By Alex HudsonThe soundtrack for Judd Apatow's upcoming This Is 40 has already generated some buzz thanks to Jon Brion's score and a contribution from Fiona Apple that reportedly landed her in some hot water with her label. Now, the details of the soundtrack have been confirmed.
While Pitchfork notes that Apple's original tune, "Dull Tool," was originally pegged to appear in the film but not on the soundtrack, that song is indeed included here. Other artists who offer up original material are Norah Jones, Lindsay Buckingham (of Fleetwood Mac) and Graham Parker. Brion produced all of these contributions.
A press release also notes that Ryan Adams and Wilco created tracks specifically for the album, although in the former's case, this simply means a pair of live cuts. As for Wilco, their contribution is called "I Got You," but it's unclear how this is different from "I Got You (At the End of the Century)" from 1996's Being There.
Rounding out the tracklist are previously released contributions from the likes of Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Loudon Wainwright, Yoko Ono and the Avett Brothers. There's also one selection from Brion's score.
The soundtrack arrives on December 11 through Capitol Records. The movie will follow on December 21. The film stars Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who reprise their roles as Pete and Debbie from 2007's Knocked Up.
