Last month details of the new Australian film The Sapphires emerged, a true story following a groundbreaking ‘60s indigenous girl group who went to entertain the troops in Vietnam.

It stars Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell, with Chris O’Dowd as a talent scout who discovers the four singers.

Now the soundtrack has been announced, and it looks like a humdinger. Many of the Motown classics are sung by Jessica Mauboy, with Lou Bennett, Juanita Tippens and Jade MacRae filling in for the girls. There are also original recordings from Sam & Dave, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Voice star Darren Pervival.

The film will appear at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 2 and hit cinemas on August 9. But you can snap up the soundtrack early, on July 29.
