Lakeshore Records will release the original soundtrack to the Weinstein Company comedy "Butter," starring Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone and Hugh Jackman, digitally on October 9th. The synopsis? When her husband (Ty Burrell) is unceremoniously asked to step down after taking first prize for fifteen years as the master Butter Carver at the Iowa State Fair, the limelight-seeking, ultra-competitive Laura Pickler (Garner) takes on a 12-year-old, African-American (Yara Shahidi) butter sculpting prodigy in a butter carving contest of epic proportions.
With twelve tracks in all, the soundtrack features: two songs by L.A. soul/indie pop band Fitz and the Tantrums; one rather popular tune from Sigur Rós frontman Jonsi (the lead single from his 2010 solo album, often used in trailers and movies these days); Imani Coppola featuring Tim Myers; soul singer Raphael Saadiq; Atlanta, Georgia hip hop/rock band The Constellations; and New Orleans' Hot 8 Brass Band who were often featured in Spike Lee's two documentaries about Katrina, covering Marvin Gaye among others.
Directed by Jim Field Smith, "Butter" is available on iTunes and VOD now and is in theaters October 10th.
