Yes, this is a decades spanning love story set in Britain, so we’re not surprised the forthcoming soundtrack to Lone Scherfig‘s “One Day” reflects that, but man, we definitely had a time warp/flashback when we saw James was on this thing. It has been a long time since we heard those guys.
Anyway, spanning seventeen tracks — with four dedicated to Rachel Portman‘s score — the forthcoming soundtrack to the Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess vehicle is appropriately dated to a certain time and place. Tears For Fears (“Sowing The Seeds Of Love”! Total guilty pleasure), Black Grape (remember those dudes?), Primal Scream, Fatboy Slim, Tricky and Robbie Williams will easily fill the nostalgia quotient with tunes that you likely listened to on your Discman. Meanwhile, Elvis Costello keeps things fresh as he kicks off the disc with a new tune, “Sparkling Day” (and also submits older track “Tear Off Your Own Head” as well).
“One Day” will make hearts swoon on August 19th and if you like what you hear in the film, you can pick up the soundtrack the following Tuesday on August 23rd. Full tracklisting below. [Film Music Reporter]
