We’re thrilled to share “End Song” the first single from Alex G’s highly anticipated debut film soundtrack for We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, which opens in theaters this April after premiering at last year’s Sundance Film Festival . Directed by Jane Schoenbrun, the, haunting coming-of-age story follows a shy teenage girl named Casey (played by Anna Cobb) who becomes immersed in an online role-playing horror game. “End Song” features as the film’s end credits theme with original lyrics written specifically for the film.
“Whenever it rains at night I put on Alex’s score and listen to how the rain on my roof sounds mixed with Alex’s beautiful, lonely music,” Schoenbrun says of Alex’s music. “I’ve been a fan of Alex’s records for so long, and it was literally a dream come true to get to collaborate with him on my first feature. I can’t imagine a better or more moving accompaniment to the film.”
The track arrives alongside a mesmerizing, lo-fi lyric video by director Jane Schoenbrun ahead of the soundtrack’s April 15 release. Listen to the full track below and follow the official soundtrack playlist here.
