Heart of a Dog soundtrack

Laurie Anderson's Heart of a Dog comes to UK cinemas on 20 May. The film is a personal essay, a work encompassing joy and heartbreak and remembering and forgetting, at the heart of which is a lament for her late beloved dog Lolabelle.

Laurie Anderson composed a beautiful original score for the film and the complete soundtrack recording of the film is available through Nonesuch Records on iTunes and Amazon, as well as available to listen now on Spotify. Heart of a Dog includes musical excerpts from several of her pieces – ‘The Lake’ and ‘Flow’ from Homeland (2010), ‘Beautiful Pea Green Boat’ from Bright Red (1994), ‘Rhumba Club’ from Life on a String (2001), excerpts from Landfall (2011) with Kronos Quartet – as well as the film’s closing song ‘Turning Time Around’, written and performed by Anderson’s late husband, Lou Reed.
