Film-maker and music lover Cameron Crowe is using the soundtrack for his latest film to highlight the talents of artists he discovered while making the project.

The Almost Famous director has included tracks by unknown acts alongside new tunes written for his film ELIZABETHTOWN by Ryan Adams, Tom Petty and FLEETWOOD MAC star Lindsey Buckingham.

He even invited one new group, I Nine, to sing the film's theme tune, SAME IN ANY LANGUAGE, which Crowe penned with his wife, HEART singer NANCY WILSON.

The director also includes a track by newcomers WHEAT and HELEN STELLAR, who both sent Crowe demos as he started the film and the tracks he has included on the soundtrack were tunes he listened to repeatedly while making the project.
