(From Business Wire)–New Line Records will release the official soundtrack from the film “The Time Traveler’s Wife” via digital download and Amazon.com’s Disc On Demand program Tuesday, August 11. The soundtrack’s emotionally moving lineup features 23 tracks from the motion picture, which will be released in theatres nationwide on Friday, August 14.

The soundtrack includes the memorable Lifehouse song “Broken,” featured in the film’s trailer, as well as a cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” performed by Broken Social Scene, whose members (Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Andrew Whiteman) make an appearance in the film as a wedding band. Rounding out the soundtrack, the album includes 21 selections from the score composed by Mychael Danna (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “(500) Days of Summer”).

A perfect companion to the timeless love story, the motion picture soundtrack will be available at all digital retailers on August 11.

“The Time Traveler’s Wife” is based on the best-selling book about a love that transcends time. Clare (Rachel McAdams) has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana) her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time traveler — cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through his lifespan with no control. Despite the fact that Henry’s travels force them apart with no warning, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love.

“The Time Traveler’s Wife” was directed by Robert Schwentke (“Flightplan”) from a screenplay by Academy Award® winner Bruce Joel Rubin (“Ghost”), based on the novel by Audrey Niffenegger. Nick Wechsler and Dede Gardner produced the film, with Brad Pitt, Richard Brener, Michele Weiss and Justis Greene serving as executive producers. The co-producer is Kristin Hahn.

Heading the film’s cast as Clare and Henry are Rachel McAdams (“Red Eye,” “The Notebook”) and Eric Bana (“Star Trek,” “Munich”). “The Time Traveler’s Wife” also stars Arliss Howard, Ron Livingston and Stephen Tobolowsky.
