Joss Whedon isn’t exactly keeping a low profile. He’s currently directing “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time, producing “Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” — and in his off-hours, writing the independently released “In Your Eyes,” via his own production company Bellweather Pictures.
But Whedon didn’t just write “In Your Eyes,” he also provided a song for the soundtrack. The song, “Crumblin’” is performed by Noah Maffit and Jessica Freedman, and marks the first time Whedon has penned music for the screen since “Much Ado About Nothing” in 2012.
For those who know Whedon better from his time behind the camera than his time behind the piano, the multi-talented creator has a long history with the musical arts. After (surprisingly) writing a song for the direct-to-DVD “The Lion King 2,” he composed the songs for the legendary musical episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” titled “Once More With Feeling.” A critical and fan-friendly hit, it has spawned multiple sing-alongs and screenings over the past decade.
He then wrote the iconic title track for his own show, “Firefly,” in 2002, followed by the highly successful web series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” in 2008, which included more than eight new songs.
Other than the musical commentary track for “Dr. Horrible,” Whedon hasn’t had a multitudinous musical output as of late, but hopefully this “In Your Eyes” track will change his tune.
The soundtrack for the movie will hit digitally on June 10, and CD on July 8 from Lakeshore Records, but you can exclusively listen to the Whedon written track right here, right now. Check below for a full track listing, which also includes songs by Iron & Wine, and Santigold:
