Andre 3000 Brings His Flute to the ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Soundtrack

Son Lux scored the A24 film, which also features a duet between Mitski and David Byrne

Nearly 50 songs make up the soundtrack for A24’s next film, Everything Everywhere All at Once — and Andre 3000’s flute is featured on four of them. On Wednesday, Feb. 23, the experimental trio Son Lux detailed the soundtrack album they helmed for the sci-fi comedy, which is set to arrive April 8.

The massive track list also prominently features a duet with Mitski and David Byrne, “This is a Life,” as well as contributions from Randy Newman (“Now We’re Cookin”) and Moses Sumney (“Fence”). As for Andre 3000, the Outkast musician played flute on four tracks, “My Life Without You,” “The Boxcutter,” “Dog Fight,” and “Pinky Fight.”

Everything Everywhere All at Once was scored by Son Lux, the experimental trio comprising Rafiq Bhatia, Ian Chang, and Ryan Lott. The group said he two-hour record will “infuse humor” and “experiment from and beyond our musical backgrounds.”

“Even though we knew from the moment [Everything Everywhere directors] Daniels asked us to score this film that it would push us in new and unexpected directions, we couldn’t have predicted how much we’d learn from the project,” Son Lux said in a statement. “What emerged was our most ambitious undertaking to date, over two years in the making, resulting in two hours of new music.”

Everything Everywhere All At Once was directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (known collectively as Daniels). The film will tell the story of an exhausted Chinese American woman whose flailing effort to finish her taxes leads to a wild multi-dimensional adventure. The cast boasts Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
