Grammy winner Ashanti wrote and recorded a new song specifically for the soundtrack of Dream House, a horror/thriller starring Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. Morgan Creek Productions and Written Entertainment announced Ashanti’s “Never Too Far Away” will be featured in the film’s soundtrack, with Dream House heading to theaters on September 30, 2011.
Ashanti wrote the song after viewing the film, and tried to capture Daniel Craig’s character’s love for his family in her lyrics.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Morgan Creek, and such a talented group of individuals associated with this project. I’ve written all of my own records, songs for other artists, started my own record label, Written Entertainment, and wrote a book of poetry [Foolish/Unfoolish: Reflections on Love], so writing songs for film is a natural and exciting step of that evolution,” stated Ashanti.

About Dream House:
Successful publisher Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Rachel Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town where they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Naomi Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.
