The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner score Mike Mills’ new A24 film C’mon C’mon. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix as a man who unexpectedly ends up caring for his nephew. Below, listen to the Dessners’ new song “I Won’t Remember?,” from their soundtrack. Scroll down for a trailer for C’mon C’mon, which hits theaters November 19.

Bryce and Aaron Dessner’s C’mon C’mon (Original Motion Picture Score) is out November 12. The album features four collaborations with Feist. Find the tracklist and album cover below.

“Aaron and Bryce often work in a very subtle, minimal, gossamer kind of style,” Mike Mills stated in a press release. “We went through a long process filled with exploring places that ultimately didn’t work, but we had to kind of find this gentle sound, this particular melody and set of chords that really holds the specific emotional world, the energy of the music becomes gentle, cloud-like, intimate.”

In addition to C’mon C’mon, the Dessners are also behind the soundtrack for Joe Wright’s adaptation of the musical Cyrano, which stars Peter Dinklage and is out on December 10. Their National band mate Matt Berninger joins them on the project, along with Carin Besser, his wife.

Mike Mills directed the National’s I Am Easy to Find. Read Pitchfork’s interview with Mills, Aaron Dessner, and Matt Berninger, “The National Break Down Every Song on Their New Album, I Am Easy to Find.”
