Flora and Son Soundtrack (Theme)
The original songs for the film come from Carney and Gary Clark, with Clark also writing the score. Speaking at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, Gordon-Levitt was quoted as saying “I finally got to play music in a movie! It’s really true, I’ve always wanted to do it and I’ve always been a musician at heart and love doing it. I’ve learned to do many things for movies. I’ve learned to walk on a tightrope or play hockey or, certainly, lots of fighting and shooting and things like that. But this time I was practicing a skill that I’ve practiced most of my life, but having to do it at a bit more of a skill level than what I was used to.”
Eve Hewson could play guitar before making the film and said that everything she sings on screen is her own and told The Hollywood Reporter that although she had to overcome a “massive, massive fear” of singing in the film, he never turned towards his father. (Composer Bono) For music tips: “I would love to sing in front of the whole world.”
