Unreleased Elliott Smith Songs Confirmed on 'Heaven Adores You' Soundtrack
Published Dec 09, 2015Earlier this year, the 2014 Elliott Smith documentary Heaven Adores You was treated to a DVD and Blu-ray release. We've since been promised that a soundtrack featuring unreleased Smith music would also come to fruition, and now details of that release have been revealed.
The Heaven Adores You OST features 20 songs, some of which are unfinished demos. Unless, of course, Smith intended for his songs to be called "Untitled Guitar Finger Picking," "Untitled Melancholy Song," "Unknown Song" and "Untitled Soft Song in F."
In a press release, soundtrack producer Kevin Moyer said, "It's a balance between rough and polished works, early and late-career compositions, instrumental and vocals. We were trying to make sure that we showed his evolution as an artist."
"It's an honour to be able to add to Elliott's already amazing legacy of official music releases," he added. "Please know that this soundtrack, much like the film, has been given the heavy thought and respect that it deserves and I have been carefully conferring with those closest to Elliott to build a track list that we think best represents the film and the artist and a friend whom we all miss."
