Sony Music Entertainment Australia is proud to announce WILD: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the musical companion to the upcoming Fox Searchlight Pictures film of the same name which opens in select theatres across Australia on January 22, 2015.
WILD: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack boasts an impressive array of artists, including Simon & Garfunkel, The Hollies, First Aid Kit, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen and Wings.
Highlighted by a stunning cover of R.E.M.’s ‘Walk Unafraid’, by acclaimed Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit,the 15-track collection showcases many artists of different genres and eras, combining to complement the Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club), directed film starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line), and Academy Award® nominated screenwriter Nick Hornby (An Education).
The film brings bestselling author Cheryl Strayed’s extraordinary true-life adventure to the big screen. Tired of years of reckless living, Strayed sets out to hike more than 1000 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail on her own. WILD powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures as she forges ahead – on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
