AceShowbiz - With a few days left until the 2015 Academy Awards, the writers behind Best Original Song nominee "Lost Stars" promote the track by releasing a new lyric video. Premiered via Deadline on Monday, February 16, the clip features several animated characters flashing against a white backdrop along with the lyrics that are mostly written in black letters.
"Lost Stars" appears on the soundtrack of last year's "Begin Again". The mid-tempo ballad was co-penned by Danielle Brisebois and Gregg Alexander who also performed it with their bandmates from The New Radicals.
In the movie, meanwhile, the song was written by Keira Knightley's character and was sung by her boyfriend, played by Adam Levine. The Maroon 5 frontman will deliver the live rendition of the track at this weekend's Oscars.
In the Best Original Song category, "Lost Stars" is pitted against "Glory" (Common and John Legend from "Selma"), "Grateful" (Rita Ora from "Beyond the Lights"), "Everything Is Awesome" (Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island from "The Lego Movie") and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" (Glen Campbell from "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me").
