Jóhann Jóhannsson has reunited with director So Yong Kim to score her next movie.

The Icelandic composer and triumphant FACT mixer will create the soundtrack for Lovesong, a drama starring Jena Malone and Riley Keough as two best friends who spark up a romance after setting out on an impromptu road trip. Lovesong will premiere in competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Jóhannsson scored Kim’s last feature, For Ellen, starring Paul Dano, and his more recent credits include The Theory of Everything and Sicario, which we named one of the best albums of 2015.
