Listen: Four tracks from Solomon-themed The Song

Listen: Four tracks from Solomon-themed The Song September 16, 2014

song2014-albumThe Identical, a music-driven, Nashville-lensed, “faith-based” film inspired by the life of Elvis Presley, didn’t do too well at the box office when it opened a couple weeks ago. But that isn’t stopping the makers of The Song, a music-driven, Nashville-lensed, “faith-based” film inspired by the life of King Solomon, from releasing their own film next week.

The film opens September 26, and the full soundtrack — featuring songs by Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris and others — comes out four days later. Among other things, the album will include a new version of ‘Turn! Turn! Turn!’, a Pete Seeger song that was based on a Bible passage that has traditionally been ascribed to Solomon. This new version will be performed by Roger McGuinn — who, as lead singer of The Byrds, famously covered this song in 1965 — along with Harris and Skaggs.

In the meantime, to whet your appetite, Noisetrade has released four songs from the soundtrack album, all sung by the movie’s stars Alan Powell and/or Caitlin Nicol-Thomas, and one of the movie’s websites has a preview of the album with short clips from all but one of the tracks. (The one holdout is ‘Turn! Turn! Turn!’)

The film’s distributor also released this new trailer a few weeks ago:
