From director Gia Coppola and starring Maya Hawke, Andrew Garfield, Kalena Yiaueki, Nat Wolff, Johnny Knoxville, Jason Schwartzman, Mainstream follows a young woman who thinks she’s found a path to Internet stardom when she starts making YouTube videos with a charismatic stranger – until the dark side of viral celebrity threatens to ruin them both.
The soundtrack features an original score by producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and vocalist Devonte Hynes. The album is the latest scoring effort from Hynes, following his critically-acclaimed score for director Luca Guadagnino’s HBO original series We Are Who We Are. The project also continues a longstanding creative partnership for Hynes and Coppola, the duo most notably having worked together on Coppola’s directorial debut Palo Alto.
“I love everything Dev makes,” says director Gia Coppola of the film’s score. “For Mainstream, I felt he really tapped into the many emotions you weave through when trying to coexist in this new digital world, yet still keeping it classic.”
Mainstream debuts in theaters Friday, May 7 from IFC Films.
