Zach Braff has another song that will change your life. He swears.
Braff filled Garden State, his 2004 directorial debut, with infectious tunes from the Shins, Simon & Garfunkel, and Coldplay. Wish I Was Here, his directorial followup — which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and hits theaters across the country this summer — is similarly packed with cool music, including original songs from the Shins and Bon Iver.
But Sundance audiences weren’t privy to the final piece to Braff’s eclectic soundtrack. “We also have an original song sung by Cat Power, written by Chris Martin,” Braff says. “It wasn’t ready yet for [Sundance]. It’s the title song of the movie. It’s one of the most amazing songs ever.”
Wish I Was Here debuts in New York and Los Angeles July 18. The film opens in additional cities July 25.
