How To Deal
Beth Orton, the Flaming Lips, John Mayer, Liz Phair, and the Donnas are among the artists featured on the soundtrack to "How To Deal," due this week on Capitol Records. Orton has two tracks on the album: "Thinking About Tomorrow" and "Wild World," a cover of the Cat Stevens hit that Orton recorded exclusively for the film. The original "Wild World" by Stevens (which reached No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1971) is also on the soundtrack.
New Line Cinema's "How To Deal," which opens July 18 in U.S. theaters, is a romantic comedy starring singer/actress Mandy Moore. In the film, Moore plays a high school student who is cynical about romance but unexpectedly falls in love.
The soundtrack's first single, "Billy S," is from 14-year-old newcomer Skye Sweetnam, who is signed to Capitol. Other previously unreleased songs on the soundtrack are Aslyn's "That's When I Love You," Tremolo's "Promise Ring," and Last Picture Show's "Waves."
