David Byrne To Work With Will Oldham On Upcoming Film Score

    David Byrne’s musical attachment to an upcoming film starring Sean Penn made news a few months back (and we noted it here), but now comes word that the ex-Talking Heads frontman will be collaborating on sounds for the movie with Will Oldham. According to Byrne, This Must Be the Place — presumably named for the classic Talking Heads song — will feature his music, but hopefully, the songs won’t be instantly recognizable as products of their creator. In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, Byrne said he’s “hoping [he’ll] be kind of invisible,” and that songs “will be sung by another person in the movie, not Sean Penn.”


    This Must Be the Place doesn’t yet have a release date. In addition to Penn, the movie reportedly also stars Kerry Condon, Judd Hirsch, Frances McDormand, Harry Dean Stanton and Eve Hewson (whose father is popularly known by the name “Bono”). [CoS]
