Pale Waves and LA-based singer-songwriter Lawrence Rothman have teamed up for a brand new track, as taken from the soundtrack for forthcoming film The Turning.
The new track, titled ‘SkinDeepSkyHighHeartWide’, see the band’s Heather Baron-Gracie and Rothman share vocal duties, giving it a rather haunting duality.
Speaking of the track and the wider soundtrack, Rothman has said: “The Turning takes place in 1990’s - instead of using licensed 90’s music - Floria and I wanted to create a soundtrack that was 90’s influenced mixing our favorite new artist and a few from the 90’s era. Giving the film its own world and its own unique version of the 90’s that only the film lives in. ‘SkinDeepSkyHighHeartWide’ was written from the perspective of Kate played by Mackenzie Davis. Her character is driven to madness from harboring a truth that know one wants to believe. The people she confides in abandon her which drives her to delusion and into a mental abyss. Heather from Pale Waves’ vocal was tracked in two takes, her voice added a beautiful rawness and urgency to the lyrics that bound together with the fractured Kate.”
The soundtrack for The Turning is due out on 24th January via KRO Records / Sony Music Masterworks - on the same day as the film, natch - and was produced by Lawrence and Yves Rothman. It features tracks from the likes of Mitski, Courtney Love, Empress Of, The Aubrey’s Ft. Finn Wolfhard, Vagabon, Cherry Glazerr, Kim Gordon and Warpaint.
