The romantic drama tells the story of an aspiring singer-songwriter and a soldier who fall hopelessly in love despite their differences.

Unsurprisingly, the movie’s soundtrack plays a central role in setting the mood and underscoring the film's most dramatic moments.

The entire soundtrack is performed by singer and actress Sofia Carson, who takes on the lead role of Cassie, and includes original compositions she co-wrote with Justin Tranter as well as covers of well-known hits including Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline.

"When it came time to begin the songwriting process for our soundtrack, Les, Liz, Elysa and Netflix trusted me to choose who I wanted to collaborate with to bring the music to life," Carson explained in the film's press notes.

"The first person that came to my mind and heart was the incomparable Justin Tranter. Justin is one of the most renowned writers of our time, with an incredible gift to write songs adored by the world."

“They’re a bona fide hitmaker with multiple collaborations with Lady Gaga and songs like Sorry for Justin Bieber and Lose You to Love Me with Selena Gomez,” added director Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum, who also explained that the music in the film changed rather a lot during the development process.

"Originally, the script was set in Austin and there were shades of Country in the music, but, once we changed it to California, we decided to go more pop singer/songwriter," she said.

"It was a great exercise to pull from the script and track Cassie’s evolution through the songs she’s writing. We got to essentially ‘sing the subtext', which enriched the storytelling."

You can find the full soundtrack list below, including four original songs – Come Back Home, Blue Side of the Sky, I Hate the Way and I Didn’t Know.
