A midlife crisis never sounded this good. For his upcoming sidequel/spinoff "This Is 40," Judd Apatow reached out to some pretty big names to write some new tunes for his movie, with more than a few song titles hinting at a rocky emotional ride for Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann).

This is 40

A midlife crisis never sounded this good. For his upcoming sidequel/spinoff "This Is 40," Judd Apatow reached out to some pretty big names to write some new tunes for his movie, with more than a few song titles hinting at a rocky emotional ride for Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann).

Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, Graham Parker, and Lindsey Buckingham have all contributed new songs, produced by the film's composer Jon Brion, with Wilco and Ryan Adams providing new and/or live versions of "I Got You (At The End Of The Century)," "Lucky Now" and "Shining Through The Dark." (Does this mean there's going to be a Ryan Adams cameo in the film?). The rest of the set is rounded out with tunes by Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, Avett Brothers, Loudon Wainwright and more. Pretty solid Dad rock mix all around.

The soundtrack drops on December 11th, and movie arrives on December 21st. [Salt Lake Tribune/"Dull Tool" embed via Prefix]
