Published Jan 15, 2020Fresh off the breakup of his band Calpurnia, Stranger Things and Ghostbusters: Afterlife star Finn Wolfhard has released the first new song from his new band, the Aubreys. "Getting Better (otherwise)" will appear on the soundtrack to new horror film The Turning, in which Wolfhard stars.
On the making of the song, The Turning (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) co-producer Lawrence Rothman said, "Finn's character in the film [Miles] is a real musical kid and retreats to his bedroom a lot to dispense his grief and confusion into music and we wanted that represented on the soundtrack. Finn and his bandmate Malcolm came to my studio and we had a chaotic eight-hour session where it all came together fast. We blasted Jay Reatard's '90s band the Reatards in the studio during our session breaks, and a bit of that influence came into the recording of the song."
The Aubreys are composed of Wolfhard and his former Calpurnia bandmate Malcolm Craig. In addition to playing in Calpurnia together, Wolfhard and Craig both starred in PUP's music videos for "Guilt Trip" and "Sleep in the Heat," where they played young, fictionalized versions of band members Stefan Babcock and Zack Mykula.
The Turning (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) also features new music from Courtney Love, Mitski, Soccer Mommy, Empress Of, Vagabon, Warpaint, Cherry Glazerr, Kali Uchis, Alice Glass and Kim Gordon. As previously reported, the album arrives via Sony Masterworks on January 24, the same day as the film by Italian-Canadian director Floria Sigismondi.
