Boyhood
Richard Linklater's upcoming "Boyhood" is truly an epic in almost every sense. Shot over the course of a decade, the film tracks the coming-of-age of a young boy in cinematic "real time," with the movie stretching to nearly three hours to envelope you in the world Linklater has put together. And so, it's only fitting that the soundtrack is equally huge and wide-ranging.

Boyhood
During the first screening of Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" at the Sundance Film Festival in January, one of the observations made from the audience during the Q&A was the jam-packed soundtrack of indie-rock songs, Coldplay, Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Jeff Tweedy, The Arcade Fire, and so on and so forth; songs that worked like chapters of the beginning of each new year in this twelve-year saga. During said Q&A, Linklater noted that he had not attained licenses for all the songs in the film yet and cautioned that the music may not be final.

Her Joaquin Phoenix Chris Pratt
Yeah, we know. With the movie winding down its multiplex, the Oscars handed out (with a win for Spike Jonze for Best Original Screenplay), "Her" seems a bit like old news. There is still one piece of unfinished business left circling the tech based romantic drama—the excellent score by Arcade Fire. The Oscar nominated work is still MIA in the form of an official release, but it seems it could be coming down the line.

Her, Joaquin Phoenix
While Arcade Fire's still (frustratingly) unreleased, Oscar nominated score is key ingredient to the melancholy romance of "Her," from the outset, Spike Jonze had a different idea about what he wanted for the music in his film. "I was initially thinking I would get a bunch of different artists to write music," the director told Digital Spy.

Spike Jonze Says He’s Unsure If Arcade Fire Score For ‘Her’ Will Find An Official Release

Ever since the talent behind the soundtrack to Spike Jonze’s “Her” was first announced—Arcade Fire, Owen Pallett, and Karen O—an intense clamor and anticipation sprung up for the end result. And true to predictions it is great, a melancholic and warm supplement to the “Adaptation” director’s latest film. But even as a full stream of Arcade Fire’s score (and Karen O’s song) last week showed promise for a proper release soon, a new Q&A with Jonze paints a much more uncertain picture.

Spike Jonze, Her, Joaquin Phoenix
An Oscar nominee in five categories, perhaps the most pleasantly surprising nod Spike Jonze's "Her" received was for Best Original Score, credited to Win Butler and Owen Pallett, but performed by Arcade Fire. And yet, even with the critical acclaim for the movie, and the biggest-band-on-the-planet status for the group, the film is still without an official soundtrack or even a release date. It's still not clear when or how we'll be able to own Arcade Fire's score (which sits alongside some other choice songs in the movie), so this will have to appease for you now (until it's probably eventually yanked).

Oscar Snubs, Surprises: 2014
Well, the Oscar nominations are in and Twitter has exploded with the usual flurry of WTF?s, OMG!s and TOLDJA!s (perhaps we follow the wrong people). And while in general it seems like a lot of the last-minute trend predictions went in the right direction (Redford went very cool for “All is Lost,” “Inside Llewyn Davis” too, though perhaps not quite icy enough to predict a near-total shut-out), in amongst the various entirely expected nominations, there were a fair number of films and performances we didn’t expect to see, and a few we had to double check we didn’t (you can read our full predictions here to see how right and wrong we were).

Her, Joaquin Phoenix
A number of enviable technological advances—at least on the surface—exist in Spike Jonze’s “Her," but for those who’ve seen the film they’d likely be traded for a standalone release of Arcade Fire’s wonderful score. Also featuring contributions from Owen Pallett and Karen O, the soundtrack has yet to be given a concrete release date, however until one emerges we’ve got a new trailer showcasing Arcade Fire’s stunning work, a fun easter egg from Jonze’s film for LA residents, and much more.

Her, Spike Jonze, Joaquin Phoenix
While you’ve probably heard it described in simple ways, Spike Jonze’s “Her” is much, much more than the iPhone movie about falling love with Siri. And it’s hardly a film about technology and our future – though that obviously is an element. In many ways, "Her" is a traditional love story and relationship movie, but finds an ambitious concept to explore notions of connection, isolation, loneliness and loss.
