David Byrne and Mitski have teamed up with Son Lux for a new song called ‘This Is a Life’. The duet is taken from Son Lux’s soundtrack to the upcoming A24 film Everything Everywhere All at Once, which is directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert and premieres at the SXSW Film Festival this week. Listen to ‘This Is a Life’ below.
“Even though we knew from the moment Daniels asked us to score this film that it would push us in new and unexpected directions, we couldn’t have predicted how much we’d learn from the project,” Son Lux said in a statement about their score. “What emerged was our most ambitious undertaking to date, over two years in the making, resulting in two hours of new music. It was an opportunity for us to play, to infuse humor into our work, and to experiment from and beyond our various musical backgrounds.”
The Everything Everywhere All at Once soundtrack, out April 8, features contributions from André 3000, Randy Newman, Moses Sumney, and more. The film hits theaters on March 25.
