Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy Covers Woody Guthrie’s ‘Union Maid’ for ‘When You Finish Saving the World’ Soundtrack

    Jeff Tweedy shared his rendition of the labor anthem ‘Union Maid’, written by Woody Guthrie. It appears as a bonus track for the soundtrack to Jesse Eisenberg’s When You Finish Saving the World, the A24 coming-of-age drama starring Julianne Moore and Finn Wolfhard. Give it a listen below.

    The When You Finish Saving the World soundtrack features original music by Finn Wolfhard and Jesse Eisenberg as well as a score by composer Emile Mosseri. In a statement, Eisenberg said: “Emile is a genius. The idea behind the score is that when Ziggy’s on the screen it’s almost a manifestation of his persona, so the instruments have this certain tonal feel like they’re emerging out of cheap equipment. Of course, Evelyn’s soundtrack is all classical because that’s all she listens to and is what’s in her head. What makes it fun is that these sounds compete with each other throughout the movie, depending on who is dominating a particular scene.”
