Thanks to Lady who published this info first in her Facebook profile

"The Cure’s Robert Smith has contributed a cover of Kathryn Beaumont’s “Very Good Advice” from Disney’s original animated version of Alice in Wonderland. Kind of exciting, no?"

Sure, it's interesting.  Probably not enough to get me to buy the album, though.

that sounds great!!! i love everything Tom Burton does and was definitely exited for this movie. now it just adds up to the things i am looking forward too. i already saw a few trailers and man i want to see this movie- quick!!!

edit: i just saw that Alan Rickman will be voicing one of the characters which means i have to watch the english original :)

I wouldn't ever watch anything else, for any movie. I'm glad we don't have movies dubbed here, it would drive me mad. I can't understand how actors can take it, someone else babbling over their performance. It's like ruining half of their work, substituting it with someone else's interpretation.

Anyway, it's a nice cast:  http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt1014759/

Helena Bonham-Carter, Crispin Clover, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Alan Rickman..
and Christopher Lee as the jabberwock.  :P

I'm slightly afraid of Robert's cover version though. Ha

Robert duets with Anik Jean
 
Looks like one of Robert's recent collaborations has been revealed. According to 7Jours, Robert is doing a duet with Canadian singer Anik Jean on her upcoming album to be released in April. The song is “J’aurai tout essayé” (“I shall have tried everything”), with lyrics in English and French, comparing love and disenchantment. Looks like Earl Slick will be involved as well. (Thanks Jacques)

No.

i am hoping that not everything will be played during the movie and that it just comes with the 'soundtrack'

otherwise i am always open for a positive surprise and won't say anything until i have actually heard it...
