New York-based producer Devonté Hynes A.K.A. Blood Orange scored the film adaptation to James Franco's book Palo Alto that hit U.S. theatres last month. Franco of course stars in the film, with a cast that includes Val Kilmer (who apparently took some time away from his hobby of taking depressing selfies). Palo Alto was published in 2010, a collection of short stories about kids in (you guessed it) Palo Alto, and is the directorial debut for Gia Coppola, a third-generation Coppola filmmaker with some pretty big shoes to fill.

Here's "April's Bathroom Bummer," a cut off the soundtrack that Hynes posted on his Soundcloud today. And if you're in the U.S. you can stream the whole soundtrack on Spotify here.
