David Dinerstein, President of Aviron Pictures announced today that the Academy Award, Golden Globe and multiple Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter has written and recorded the original song. Lennox produced the song along with the film’s composer H. Scott Salinas. It will be featured on the original soundtrack which will be released when the film opens in theaters on Nov. 2.
“It was a privilege and honor to be asked to write and record a special song for A Private War, which not only commemorates the exceptional courage and dedication of war correspondent, Marie Colvin, but, from a human rights perspective, also highlights the importance of ‘from the ground’ media coverage, in war torn situations around the world,” says Lennox.

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award-nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.
