Time heralded it as the #1 fiction book of 2012. The movie adaptation, out June 6, is projected to be a celestial summer smash. And we’re predicting the music chosen to accompany John Green’s emotional ‘The Fault in Our Stars‘ story will be topping many must-learn-to-play lists soon!
‘The Fault in Our Stars’ soundtrack, which quickly shot to #1 on the iTunes Soundtrack list and debuted on Billboard’s Soundtrack chart at #2, showcases many of today’s brightest mainstream and indie artists. And, it goes without saying, Musicnotes is proud to offer the best selection of instantly downloadable sheet music from the movie soundtrack! Learn a little about the soundtrack below, and click on any of the artists or song titles to preview and purchase sheet music.
Ed Sheeran wrote the film’s powerful end-credit anthem “All of the Stars” after reading ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’ When Sheeran announced his contribution to the film’s soundtrack via Twitter last month, he received 48,700 retweets, his most ever, he said, proving the strong connection between his fan base and that of the young adult novel bestseller. (You can download both Singer Pro sheet music and Easy Piano sheet music for “All of the Stars” at Musicnotes.com now!)
Another striking ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ soundtrack contributing artist is 17-year-old British vocal phenom Birdy. The film’s music supervisor, Season Kent, said in an interview that he immediately knew he would like to feature Birdy, and that she wrote the delicate piano ballad “Not About Angels” right after screening the film (we also have an Easy Piano arrangement for “Not About Angels”). Birdy’s additional ‘Fault’ soundtrack contribution, “Tee Shirt,” is a sweet love song, which also plays during the film’s end credits. Just click on either title to download touching Birdy sheet music from the movie!
Ed Sheeran and Birdy are joined by more fantastic Brits on ‘The Fault of Our Stars’ soundtrack. Tom Odell‘s phenomenal ballad “Long Way Down” is flaunted in the film, as is Jake Bugg‘s folk-guitar flair via “Simple As This.” “Boom Clap,” by fellow Brit Charli XCX, adds a jolt of entertaining, lighthearted fun to the film’s sheet music selection.
Among our other favorite tracks from “The Fault in Our Stars” is Kodaline‘s “All I Want.” The song itself tells a bittersweet tale, much like Green’s original story. Similarly, Lykke Li‘s “No One Ever Loved,” which she wrote for the movie, is a powerfully emotive piano ballad we’re definitely loving right now.
