James Franco's band Daddy (a duo with Tim O'Keefe, his old art school classmate) is putting out an album and full-length film inspired by the Smiths. The project is titled Let Me Get What I Want and it's out this spring via Kobalt/We Are Daddy. The Smiths' very own Andy Rourke plays bass on the album. Listen to new song "You Are Mine", above, via Rolling Stone.

The lyrics on Let Me Get What I Want are taken from Smiths-inspired poems in Franco's poetry book Directing Herbert White: Poems.

According to a press release, the album and film follow "three characters as they weave through the dark ways of high school: love, death, and dreams."

Franco said in a statement:

QUOTE
High school is a time of longing for the unattainable. We dream big, but we're still too young to make anything significant happen. At least I was too immature and sensitive to be the person I wanted to be. "You are Mine" is about one teenager dreaming about another, even though they'll never be together.


O'Keefe said:

QUOTE
Transforming James' poems to songs took on it's own creative process which was a new direction for me. Because the words weren't written by me, I had to take on the character of the individual whose perspective I was singing from. "You Are Mine" like many of the songs on Let Me Get What I Want expresses experiences that were relatable to my own high school experience, and therefore I had a lot of my own emotions to pull from.


I LOVE IT.
