Nicholas Sparks has teamed up with JD Eicher to create a soundtrack for his forthcoming novel, Two by Two. The album features four songs: “Two by Two” (an original song), “Not Afraid” (a re-recorded piece from Eicher’s 2016 CD The Middle Distance), “Love Is Gonna Find You” (a remastered song from Eicher’s 2011 CD Shifting), and “The Last Love Song” (a remastered song from Eicher’s 2013 CD Into Place).
The music will be posted online on either Sparks or Eicher’s websites; fans will be able to download digital copies of the songs free of charge from September 6 to December 6. Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group USA, will release the book on October 4.
Sparks gave this statement in the press release: “It’s been so stimulating creatively, and rewarding at a personal level, to collaborate with JD on the Two By Two soundtrack project. I know my readers will flock to his music because he intuitively understands the characters and relationships at the heart of this story – he is a master of complex emotion.”
