This song is from the Tom Cruise-starring, post-apocalyptic movie Oblivion. The French Electronic group, M83 have previously provided tracks for films such as Chronicle, The Last Song and Red Riding Hood.
The song features the Norwegian Alt-Pop singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør. In February 2008, Sundførs spurred nationwide debate when upon receiving the Spellemannprisen (the Norwegian Grammy award) for Best Female Performance, she stated: "I am first and foremost an artist, not first and foremost a woman." Sundførs' third album The Brothel was released to great acclaim in Norway, and ended up becoming the second bestselling long player of 2010.
Garrick from UsaSuch a beautiful song. I find myself liking more and more songs/music written specifically for movies. This is easily my third favorite song behind Florence The Machine's Breath of Life and Ed Sheeran's I see Fire
Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
