Mother West announces the release of the official soundtrack playlist from the Universal Pictures film The List out now on VOD. Directed by Melissa Miller Costanzo, The List follows bright-eyed Abby (Halston Sage), who finds her life in freefall after her fiancé (Jonah Platt) sleeps with a celebrity on his “free pass” list.

To distract herself from his cheating, Abby and her best friend Chloe (Chrissie Fit) decide the only way she can move forward is to sleep with a celebrity from her own list. Abby sets out for Los Angeles, the “perfect” place to meet the leading man of her dreams, but when she meets Jake (Christian Navarro), a charming local waiter with big dreams of his own, she starts to reconsider what it is that she’s looking for.

Music Supervisor Charles Newman (All These Small Moments, Millennium Bugs) worked with Miller to find the songs for the film while bringing select artists in to write custom tracks for certain scenes. What resulted was a diverse collection of tracks spanning genres from indie-folk, hip-hop, indie-pop and rock, creating a modern, fun soundtrack taking us from the streets of NYC to the beaches of LA.

Director Melissa Miller adds:

 “I think the hardest thing about doing a rom-com is finding the right music. You want it to be catchy and have enough energy to feel familiar and move the story along. ”

The score for the film was composed by Maxton Waller, who also contributes two indie rock songs along with the soundtrack featuring music from fellow indie artists Sandflower, The Bones of JR Jones, Kris Gruen, Carly Pearl, Frank Bell, PLEASE, Oshima Brothers, Byland, Mother Feather, The Cavves, Austin Hartley-Leonard, Long Live Phoenix, and The Davenports. Along with Newman adding music production efforts from his LA-based Cottage Sounds studio, NYC producers David Sisko and Mike Abiuso were brought on to help hash out some of the productions on the custom tracks.
