Well, this is going to sound weird. I showed the movie to Trent and Atticus and we walked out of the screening room and they said, “So what do you have in mind?” And I said, “The movie’s about facades. The movie is about the appearance of the good neighbour, the good husband, the good wife. So I want you to do your version of spa music. The kind of music that one hears when one goes to get a massage. I want it to be that music that reassures us that everything’s going to be OK.”

“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."
