Listen to First Aid Kit’s Folky Cover of R.E.M.’s ‘Walk Unafraid’
To pair with Reese Witherspoon's upcoming film 'Wild,' an original folky soundtrack is being curated to fit directly in with the movie's central wilderness theme. The soundtrack will include a beautiful cover of R.E.M.'s 'Walk Unafraid' by Swedish sister folk duo First Aid Kit, which you can listen to above.
The movie, which is based off of the best-selling novel by Cheryl Strayed, will feature a score that spans multiple generations of music, including Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Simon & Garfunkel and Stay Gold. Pre-orders for the soundtrack, which is due out on Nov. 10, are currently available via iTunes and Amazon.
