Nathaniel Rateliff Pens Song for Justin Timberlake Movie ‘Palmer’
On December 17, Apple TV released the trailer for the film Palmer, an upcoming drama starring Justin Timberlake. Eddie Palmer (Timberlake), is a former high school football star who, after serving several years in prison, returns to his hometown and winds up looking after a seven-year-old neighbor.
In the trailer, you hear Colorado's Nathaniel Rateliff and his new song, 'Redemption,' which was written especially for the film.
'When I was first asked to write a song for Palmer I was told what the film was about and where the song was going to be used,' Nathaniel Rateliff said in a statement, published by Rolling Stone. 'The melody and the opening line came to me immediately.'
Rateliff said it wasn't until he had a conversation with the former-NSYNC-member-turned-actor that everything really came together, and like the movie, the five-minute ballad is about redemption. You can hear the song in the trailer, below. Palmer will be released on Apple TV January 29.
