CMC Pictures has released Chinese singer-songwriter SAJI‘s soulful pop ballad “Kill My Lies,” a new English song launching in support of newly released fantasy action film A WRITER’S ODYSSEY. Inspired by the fairytale phrase “once upon a time,” the song opens with a Middle-Age fairytale feeling that shifts into a darker, lovesick chorus that, like the film, ruminates on the harm that can come from being unable to give up the past and live truly in the present. “Kill My Lies” was produced by Tommee Profitt (Migos, Josh Groban, Hunter Hayes).
Of her inspiration behind the song, SAJI shared, “Every fairytale starts with ‘once upon a time,’ a recollection of the past. But sometimes, what we need is in the present. ‘Kill My Lies’ asks each of us to unwrap the bandages of lies that hold us back. Always have hope, and always keep believing.”
A WRITER’S ODYSSEY tells the story of Kongwen Lu (Dong Zijian, ASH IS PUREST WHITE), the author of a fantasy novel series following a heroic teenager on a quest to confront Redmane. Through a strange twist of fate, the fantasy world of the novel begins to impact life in the real world, leading Guan Ning (Lei Jiayin, THE LONGEST DAY IN CHANG’AN, BROTHERHOOD OF BLADES), to accept a mission to kill the author. A WRITER’S ODYSSEY is directed by Lu Yang (BROTHERHOOD OF BLADES) and also stars Yang Mi, Yu Hewei, Guo Jingfei and Tong Liya.
A WRITER’S ODYSSEY is out now in theaters and at the Vineland Drive-In in Los Angeles, CA and West Wind Drive-In in San Jose, CA. For more information and a list of theaters, please visit: www.CMC-Pictures.com/A-Writers-Odyssey
