Sony Masterworks releases the original motion picture soundtrack for Yellow Rose, Eva Noblezada‘s debut film.

It also features the original music score composed by Christopher H. Knight. Listen to the album via Spotify:
In an article by Lia Chang, film director Diane Paragas says “Music is truly the heart and soul of Yellow Rose. Even if you’re not a country fan, I know you will love these songs performed by the extraordinary Eva Noblezada, legendary Lea Salonga and Dale Watson. Dale also contributed his amazing songwriting talents to the film along with myself and Thia Megia. In addition, we include the haunting score from our composer Christopher H. Knight. I think the number one question I get asked at every Q&A is if Yellow Rose will get a soundtrack. I’m proud to finally say that Sony Music is making this dream a reality!”
According to the film’s official website, Yellow Rose follows the life of Rose, an undocumented Filipino girl, dreams of one day leaving her small Texas town to pursue her country music dreams. Her world is shattered when her mom suddenly gets picked up by immigration and Customs Enforcement. Rose, facing this new reality, is forced to flee the scene, leaving behind the only life she knows and embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she searches for a new home in the honky-tonk world of Austin, Texas.
