Starting their bid for a Best Song Oscar nomination early, The Weinstein Company is releasing Adam Levine‘s video for the Greg Alexander-penned song, “Lost Stars” from Begin Again which expands to over 45 markets tomorrow. Taking a cue from director John Carney’s Once which won the Best Song Oscar for “Falling Slowly” in 2007, “Lost Stars” could be a breakout hit, particularly considering the current popularity of Levine who makes his acting debut in the film opposite stars, Keira Knightley (who also has her own version of the tune on the soundtrack and in the film) and Mark Ruffalo. Here’s the video:
