New York Times Interview

The New York Times did this interview with Stephin Merritt. It's a quick read and offers little in the way of new information, although the new book is discussed in some depth. So, there's that.

Dans la cour

Stephin Merritt wrote the score for the new Catherine Deneuve film Dans la Cour (the English translation being In the Courtyard). The film premiered in France earlier this year, with an international release forthcoming. The film's plot revolves around a musician, so it's possible that the music is more than just incidental, although this is purely conjecture on my part. That being said, Mr. Merritt's incidental music for Eban and Charley is some of my favorite work of his, so I'd be excited to hear anything! Watch the trailer for the film below.
