The song was used as a marketing scheme, “It seemed like a great way to bring a youthful demographic to what is essentially an art-house film,” said Lions Gate. Studio exec Michael Burn who received a CD of Truman’s music from friends and asked him to contribute a track. Truman had already penned ”Pearl,” having been inspired by the novel on which the movie is based. Johansson liked the song so much, she agreed to be in the video.
