Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
The latest version of Romeo & Juliet hits the big screen today and we have to ask, what is a good romantic movie without an awesome theme song? The movie, starring Hailee Steinfeld & Douglas Booth, features a beautiful theme song written by Kait Weston called “Til Death Do Us Part.” We had the chance to chat with Kait about writing the song, the inspiration and her music.
Your song is the theme for the new Romeo & Juliet film. Did you write this song specifically for the film? Yes! After watching just the trailer I was so inspired. I actually wrote the song in just 2 hours which never happens. I didn’t think anything would come of it but was pleasantly surprised when everyone including the producers of the film loved it!
How is writing a song for a film different from writing a song for yourself? I was drawing inspiration from someone else’s story which I have done in the past and also my own life experiences with love which made writing this song actually very easy.
