Netflix announced on July 5, 2017 that actress and singer Kristen Bell recorded “Tell Me How Long” for the upcoming original documentary Chasing Coral, directed by Jeff Orlowski. Written by Dan Romer and Teddy Geiger, the song is a rousing plea about the climate crisis and the devastating phenomenon silently raging underwater -- the global bleaching of coral reefs.
"I was moved and inspired by Chasing Coral and its message of hope for our planet's future,” said Kristen Bell. “I feel a responsibility to care for the Earth in whatever way I can, and I was honored to lend my voice to the original song. As we strive to make a better world for our children, I hope this film will ignite real action in advancing climate solutions in our global communities."
Romer’s previous film scores include the Oscar-nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild, Gleason, Finders Keepers, and the Emmy-winning Jim: The James Foley Story. “Tell Me How Long” co-writer Teddy Geiger is a singer-songwriter and producer, known for his compositions "Stitches," "Treat You Better," "Mercy," and "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back."
Actress and singer Kristen Bell can currently be seen in the NBC comedy series “The Good Place.” She is also known for voicing and singing the role of Princess Anna in Disney’s Frozen, which she will reprise in the upcoming Frozen 2.
The Sundance Film Festival Award-Winning Film premieres globally on Netflix and limited theatrical release on July 14, 2017. Check out the trailer here.
