Disney Film “Pete’s Dragon” to feature song written by Denton's Andrew Tinker
The song, “Nobody Knows (How to Say Goodbye),” has been recorded and performed by popular Denver trio, The Lumineers, with a single release date expected in the coming weeks.
In an interview with Tinker, he explained the process of songwriting specifically for a Disney film. “It is a very complex process. Like a series of steps within a larger series of steps. It was unclear how seriously the song was being considered until I was told that it was being recorded by the Lumineers. That was a real “WOW” moment”.
At Big Acre Sound Studios, near his hometown of Denton, Texas, Tinker is working in tandem with other songwriters to produce material for more, yet to be announced, studio projects. “I have been doing some writing with some friends in Dallas and in L.A. I am very excited about the people I am working with. It’s just the nature of being a songwriter”.
