THE LAST FIVE YEARS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) stars Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, Pitch Perfect, Into The Woods) and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) in the eagerly-anticipated film adaptation of three time Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown's acclaimed musical written for the screen and directed by Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, Behind The Candelabra). The 14-track collection features nine songs sung by Kendrick, who scored a three time RIAA platinum certified, top 10 hit with 2013's "Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone)." The "Cups" companion video also proved an undeniable online phenomenon with more than 241 million page views and counting. The album was produced by Kurt Deutsch, Lawrence Manchester and Richard LaGravenese, executive produced by Steve Norman, Lauren Versel and Janet Brenner, with new orchestrations by Jason Robert Brown.

The movie was called "one of the best movie musicals in years" by New York Magazine and "a very funny, deeply affecting portrait of love lost and found" by the Washington Post. Anna Kendrick was hailed as "spectacularly good" from the Chicago Tribune and "positively great" by The New York Post. When the film originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, it earned critical applause from all corners. "The best stage-to-film musical adaptation of the entire post-Chicago boomlet," decreed the Boston Globe, calling Kendrick to be "the first bona fide movie-musical star of her generation." "A return to the sort of musical that was popular in Hollywood during the genre's Golden Age," declared The Hollywood Reporter, while Variety simply raved, "(The Last Five Years) sounds fantastic."

THE LAST FIVE YEARS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) follows Sh-K-Boom Records' best-selling THE LAST FIVE YEARS (Premiere Cast Recording), the Grammy and Drama Desk Award-winning label's first-ever cast album released in 2002.

Funny, passionate, and exuberantly romantic, The Last Five Years takes an intimate look at one young New York City couple's half-decade relationship, telling their story almost entirely through song. Brown's Drama Desk Award-winning book and score - first produced Off Broadway in 2002 - is a wonder of invention and originality, blending complex character and creative chronology to illuminate the couple's multifaceted emotions and constantly shifting feelings towards each other.
