On Tuesday November 7th, 2006, Columbia Records/Sony Music Soundtrax will release the soundtrack to the new Will Ferrell film Stranger Than Fiction.
Music From The Motion Picture Stranger Than Fiction will feature four songs from Texas rockers Spoon, one of which was recorded specifically for the film. Additionally the film will feature a few songs composed by Spoon’s Britt Daniel and the soundtrack producer Brian Reitzell.
“When I was approached to do the music for “Stranger Than Fiction,” writes soundtrack album producer Brian Reitzell (Redd Kross, soundtracks for “Marie Antoinette” “Lost In Translation,” “Virgin Suicides,” “Thumbsucker”) in his liner notes for the album, “I thought it might be the perfect occasion for Britt Daniel (singer/ songwriter of Spoon) and I to collaborate….I was basically scoring the film with Spoon songs – it created a kind of sonic thread that had just the right amount of nervy melody and rich, simplistic tone I thought suited Zach’s story and Marc’s vision of the film. The actual ‘job’ of scoring that Britt and I were so excited about doing together became a much easier task since the existing and newly remixed music worked so well. For this soundtrack album, it seemed appropriate to include the full vocal versions of the songs so you can hear them in all their glory as the band originally intended.”
