The Clean Cut: Lindsey Stirling performs on Disney's 'Pete's Dragon' soundtrack

Posted July 28

Violinist Lindsey Stirling can check one more achievement off her bucket list: performing on a Disney soundtrack.

Walt Disney Records is preparing to release the soundtrack to “Pete’s Dragon” on Aug. 12. The album will feature three original songs, including Stirling’s “Something Wild.”

A self-proclaimed “'Pete’s Dragon' fan,” Stirling was excited to play for the film’s score in addition to performing “Something Wild.”

“I’ve always kind of hoped someday I’d get to write on a score, be on a score, do some soundtrack work. So when I got the call, I was so excited. It all happened so fast. I can’t believe that now I’m here in London doing it,” Stirling said.

In a video uploaded by Disney Movie Trailers on YouTube, Stirling said that she had never written music the way she has for the movie.

“It was a really cool experience to kind of think, what is the boy feeling right now? If his soul was singing through a violin, what would it be saying?” Stirling said.

Stirling has over 8 million YouTube subscribers and over 1.4 billion views on her YouTube channel. Currently, she is on a summer tour and will begin her Brave Enough North American tour in September, according to the description below the video.
