Petra Haden’s Closing Credits For An American Crime

Maybe you’ve heard about the Tommy Haver-directed film An American Crime: Catherine Keener and our tag of the day Ellen Page, and tells the true crime story of the torture and murder of Sylvia Likens (Page) by Gertrude Baniszewski (Keener) in Indianapolis in the ’60s. No? Watch the trailer for a quick refresher. For the film’s closing credits cover queen Petra Haden collaborated with the composer Alan Ari Lazar, who overlapped 20+ tracks of her voice to create a chilling but meditative tapestry. The eerie calm after the eerier storm.

An American Crime premiered at Sundance and will show up on Showtime this year.
