the soundtrack in the works with multiple artists, so the timing was serendipitous.”
All of the songs on the project are soundtrack originals, with the exception of “Cop Car,” by Mitski which has been unreleased in a studio format, but performed live several times since 2014.
Gordon will release the soundtracks final song “Silver.” Her most recent album release No Home Record dropped earlier this year.
