Listen to Lily Kershaw’s ‘Fears Become Wishes’ from Sympathy for the Devil opening scenes

Folk pop singer and actress Lily Kershaw’s ‘Fears Become Wishes’ was played on the soundtrack of the just released Nicolas Cage film Sympathy for the Devil this week.

The song was heard at the beginning of the film as the first song, and is a track about ignoring what your gut feeling tells you is real and instead remembering that most of your fears are only in your mind.

Lily Kershaw’s ‘Fears Become Wishes’ is a track from the indie singer’s second studio album Arcadia.

That album came out via the Nettwerk Music Group in November, 2019.

When did Lily Kershaw get her start?

Kershaw was given a contract with Nettwerk Music after several of her songs were featured on the hit TV series Criminal Minds, and her music was beginning to come to the attention of other TV Music Supervisors as well.

That contract led to the release of her first studio album, Midnight in the Garden, in late 2013 and to the release of various singles and an EP.

Since then, Kershaw has had songs featured on the soundtracks of hit series like Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, Scorpion, Dynasty, Ted Lasso and Finding Carter.

Listen to Lily Kershaw’s ‘Fears Become Wishes‘ as heard on Sympathy for the Devil in the video, and via her Arcadia album on Spotify.

Sympathy for the Devil was released on July 28th, and is now showing in movie theaters around the United States and internationally.
