Mary Chapin Carpenter: Songs From The Movie Exclusive Free Stream
Songs From The Movie, with its compelling orchestral reinvention of classic Mary Chapin Carpenter compositions, is an artistic landmark for the beloved singer-songwriter. Collaborating with Composer/Arranger and Producer Vince Mendoza (Sting, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Joni Mitchell) and working once again with Co-Producer Matt Rollings (Keith Urban, Lyle Lovett), Carpenter’s new record harkens to her love of classic film and symphonic music.
Citing as inspiration such seminal film composers as Elmer Bernstein and Thomas Newman, and contemporary symphonic composers like Tobias Picker and Morten Lauridsen, Carpenter had long imagined this project but it wasn’t until she had the chance to work with Mendoza that it came to fruition.
The result reprises ten of Carpenter’s songs in Mendoza’s distinctively beautiful and cinematic arrangements—thus the album title that gathers them together—to give the listener the continuum of a film soundtrack, albeit an imaginary one.
Listen to Songs From The Movie free up until its release date, January 14.
