A film adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn Of The Screw called The Turning and directed by Floria Sigismondi (who did music videos for David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Bjork, Sigur Ros, Interpol, The Cure, Fiona Apple, and more and wrote and directed The Runaways) hits theaters on January 24. As you may expect from a director with a music background like Sigismondi, the film has a pretty amazing list of artists lined up for the soundtrack.
The film features new or previously unreleased songs by Courtney Love, Kim Gordon, Mitski, Soccer Mommy, Vagabon, Warpaint, Cherry Glazerr, Alice Glass, Alison Mosshart, Kali Uchis, Girl In Red, Empress Of, and more, and it features a score by Lawrence Rothman. Indie-music-friendly actor Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) also stars in the film, and his new band The Aubreys are on the soundtrack.
The first song to be released is Courtney Love's "Mother," and here's what Courtney says about it:
I read The Turn Of The Screw as a kid, so it’s a genuine privilege to have had the opportunity to work with the genius that is Floria Sigismondi and Lawrence Rothman on this soundtrack -– especially as I’m alongside so many other fantastic female artists I respect. I’ve long admired her work, particularly The Runaways and the Marilyn Manson videos. Floria and Lawrence had a clear vision on what they wanted to achieve and it was an honor to be invited into their studio and to become a part of it.
