Arcade Fire’s Will Butler to record score for short film
Multi-instrumentalist is signed up to provide the soundtrack to 'Jeff Newburg’s Home Burial'
The film, Home Burial, is based on the poem of the same name by Robert Frost and follows an argument between a husband and wife – scroll down now to watch the trailer. Newburg is currently attempting to raise $10,000 to fund the project and cover fees, insurance and props on Indiegogo.
Writing about his involvement with the film, Butler said: "The music for the short film will hopefully evoke Robert Frost – formal but conversational; embedded in the early 20th century but still relevant. Darker than you might expect. Bartok meets John Carpenter."
Arcade Fire are currently working on their fourth studio album, including collaborations with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy.
