It's a good month to be a Jenny Lewis fan. The actress turned singer has a new album out next week, Voyager, and the first video featured none other than Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson (watch it here). And already on VOD, and opening in theatres this weekend, is the indie "Very Good Girls," starring Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, and featuring an original score by Lewis. In addition, the musician taught Olsen how to play "Go Ahead" by her former band Rilo Kiley for the film, and this new clip shows how it turned out.

It's a good month to be a Jenny Lewis fan. The actress turned singer has a new album out next week, Voyager, and the first video featured none other than Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson (watch it here).

In addition, the musician taught Olsen how to play "Go Ahead" by her former band Rilo Kiley for the film, and this new clip shows how it turned out.

"[Elizabeth Olsen] plays a young songwriter, so I chose a very old Rilo Kiley song for her to sing, because it felt conceivable that a young artist like her would write it," Lewis told Elle. "My friend Todd gave her guitar lessons, and she picked it up so fast! She’s a better finger-picker than I am now. I was embarrassed by the end of the film. I was like, 'Damn girl, you’re pushing it!' "

So, does Olsen have a potential music career in her? Check it out below along and compare to the original tune. [Pitchfork]
