Cameron Crowe‘s “Aloha” arrives in cinemas next month, which means we’ll be getting another curated soundtrack from the writer/director. Music has always played a vital role in his films, from setting the mood to adding dimension to the characters on screen, and tunes selected for “Aloha” certainly promise another textured playlist.
Leading things off are a half dozen tunes from a variety of Hawaiian music legends. Clearly, the state isn’t just a pretty backdrop to the movie, but an important setting. After that are more familiar names, mixing current indie acts and bonafide classic acts including Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, The Blue Nile, Radical Face, and The Tallest Man On Earth. Meanwhile, Jónsi & Alex have contributed two new songs to the soundtrack as well.
“Aloha” arrives in cinemas on May 29th, with the soundtrack streeting on May 26th. Full tracklist below.
