José González was busy with Junip this year, but not too busy to contribute to the soundtrack of the new Ben Stiller movie. “Step Out” and “#9 Dreams” are set to accompany the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The movie’s plot, according to IMDB:
A day-dreamer escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker are threatened, he takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
Sounds intense, and José’s beautiful, orchestrally boosted folk sounds should fit nicely with all that heroism, romance, and action.
