EXCLUSIVE: “Lost Stars”, the Oscar-nominated song from last summer’s music-business dramedy feature Begin Again, gets a last-minute buffing for the last couple of days of awards voting with this animated lyric video.
The band New Radicals performs the song, which is written by former child actor Danielle Brisebois and Gregg Alexander, who created much of the movie’s music. Not incidentally, New Radicals’ lineup features Alexander and Brisebois.
In the film written and directed by John Carney, the song is putatively written by Keira Knightley‘s character and performed by Adam Levine, the Maroon 5 frontman who amusingly plays her adulterous rock star of an ex-boyfriend. The film also stars Mark Ruffalo, Halee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Mos Def and James Corden.
