Knox featured in Chinese remake of "What Women Want" (我知女人心)

Knox co-wrote, sings, and plays two original songs featured in the Polybona Films Beijing remake of What Women Want (我知女人心) which is set for release in Asia on February 3, 2011!  The film stars superstar Andy Lau (劉德華) in the Mel Gibson role, and legendary Chinese actress Gong Li (巩俐) playing the role Helen Hunt graced in the Hollywood original.  Knox's two songs, "Today" and "Diggin' Your Scene," hearken back to Gershwin and Cole Porter-like jazz standards of the golden age of broadway and Hollywood, capturing the innocence and hope of new romance.

One of the songs is heard as the male lead, Andy Lau, is in his apartment getting ready for a blind date.  The second song plays over a montage of the female lead, Gong Li, trying on dresses in the boutiques of Beijing in preparation for an important romantic meeting.

Knox also produced the two songs, which he co-wrote with Chinese-Australian composer Christopher O'Young, who also composed the score for the film.  The songs were recorded at the Firehouse in Pasadena, CA on December 16, 2010 and feature some of the best session players in Los Angeles including Mike Lang on piano (Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald), Edwin Livingston on bass (Natalie Cole, Queen Latifah), and Bryan Taylor on drums (Gwen Stefani, Abe Laboriel).

Yes, the songs are sung in English! -- and the film actually has quite a bit of spoken English in it, as well as Mandarin of course.
