New Jon Brion – “Little Person”

Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, New York opens next Friday (10/24). Its punny title will be more difficult for people to pronounce than Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Adaptation, or Being John Malkovich, but we’re more concerned with its soundtrack, which includes “Little Person,” a song written by Jon Brion and sung by jazz vocalist Deanne Storey. You can listen to it at the Synecdoche Facebook page (scroll and look for the streaming interface thing). It’s a piano-based lounge tune about everyday people, not midgets. If you want, you can watch the trailer, where the song also appears.

The Synecdoche, New York soundtrack is out digitally 10/21 via Lakeshore. Info about a physical release soon.
