Pieces of April [Soundtrack]

news & reviews

  • about this album

    Stephin Merritt offers four previously unreleased Magnetic Fields tracks and the specially written “One April Day” on the soundtrack to Peter Hedge’s acclaimed 2003 film Pieces of April, starring Katie Holmes, Oliver Platt, and Patricia Clarkson. Like Merritt’s songs, the film deftly balances humor and pathos. The Independent (UK) praised Merritt’s “exquisite, finely-rendered adult pop.”
