James Murphy has a good relationship with director Noah Baumbach. Murphy scored Baumbach’s 2010 film Greenberg, and collaborated with him again for his latest film, the soon to be released While We’re Young (which I caught at New York Film Fest last year and reviewed for Monday Morning Matinee).
A lovely piece from the score called “We Used To Dance” has been released and shared via Indiewire. It perfectly captures the mood of the film (about middleage and finding youth in your adulthood) you and is just as lovely as a standalone piece of its own.
Stream “We Used To Dance” below, as well as “Only The Stars Above Welcome Me Home,” another song from the soundtrack that was previously released. Be sure to check out While We’re Young when it’s released in theaters on March 27. The soundtrack is released on March 24 via Milan Records.
Here’s “Only The Stars Above Welcome Me Home”:
