'Girls' Gets Jenny Lewis, Cat Power, Vampire Weekend, Miguel for New Soundtrack
Published Jan 15, 2014After recently announcing some exclusive tunes appearing throughout the third season of HBO series Girls, the show has now let loose details on its second official soundtrack. Equipped with new cuts from Miguel, Jenny Lewis, Beck and more, Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do... Music From the HBO Original Series arrives digitally February 11 via Atlantic Records.
The 15-song set comprises material delivered specifically for the show, including new tunes from Jenny Lewis, Michael Penn and Zero DeZire, as well as a Cat Power remix. Also included is the previously hinted-at Miguel track "simplethings." A recent interview with musical supervisor Manish Raval noted that it wasn't hard to rope the R&B singer into the project; all they had to do was ask.
"We reached out to him," Raval told Radio.com. "We are a huge fan of his and very early on in the process Lena [Dunham] said, 'Can we just call him and see if he'll do something?' We did, he said yes. It was very easy, it was very simple."
Elsewhere, Beck was tapped to contribute his Morning Phase's "Blue Moon," while brand new tunes have also been loaned to Girls by Lilly Allen and Christina Perri. The rest of the soundtrack is filled up with previously released tracks from Vampire Weekend, Father John Misty, M Ward, Oasis and more.
You'll find the full tracklisting down below, where you'll also find a stream of the Jenny Lewis track "Completely Not Me."
Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do... Music From the HBO Original Series was compiled by Manish Raval, fellow Girls music supervisor Tom Wolfe and soundtrack producer Kevin Weaver (Boardwalk Empire, True Blood - Volumes 1 & 2).
Girls' third season kicked off last Sunday (January 12).
