19 MAY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) - Today, Lord Huron unveiled a new song entitled “Ace Up My Sleeve”, which was featured in the new film The Starling Girl, notably scored by Lord Huron vocalist/guitarist Ben Schneider.
The Starling Girl opens in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, May 12, with additional markets following on Friday, May 19. The film was written and directed by Laurel Parmet and stars Eliza Scanlen, Lewis Pullman, Wrenn Schmidt, Austin Abrams, and Jimmi Simpson.
Listen to “Ace Up My Sleeve”—HERE.
Speaking on the new song and its involvement in The Starling Girl, lead singer Ben Schneider said: “Being asked to compose a song that actually plays a role in the story is a dream come true for a songwriter. To have the song function in service of the narrative of such a beautiful film in that way is really special.”
“Ace Up My Sleeve” channels the echoes of classic country through a modern, alternative prism. Slide guitar wails over breezy strumming as Schneider lets off a hummable melody on the hook, “I can’t lose. There’s an ace up my sleeve.” It instantly captivates and seamlessly fits The Starling Girl. This marks the first time Schneider has composed the score of a major motion picture. Watch the trailer for the film HERE.
Later this month, Lord Huronwill head out on a much-anticipated 2023 North American tour. The tour starts May 24 at the Redding Civic Auditorium in Redding, CA and includes two sold-out nights at both Red Rocks and Toronto’s fabled Massey Hall.

About The Starling Girl
Seventeen-year-old Jem Starling struggles to define her place within her fundamentalist Christian community in rural Kentucky. Even her greatest joy of dancing with the church group is tempered by worry that her actions are sinful and she is caught between a burgeoning awareness of her own sexuality and her religious devotion. With the return of Owen, an enigmatic youth pastor, Jem soon finds herself attracted to his worldliness and charm. Slowly, he draws her into a dangerous relationship that could upend their entire community.
About Lord Huron
Lord Huron first made a name for themselves with their debut album Lonesome Dreams and shortly after Strange Tales, which featured the triple-platinum single “The Night We Met.” In 2018, Lord Huron earned widespread critical acclaim with their first Top 5 debut on the Billboard Top 2—with their third album, Vide Noir. A cinematic collection of pensive provocative, and powerful rock, the record garnered praise from NPR, Time, Los Angeles Times, Spin, Stereogum, Refinery29, UPROXX, and more as singles such as “Wait by the River” (which the band performed on “Late Night with Seth Meyers”) and “When the Night is Over” generated tens of millions of streams. Their recent album Long Lost, featuring #1 song “Not Dead Yet” debuted #1 on The Americana/Folk Album and Tastemaker Albums Chart, #2 on Vinyl Albums & Alternative Albums chart, #3 Top Rock Albums Chart, #4 Top Album Sales Chart and #23 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also received critical acclaim from the likes of Wall Street Journal, Brooklyn Vegan, NPR, American Songwriter, All Music, Uproxx, WNYC, Flood, JamBase and more all praising the immersive world Lord Huron has created with the album and its four-part live event Alive From Whispering Pines featuring mysterious character Tubbs Tarbell. In addition, the band went on to perform “Mine Forever” on The Late Late Show with James Corden, “I Lied” with Allison Ponthier on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CBS This Morning: Saturday, “Not Dead Yet” on Jimmy Kimmel Live and a live set on NPR’s World Café. The band’s extensive touring includes headline shows at some of the most storied venues in the country (including the Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks, and the Ryman Auditorium) and prime slots at festivals ranging from Coachella to Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo and more.
