Loneliness #3 (Night Talking)

  • songfacts ®
  • Artistfacts ®
  • This heartbreaking tune was written by Arcade Fire's Will Butler (brother of frontman Win) and frequent collaborator Owen Pallett for the score of the movie, Her. It was performed by the whole band. Butler told Billboard magazine that the score changed "radically," when Scarlett Johansson replaced Samantha Morton at the last minute. He explained: "The movie got less high-concept and became more about these two people. The music did the same thing: It started in a Blade Runner world and slowly became more piano-centric and less epic, with strings and warm synthesizers."
