Avril Lavigne unveils “Alice (Underground)”
As we told you earlier, there are two music releases accompanying Tim Burton's upcoming ALICE IN WONDERLAND film. There is the Danny Elfman score and a compilation called Almost Alice which features music "inspired by" the film. The track listing for Almost Alice was released last week and for me it leaves much to be desired - peppered with MTV hitmakers such as Avril Lavigne, Owl City, and Plain White T's. The soundtrack seems to be a emo/mall punk/tween dream.
The film's first single is “Alice (Underground)” written by Avril Lavigne. You can check it out after the jump.
I made it through about 15 seconds before I had to turn it off. But then again, I don't think I make up the target demographic for this particular album. I'm much more interested in hearing Danny Elfman's score.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND will see a theatrical release on March 5, 2010. The film stars Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as a 19 year old Alice as she returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a little girl. There she is reunited with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and the Mad Hatter.
