The world first met Lisa Loeb via her now-iconic debut single, the no. 1 hit “Stay (I Missed You),” from the soundtrack of 1994’s Reality Bites. So it’s poetic that her latest song is also from a movie.
It’s called “3,2,1, Let Go,” and it was written for the new Nia Vardalos vehicle Helicopter Mom. She wrote the song with Chris Unck, a musician and songwriter who has also worked with the likes of Gavin DeGraw and Butch Walker. Listen to EW’s exclusive premiere of the spunky blast of pop-rock below.[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/201857528?secret_token=s-tW1IH" params="visual=true&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]
Not only did Loeb provide that song, but she also acts in Helicopter Mom (she plays an English teacher). In addition to Vardalos, the movie also stars Jason Dolley, Skyler Samuels, and Kate Flannery. Check out Loeb in action in a clip from Helicopter Mom below.
Helicopter Mom is in select theaters and on demand on April 24. That’s also the day you’ll be able to purchase “3,2,1, Let Go,” which is available via digital download here.
