Ryan Adams reboots 'Shining Through the Dark' for 'This Is 40' soundtrack: Hear it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Over a year ago, alt country’s favorite heartbreaker, Ryan Adams, unleashed the swoon-worthy “Shine Through the Dark” for a charity compilation. Among the swooned? Judd Apatow.

The Knocked Up director’s upcoming dramedy This Is 40 doesn’t hit theaters until Dec. 21, but the movie’s soundtrack is out Dec. 11 (you can pre-order it here). New material from the likes of cultishly beloved ’70s rocker Graham Parker (who has a pivotal cameo in the movie) and Lindsay Buckingham tends to do that, but one of the album’s highlights is Adams’ live recording of the song (now titled “Shining Thorough the Dark”), which you can hear exclusively here. (And if you do go see the movie, you might see Adams again, is all we’ll say. Spoiler alert!)

The forlornly folky track finds the singer doing what he does best: turning sad, blue stories into amazing, gold songs. Give the This Is 40 soundtrack song a listen below and let us know what you think of it in the comments:


Happy 40th birthday, Eminem!

Today, Marshall Bruce Mathers III turns 40. And oh, what a vitriolic, hate-filled, record-shattering, and genre-defining journey it’s been.

The guy’s got a lot to celebrate. For one, he’s the most successful rapper of all time. Seriously. He’s sold more than 90 million records. That’s more than 2Pac, Biggie, and Jay-Z. I could go on and on about his accolades  – 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP is the fastest-selling solo album in US history – but you can find those yourself on his Wikipedia page. And yes, it’s very, very long.
