DeVotchKa Front Man Creates Score For Jim Carrey Film

Nick Urata, front-man for the celebrated Denver based romantic band DeVotchKa, has composed a soundtrack for the highly anticipated new movie I Love You Phillip Morris. The film stars Jim Carrey as a charismatic gay con man and Ewan McGregor as his lover, and will open nationwide this December 3rd. Urata and his band mates in DeVotchka previously contributed a Grammy nominated score for the film Little Miss Sunshine. Urata has also composed soundtracks for a host of additional films including The Joneses featuring Demi Moore and David Duchovny.

DeVotchKa will release a brand new album entitled 100 Lovers on March 1st. Recorded in the Arizona desert with producer Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case) the record melds an emotionally charged sonic expansiveness with the romance and celebratory energy for which the group is renowned. The record features guest percussions from Mauro Refosco of Thom Yorke's band Atoms For Peace, as well as appearances by members of the band Calexico.

You can listen to the incredible song "Contrabanda" off the band's new album care of Drowned In Sound by going here.

In addition, DeVotchKa will be embarking on a European tour with celebrated Gypsy rockers Gogol Bordello beginning this week in United Kingdom. For a list of tour dates please go to: http://devotchka.net
