Lightspeed Champion to perform Cat Stevens’ Harold & Maude soundtrack

Uncut reports that Lightspeed Champion (a.k.a. Dev Hynes) will perform live Cat Stevens’ music from the 1971 film Harold and Maude following a screening of the movie on December 11.

Lightspeed Champion is to perform songs by Cat Stevens from the soundtrack to cult film Harold and Maude at a special screening in London next month.

The ‘Roots and Shoots’ winter edition takes place at London’s NFT1 on December 11 and will see Lightspeed Champion, aka Dev Hynes perform a special acoustic set after Hal Ashby’s film screens.

Harold and Maude is an uplifting dark comedy and stars Ruth Gordon, Bud Cort and Vivian Pickles, Harold and Maude is an oddball existential black comedy exploring an unlikely relationship between death-obsessed rich boy Harold (Bud Cort), and the lively, eccentric septuagenarian Maude (Ruth Gordon), who he meets at a funeral. 

Highlights from the Cat Stevens-penned soundtrack include “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out” and “Don’t Be Shy” – most of the tracks from the film’s OST also appear on Stevens’ Tea For The Tillerman album.
