Gearing up for the highly anticipated film Flag Day, Seattle Surf & Republic Records have released “My Father’s Daughter” by Olivia Vedder from the upcoming Flag Day Original Motion Picture Soundtrack available August 20th. The song was written by Glen Hansard and Eddie Vedder.

The official music video for the song features footage from the Cannes Film Festival selected film starring and directed by Academy Awards winner Sean Penn and starring his daughter Dylan Penn. The scenes from the film and the lyrics of the song tell the tale of the special bond between father and daughter.

Sean Penn says, “After this flood of gorgeous songs from Cat Power, Glen Hansard, and Eddie Vedder, we were just about to do a final mix on the film when Ed sent me Olivia singing ‘My Father’s Daughter.’ It became just the perfect cherry on top of the sundae.”

The upcoming soundtrack found Eddie Vedder bringing together Glen Hansard and noted singer-songwriter Cat Power who contributes three new original songs, along with one cover. It also features the debut of Olivia Vedder on two tracks. In total Vedder and Hansard collaborated on eight new compositions for the soundtrack.
