‘Love The Coopers’ Soundtrack, Aka Love Robert Plant & Alison Krauss

The soundtrack for CBS Films’ holiday comedy Love The Coopers won’t street until November 13, the same day the movie hits theaters, but this morning’s tease pretty much made my day: there’s a new original song (a Christmas one) on the album from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, who in 2007 teamed for the Grammy-winning Album of the Year Raising Sand but haven’t recorded anything together since.

It’s a coup for CBS Films, which is good at the care and feeding of the music in its films — the studio guided the cool folk soundtrack (OK, they had help from uber-producer T Bone Burnett) for the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis that featured music from Bob Dylan, Marcus Mumford and the Punch Brothers and of course the film’s stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver and Justin Timberlake. The Coopers soundtrack, from Republic Records, also features two Dylan songs, as well as Nina Simone, Sting and Fleet Foxes among others.

Love The Coopers centers on four generations of a family who come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, and a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down. Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Amanda Seyfried, Anthony Mackie and Marisa Tomie lead the ensemble cast helmed by Jessie Nelson.

Check out Plant and Krauss’ video released today for “The Light Of Christmas Day.”
