Norah Jones provides the musical centerpiece of the romantic-comedy spoof “They Came Together” that opens Friday (June 27) in theaters and on demand and stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler.
Rudd and Poehler tap the rom-com clichés in the film, scenes of which pepper the new music video for “It Was the Last Thing On Your Mind.” The filmmakers take it a step further by including “musicians at work” clichés in the video with cameos from John Stamos, Adam Scott and the film’s stars.
Lionsgate Records will release today (June 24) a digital EP for “They Came Together” featuring original songs by former Shudder to Think lead singer/film composer Craig Wedren and Amy Miles along with the Jones track. Wedren’s other scores include “Role Models,” “Afternoon Delight” and the TV series “United States of Tara.”
Jones has previously contributed songs to films such as “Ted,” “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement” and “My Blueberry Nights.” Her next project, the trio Puss n Boots, will release its debut album “No Fools, No Fun” on July 15. The band features Jones, Sasha Dobson and Catherine Popper. Watch the video below.
