File this under: for completist nerd soundtrack obsessives only (which we sadly fall into quite snugly). OK, you've seen the tracklist for Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," which features artists like Benjamin Britten, Françoise Hardy, Hank Williams and more. And based on various accounts from Cannes this morning, including our own very positive revew from the Croisette, "Moonrise Kingdom" is certainly Anderson's live-action return to form. We can't wait.

Moonrise Kingdom, soundtrack

File this under: for completist nerd soundtrack obsessives only (which we sadly fall into quite snugly). OK, you've seen the tracklist for Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," which features artists like Benjamin Britten, Françoise Hardy, Hank Williams and more. And based on various accounts from Cannes this morning, including our own very positive revew from the Croisette, "Moonrise Kingdom" is certainly Anderson's live-action return to form. We can't wait.

But for soundtrack completists and Wes Anderson obsessives (of which there are many), many will note and know that every soundtrack disc is rarely ever complete. There are always a handful of songs featured in the movie that aren't on the official soundtrack for various myriad reasons; sometimes it's a rights issue and or sometimes it's simply aesthetical CD space (sometimes you want to curate a nice little disc that doesn't go on forever too).

So with "Moonrise Kingdom" screening comes the reveal of some additional songs not featured on the soundtrack. It's only six songs/pieces of music, but it's something: three additional Hank Williams songs, two variations on one piece originally written by Franz Schubert and one by Mozart, which keeps with the film's preference with choral-based classical music rather than the classic rock that has been the hallmark of Anderson's films (and which seems like a wise change of pace to us). You can listen to some of the songs below and perhaps they'll give you a deeper vibe of what to expect from the film.

In case you need reminding, "Moonrise Kingdom" arrives in theaters on May 25th in limited release and will begin to expand after that. The soundtrack disc will hit stores on May 22nd. As you were.

Additional Songs In "Moonrise Kingdom" not featured on the soundtrack
“Take These Chains from My Heart” -- Hank Williams
“Honky Tonkin’” - Hank Williams
“Cold Cold Heart” - Hank Williams
“Soave Sia il Vento” (from “Cosi Fan Tutti”) -- Roméo Fidanza (Written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
“An die Musik” - l'Ensemble Vocal (written by Franz Schubert)
“Variation 'An die Musik'” -- l'Orchestre Symphonique Bel'Artee, Arranged by Philippe Rombi (Written by Franz Schubert)
