I am loving the Flag Day soundtrack that features Eddie Vedder, Cat Power and others. It is a great mix of music and cannot wait to see the film!

When I saw the trailer for Sean Penn’s new film, ‘Flag Day’ and heard that some of the music was written by Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam, not that I needed to tell anyone that, I would hope), I could not wait! Not only for the movie, as it does look really good, but for the soundtrack to come out as well. Penn and Vedder did such an amazing job collaborating on Penn’s other film, ‘Into the Wild’ and that soundtrack, released in 2007 (actually the debut solo album by Vedder), remains one of my favorites to this day. It is absolutely amazing! So needless to say I jumped at the chance to listen to the soundtrack for ‘Flag Day’ and so far I have not been disappointed. It is definitely growing on me more and more each time I listen to it. This album is a collaboration between Vedder, Cat Power and Glen Hansard and also features vocals by Vedder’s daughter, Olivia.
I have to own up to not knowing anything about Power or Hansard prior to this release (apparently they have been around awhile) but I have to give them credit for putting together some great songs on this album. There is one or two I could do without for various reasons but otherwise this is a great one to listen to. I can’t wait to see how the music is incorporated into the film.
