'Labor Day' Soundtrack Feature Arlo Guthrie, Vashti Bunyan Plus Score By Rolfe Kent

Jason Reitman's “Labor Day,” releasing (confusingly, we guess) on January 31st, is going to be an interesting one. Reitman is the much-feted director of four films—“Thank You For Smoking,” “Juno,” “Up In The Air” and “Young Adult”—which run a gamut of emotions and tones but all more-or-less come down on the side of comedy, even if it's sometimes more than a little bitter. “Labor Day,” though, is to be a change of pace: a drama about a man on the run (Josh Brolin) who is taken in by a single mother (Kate Winslet)—or is he holding her hostage?

Jason Reitman's “Labor Day,” releasing (confusingly, we guess) on January 31st, is going to be an interesting one. Reitman is the much-feted director of four films—“Thank You For Smoking,” “Juno,” “Up In The Air” and “Young Adult”—which run a gamut of emotions and tones but all more-or-less come down on the side of comedy, even if it's sometimes more than a little bitter. “Labor Day,” though, is to be a change of pace: a drama about a man on the run (Josh Brolin) who is taken in by a single mother (Kate Winslet)—or is he holding her hostage? 

The trailers for the adaptation of Joyce Maynard's novel are heavy on voice-over and gentle, swelling music, and today we got some more news on the latter, with details about the soundtrack, composed in large part by Rolfe Kent, who has scored Reitman's other work as well as several Alexander Payne films (there are only so many “soundtrack for a bittersweet, mature comedy” gigs to go around). It will also feature a couple of '60s cult figures; “I'm Going Home” from Arlo Guthrie and “Here Before” from Vashti Bunyan.

The soundtrack streets digitally on December 17th. Check out the tracklist below. [Film Music Reporter]
