“Capitol will release a soundtrack of Love & Mercy, Pohlad told Billboard, although he has no further details.”
Pohlad — producer of such films as 12 Years a Slave and The Tree of Life — doesn’t know if he would’ve proceeded with the project without Wilson’s blessing.
"I can’t answer that because so much of what developed out of it was based on the ability to get into tracks," he said. "From a music perspective, certainly, the ability of Atticus [Ross] and I to get into the tracks and play with them was important. Also to have the music in the film was important. It was not ever going to be a Mama Mia! kind of movie. We didn’t want that.
"Brian and Melinda were involved from the beginning and we knew that we would have the rights to the music from the beginning. Now from there, it was a matter of also building trust with Brian and Melinda so they would open up more of the unreleased stuff or the tracking sessions that they have."

New Audio from the Gone Girl website. From the file name, and the style changes within, it’s likely this is a mix of more than one track from the soundtrack.
"Love & Mercy"
Synopsis: The story of Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson, and his struggle with addiction and mental illness, told across two time periods.
What You Need To Know: Generally speaking, the idea of another potentially bland music biopic is one that makes our heart sink, and yet “Love & Mercy” is one of our most anticipated films of the festival. In part, it’s because of the subject matter: Brian Wilson has always been one of pop’s most fascinating figures, and rather than attempting to span an entire life, the approach here seems to be focused on his sessions with a controversial therapist. In part, it’s because of an excellent cast assembled: Paul Dano plays the young Wilson, and John Cusack the older, with Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks among the supporting players. And furthermore, there’s a lot of strong behind-the-scenes talent involved: Oren Moverman co-wrote the script, Wes Anderson DoP Robert Yeoman shot the film, “The Social Network” co-Oscar winner Atticus Ross is scoring, and though director Bill Pohlad —making his sophomore feature— is known more as a producer, he’s got great taste, having been partly behind films like “Brokeback Mountain,” “The Tree Of Life” and “12 Years A Slave.” Our hopes are high that this is much more than just cursory look at one of rock ‘n roll’s most complex figures.
