Teen Spirit Soundtrack

Fanning said the indie movie, written and directed by The Handmaid’s Tale star Max Minghella, benefited hugely from music label Interscope Records coming on board to give permission to use some major pop hits by its roster of artists, which “completely elevated the movie — it had to have those big tracks in there.” The 14-track soundtrack to the film, which includes Fanning’s covers such as “Lights” by Goulding, will be released on April 5.

Fanning said she was drawn to Minghella’s portrayal of the shy, reserved but determined Violet, who comes into her own as she sees her tunnel of opportunity get bigger: “I felt like I really understood that type of girl, there’s a lot of me that’s in Violet as well.”
