Trailer for Zach Braff Movie Includes New Shins Song
The trailer for Zach Braff’s follow-up to ‘Garden State,’ ‘Wish I Was Here,’ features a new Shins song. Watch, and listen, to the untitled track above.
It’s been a decade since Zach Braff’s directorial debut was released along with a kick-ass soundtrack. It helped make the Shins famous, thanks to Natalie Portman’s “You gotta hear this one song, it’ll change your life, I swear” quote, referring to the band’s ‘New Slang.’
And now Braff is reportedly bringing back the band — along with Coldplay, Postal Service and Cat Power — for the soundtrack to his new movie, which opens on July 25 (the soundtrack will come out a week before that).
The movie is about a 35-year-old struggling actor who’s trying to find his purpose in life. But after a financial strain on his family, he’s forced to home school his two children and learns a thing or two about himself and life. Braff stars in the movie along with Kate Hudson, Jim Parsons and Ashley Greene.
And if it’s anything like ‘Garden State,’ the ‘Wish I Was Here’ soundtrack will most likely play out like a Braff mix tape, filled with some of his favorite indie bands.
Here’s the song that supposedly will change your life:
