I was so thrilled when I heard that Sondre Lerche was coming out with a new album in October. I was even more thrilled when I heard that the album was actually the soundtrack for a major motion picture by Peter Hedges (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape) called Dan in Real Life, starring Steve Carrell and Juliette Binoche!
According to Sondre’s blog entry on the project, he not only got to work with many of the amazing actors on the film, but he and the Faces Down also get to make an on-screen appearance, performing “Modern Nature” in the final scene of the film.
He also teams up with Regina Spektor on a song called “Hell No” featured on the soundtrack.

1. Family Theme Waltz – Sondre Lerche
