Andrew Bird Composes NORMAN

NORMAN the Movie is coming out in theaters October 21, 2011 and if you’ve seen the trailer, you know it’s going to be nothing short of fantastic. Norman, a high school student pretending to be dying of cancer, has to face his realities in this guaranteed to be a tear-jearker film.

As the movie deals with issues of teen suicide, the non-profit organization To Write Love On Her Arms is a heavy endorser of this movie. TWLOHA began in 2006 to raise awareness about teen suicide through music. Norman the Movie combines these two causes & contains a full original score by Chicago’s Andrew Bird. The first two tracks have just been released and you can listen to them here on Andrew Bird’s Facebook page.

Here’s the trailer for NORMAN to see the music in action:
