The documentary Citizen Penn is currently streaming on Discovery+, and we have an exclusive track from multi-Grammy Nominated, Golden Globe Nominated, Songwriter Hall of Fame Inducted Singer-Songwriter, Producer, and Composer Linda Perry’s score for the film, titled “Progress and Hope.”
Check out the song below!
Citizen Penn is directed by Don Hardy (Theory of Obscurity) and focuses on the humanitarian efforts of Sean Penn in Haiti after the country was struck by a devastating 7.0 earthquake in 2010.
“Progress and Hope’ is exactly that. This film is very intense, at times emotionally overwhelming, but underneath the rubble lies hope,” said the former 4 Non Blondes frontwoman. “We witness Haiti in crisis. We follow the devastation through the fragments left standing in Port au-Prince. With the community and Core Response working together you can see the progress made and the spirit of hope rising.”
Perry’s score encapsulates the film’s larger-than-life drama and personalities, the endurance of human spirit, and unwavering all-hands-on-deck local community problem-solving in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti and the humanitarian efforts of Sean Penn and a team of volunteers.
The soundtrack will also feature a track by U2’s Bono, titled “Eden: To Find Love,” which plays during the film’s end credits.
Lakeshore Records will release the album digitally this Friday.
