MADISON GATE PRESENTS ‘PARIS CAN WAIT’ ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK


Featuring Original Music by Laura Karpman and vocals by Ute Lemper

LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2017 – Madison Gate Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack from PARIS CAN WAIT to coincide with the release of the film in theaters. The album features original score by award-winning composer Laura Karpman (Carrie, Taken) and is inspired by French jazz. The soundtrack features two re-imaginings of classic French songs – “Je te veux” and “Que reste-t-il de nos amours” – sung by international star vocalist Ute Lemper.

About PARIS CAN WAIT:
Eleanor Coppola’s narrative directorial and screenwriting debut stars Academy Award® nominee Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer’s wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France, which reawakens her sense of self and her joie de vivre. Anne (Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successfully driven but inattentive movie producer (Alec Baldwin), she finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband (Arnaud Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a journey of discovery involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom, and much more.  For more information about PARIS CAN WAIT, visit http://www.pariscanwait.com.
