101 Studios has announced today that Chris Stapleton has contributed an original song for the drama Burden. The track, entitled Burden, will be featured in the movie written and directed by Andrew Heckler and starring Garrett Hedlund, Andrea Riseborough, Forest Whitaker, Tom Wilkinson, Tess Harper, Crystal Fox and Usher. The film tells the story of an orphan raised within the Ku Klux Klan who rose to the rank of Grand Dragon – and walked away from all of it with the help of a new love and an unlikely ally. Robbie Brenner (Dallas Buyers ClubEscape Plan) is producing the project for The Firm. Dickon Hinchliffe has composed the film’s original score. Stapleton has also recently recorded the Randy Newman-written song The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy for Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Burden (which originally premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival) is set to be released (in a newly edited version) in select theaters on November 1, 2019.

    What a remarkable and tender song. And so thoughtfully performed. Like everyone else I’m asking where do we get this song! There is no soundtrack and none of Chris Stapleton’s albums contain this song. Please let us know where to get this song. Thank you
