The complete soundtrack recording of Laurie Anderson's film Heart of a Dog.
 
Anderson was recently commissioned by the European TV network Arte to create a feature film - her first in 30 years. Her response was a personal essay entitled Heart of a Dog, a work encompassing joy and heartbreak and remembering and forgetting, at the heart of which is a lament for her late beloved dog, Lolabelle. 
 
The CD contains the full audio recording of the film, including all music and spoken text.
 
In addition to Anderson's inimitable narration, Heart of a Dog includes musical excerpts from several of Anderson's pieces - The Lake and Flow from Homeland, Beautiful Pea Green Boat from Bright Red, Rhumba Club from Life On A String, excerpts from Landfall with Kronos Quartet - as well as the film's closing song Turning Time Around, written and performed by Anderson's late husband, Lou Reed.
