‘If I Stay’ Soundtrack Details Announced

If I Stay Soundtrack Track List

The soundtrack to the dramatic film If I Stay will arrive on August 19, 2014, three days before the film’s theatrical release, and will feature songs by Sonic Youth, Ben Howard, and Beck. The movie’s based on the bestselling book by Gayle Forman and music is integral to the storyline. “One of the best things about the movie is getting to hear all the great music you don’t get to hear when you read the book,” explained writer/executive producer Forman after seeing the film and hearing the soundtrack. “The way they brought the music to life gives the story a whole new dimension.”

Director R.J. Cutler added, “It was immediately clear to me that If I Stay needed to feature a soundtrack assembled from a wide variety of styles and genres and would meld together to form an emotional, symphonic whole. The songs would reflect Adam’s roots in punk music and his contemporary sensibility, as well as the classical canon that Mia would master to apply to Juilliard. As I would often tell the cast and crew, in the world of If I Stay, music is the air that people breathe.”
