Though initially scheduled for last December, we finally have a new Cameron Crowe movie coming our way in just over a month. And as with every new film from the writer/director, we’re also highly anticipating a new soundtrack. Today, Crowe revealed the full track listing for his romantic comedy Aloha, which stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle a launch. Crowe is an excellent mix tape creator, and he looks to have imbued Aloha with plenty of island-centric tracks as well as some other unexpected treasures, like Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” and Fleetwood Mac’s “I Know I’m Not Wrong.”
In addition to the soundtrack, Sony Pictures also unveiled the first poster for the film. From a visual standpoint it’s not exactly striking, though the tagline of “Sometimes you have to say goodbye before you can say hello,” makes a bit more sense of the title. The soundtrack also confirms that Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi is once again composing the score after first working with Crowe on We Bought a Zoo.
I know Crowe hasn’t been on fire with his last couple of releases, but I’m a big fan of the filmmaker and always happy to see unique voices being championed in the cinema, so I’m genuinely looking forward to Aloha.
Check out the soundtrack listing below, via Crowe’s website The Uncool. The film opens in theaters on May 29th and also stars Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, and Bill Murray.
