Jena Malone’s The Shoe: Free Mp3!

Jena Malone is best known as the young actress in movies like Stepmom, Donnie Darko, Four Last Songs, Into The Wild and, more recently, The Hunger Games, but she is also a singer and musician. Her latest music project, The Shoe, will release their debut full-length album, I’m Okay, on June 3rd. The Shoe is comprised of sweet-voiced Jena and pianist-producer Lem Jay Ignacio and they are named for Jena’s musical instrument creation “The Shoe” – an old streamer trunk filled with electronic instruments. You can stream and download a free, legal mp3 of the album’s first single, “Paper Cup,” at SoundCloud.
