The Last Great Wilderness is a soundtrack album by the Scottish band The Pastels, containing music from the movie The Last Great Wilderness. The music comprises mostly short and atmospheric pieces, while three of the songs ("Winter Driving," "Flora's Theme," and "Flora Again") are brief fragments of eerie vocal loops and bells. Along with a cover of Sly & the Family Stone's "Everybody Is a Star" (which had previously appeared on a Geographic label compilation in 2002), the only other track to feature a lead vocal line is "I Picked a Flower", which features the vocals and songwriting of Jarvis Cocker.
