Lucinda Williams Shares Song From New Netflix Movie Lost Girls: Listen
“I think the track is heartbreaking”—director Liz Garbus on Williams’ “Lost Girl”
Lucinda Williams has shared a new song that she wrote for the new Netflix movie Lost Girls. Her track, co-produced by Williams with her husband Tom Overby and recorded at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios, is called “Lost Girl.” The song plays over the end credits of the film. Hear “Lost Girl” below.
“We were very lucky with the amazing band that we were able to put together on very short notice,” Williams said in a statement. “Within two or three days we had Benmont Tench and Steve Ferrone from the Heartbreakers and Val McCallum, who plays in Jackson Browne’s band, as well as Blake Mills, who used to play in my band several years ago. It was truly an amazing band. I think it was all just meant to be.”
Lost Girls was directed by Liz Garbus. The movie premiered at Sundance 2020 and hit Netflix last week. Lost Girls is based on Robert Kolker’s book of the same name and stars Amy Ryan as Mari Gilbert, who is a mother trying to find her missing daughter.
“I was just star-struck and beyond honored that the great Lucinda Williams loved the film enough to want to create a song for it,” Liz Garbus said. “Working with her was a dream come true. She empathized deeply with Mari and wanted to write a song from her point of view. I think the track is heartbreaking.”
Next month, on April 24, Lucinda Williams will release her new album Good Souls Better Angels. Williams produced her new record with Tom Overby and Ray Kennedy, who last worked with her on the landmark 1998 album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road.
