The Shins have revealed new song 'So Now What', taken from the soundtrack to Zach Braff film Wish I Was Here.

'So Now What' is the first new material from the US band since they released 'Ports of Morrow' in 2012. It will appear on Braff's Garden State follow-up alongside songs by Bon Iver plus Cat Power & Coldplay, who have collaborated on the title track 'Wish I Was Here'.

"It's no secret I am a giant fan of the Shins," Braff told NPR. "For this film, I asked James Mercer if he would consider writing something original, inspired by his first impression of seeing the film. Not only did he say yes, but what he came back with gives me goose bumps every time I hear it. He is a savant."

The Wish I Was Here OST tracklisting is:

The Shins: 'So Now What'
Gary Jules: 'Broke Window'
Radical Face: 'The Mute'
Hozier: 'Cherry Wine' (Live)'
Bon Iver: 'Holocene'
Badly Drawn Boy: 'The Shining'
Jump Little Children: 'Mexico'
Cat Power & Coldplay: 'Wish I Was Here'
Allie Moss: 'Wait It Out'
Paul Simon: 'The Obvious Child'
Japanese Wallpaper: 'Breathe In' [ft. Wafia]
Bon Iver: 'Heavenly Father'
Aaron Embry: 'Raven's Song'
The Weepies: 'Mend'
The Head & the Heart: 'No One to Let You Down'


Wish I Was Here follows Braff's character Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor who reluctantly agrees to home-school his sick father's two young children. The film also features Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Homeland's Mandy Patinkin and Braff's former Scrubs co-star Donald Faison as well as Ashley Greene.
