LOS ANGELES (AP) — What do [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Norah Jones[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Carly Simon[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Scarlett Johannson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ben Harper[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bob Weir[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Steven Stills[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vincent Gallo[/lastfm] have in common?

All have lent their voices to the soundtrack for a documentary about autism, which will be released Tuesday on iTunes.

Wretches & Jabberers follows two men with autism as they travel the world, aiming to change attitudes about their condition.

Musician J.Ralph says he signed on to compose the score for the film, but was so moved by the men’s story that he wrote another 20 songs — a complete soundtrack — and asked some of music’s best-known artists to give voice to them.

The documentary, directed by Oscar winner Gerardine Wurzburg, will be released in theaters in April in honor of National Autism Awareness Month.
