“This film is a really sweet portrait of a day in the life of a curious child. A reminder of how everything can be new and alive at any moment if we only look up, shift our perspective, and remain open like children so often do,” said Somers. “The music is a collection of slow and dreamy reverb drenched piano, strings, choir melodies underpinning the spectrum of potential one good day can hold. Thanks for listening!”

Produced by Somers and Sindri Már Sigfússon, the score provides an emotional and ethereal backdrop to the short film utilizing keys, strings and a haunting choir by Alaska Reid. Ahead of the release, Animag got to wrap our ears around the original track “Here We Are.” Take a listen:

In celebration of Earth Day, Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth follows a precocious seven-year-old (voiced by Jacob Tremblay) who, over the course of Earth Day, learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents (voiced by Chris O’Dowd and Ruth Negga) — and from a mysterious exhibit at the aptly titled Museum of Everything. The insightful and poignant short film is narrated by Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep. The 36-minute film is based on the #1 New York Times Bestseller and 2017’s #1 TIME Best Book of the Year by Oliver Jeffers, which has also sold over 1 million copies to date.

From the multi-BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning, Oscar-nominated independent animation studio, Studio AKA, the special is written by BAFTA winner Philip Hunt (Ah Pook Is Here, Lost and Found) and Oscar winner Luke Matheny (God of Love, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, Ghostwriter); directed by Hunt, and executive produced by Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Sue Goffe (A Morning Stroll, Varmints, Lost and Found, Hey Duggee), Hunt and renowned author Oliver Jeffers (Here We Are, Lost and Found, The Day the Crayons Quit).
