Listen To Adam Driver And Marion Cotillard Sing In New Sparks Track From Leos Carax’s “Annette”

And suddenly the peculiar pop band Sparks is hot again. Not only are they the subject of Edgar Wright’s festival darling doc The Sparks Brothers, but their sound will be featured in Annette, the first English-language film from director Leos Carax. Not only will we hear their music and lyrics, but the song will have vocal performances by stars Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg.

You can get a listen at the Sparks track “So May We Start”, featuring Cotillard, Driver, and Helberg on vocals. Sparks and Carax collaborated on the lyrics, as well.

Here’s the synopsis for Annette:

Present-day Los Angeles. Henry is an outspoken stand-up comedian, Ann, a world-famous singer. They’re a happy celebrity couple, living life in the glare of the spotlight, but their world is turned upside-down by the birth of their first child, Annette, a mysterious little girl with an exceptional destiny. A Leos Carax film starring Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard and Simon Helberg, Annette is produced by Charles Gillibert (CG Cinéma International), Paul-Dominique Vacharasinthu (Tribus P. Films) and Adam Driver.

The Amazon Studios film opens in theaters on August 6th, followed by Amazon Prime on August 20th.
