Listen: The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas Debuts Song from Documentary

Earlier today Consequence Of Sound featured the song “Human Sadness” by Simon Taufique and featuring The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas, and reported that the song was from the film “See’s Lost Control”

I posted this:

“See’s Lost Control” follows a woman in New York City named Ronah, according to Consequence of Sound.

“[She] teaches men how to be intimate and make love,” Marquardt told Consequence of Sound. “Intimacy is one of the hardest things to learn in life and it is becoming increasingly challenging in our modern, technologically-driven society. Ultimately, ‘She’s Lost Control’ is a story about compassion and reaching out to other human beings.”

The film will have its North American debut at South by Southwest in March.

Now it turns out that “Human Sadness” is actually from a documentary that Casablancas and Taufique worked on in 2013, and is not in “She’s Lost Control.”.

On Facebook Taufique wrote me: “Actually, the song referenced in the article is one that Julian and I worked on together for a documentary last year, not SLC.”

Taufique tells me the documentary is called “Unseen Beauty,” and “it’s a doc about Julian’s stepfather, the painter, Sam Adoquei.”

Check out the song:
