St. Vincent contributed a new cover to the upcoming soundtrack for A Bigger Splash, which stars Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes who play a rocker and filmmaker respectively. It’s a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Emotional Rescue,” and it’s a funky and muted departure for the indie rock star compared to the tight compositions of her 2014 self-titled, but it still sounds very good! Kamasi Washington/Kendrick Lamar collaborator Terrace Martin plays sax on it. Listen below.
Here’s what she said about the track in a newsletter:
i saw an 11 AM showing of “i am love” at the sunshine cinema on houston street. i walked out of the theater in a daze, wandered into a nearby church, found the last pew, and wept for an hour. so when luca asked me to be involved in his latest film, i said yes a thousand times and then once more. luca, tilda fucking swinton, ralph, matthias, dakota– all made a beautiful film. so proud to have worked with sounwave(!!!) and terrace martin(!!!) on this stones track. they are a dream team. hope you enjoy. xx
A Bigger Splash comes out 5/13 in the US. The soundtrack will be released overseas on 2/19.
