Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump has contributed to the score to the upcoming theatrical release for psychological thriller Spell, with the first single “Deep Blue Love” now available.
The soundtrack containing the soulful new song will release along with the movie Nov. 1. The film hits theaters after initially playing at last year’s LA Film Festival and Woodstock Film Festival.
In an interview with Variety, Stump said director/Valencia guitarist Brenden Walter gave him a “real chance” to compose the music.
“I was allowed to explore elements of my writing that I could never have without the narrative of the film,” he said. “This score was fantastic to work on because I got to play with the film’s theme of emotional ambiguity: How much of this is actually happening? How much of this is in Benny’s Head? Is he working towards achieving a goal or is he being consumed by some kind of ominous horror? Asking and in some cases answering those questions with music was a real thrill.”
Stump previously assisted on the score for the SyFy The Banana Splits reboot.
