Brion's a solo musician in his own right but has also crafted the scores for I Heart Huckabees, Punch-Drunk Love and the aforementioned Sunshine. Brion will collaborate with Kaufman again, this time composing a song entitled "Little Person" for Kaufman's directorial debut Synecdoche, New York.

The track can be streamed from the film's Facebook page.

Enlisting vocals from jazz singer Deanna Storey, the sleepy piano ballad will certainly only improve when viewed in context of Kaufman's film. But Brion's lyrics are as melancholic and timeless as ever: "I'm just a little person, one person in a sea / Of many little people, who are not aware of me / I do my little job, and live my little life / Eat my little meals, miss my little kid and wife."

Synecdoche, New York—starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Michelle Williams, Samantha Morton and Catherine Keener—hits theaters in select cities Oct. 24.
