THE LAST FIVE YEARS (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) is the musical companion to the RADiUS-TWC film, which will be released February 13th, starring Academy Award® nominee Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, Pitch Perfect, Into The Woods) and Tony Award® nominee Jeremy Jordan (Newsies). It is the film adaptation of 3x Tony Award® winner Jason Robert Brown's acclaimed musical written for the screen and directed by Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King,Behind The Candelabra). The 14 track collection features nine songs sung by Kendrick, who scored a 3x RIAA platinum certified, top 10 hit with 2013's "Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone)." The "Cups" companion video also proved an undeniable online phenom with more than 176 million page views and counting. The album was produced by Kurt Deutsch, Lawrence Manchester and Richard LaGravenese, executive produced by Steve Norman, Lauren Versel and Janet Brenner, with new orchestrations by Jason Robert Brown.
THE LAST FIVE YEARS (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) follows Sh-K-Boom Records' best-selling THE LAST FIVE YEARS (PREMIERE CAST RECORDING), the Grammy and Drama Desk Award-winning label's first-ever cast album released in 2002. The deluxe CD soundtrack poster bundle features a beautiful Digipak, containing an exclusive film poster and picture disc as well as a stunning full-color 36 page booklet with complete lyrics, images from the film, and liner notes from both Brown (Parade, The Bridges of Madison County) and LaGravenese.
The Last Five Years had its world premiere earlier this year at the Toronto International Film Festival, earning critical applause from all corners. "The best stage-to-film musical adaptation of the entire post-Chicago boomlet," decreed the Boston Globe, hailing Kendrick to be "the first bona fide movie-musical star of her generation." "A return to the sort of musical that was popular in Hollywood during the genre's Golden Age," declared The Hollywood Reporter, while Variety simply raved, "(The Last Five Years) sounds fantastic."
