If Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls is known for anything else beyond nudity, its the show’s use of music. The show’s popularity has grown so much over its first two seasons that the soundtrack for season three will include new tracks not heard anywhere else.
In an interview with Radio.com, music supervisor Manish Raval revealed that Dunham has requested a new song from Miguel and that new tracks from Beck and Lily Allen will be heard in season three.
“It’s the same sound, same vibe, but one thing that’s different this season is we’ve had the luxury of getting people to contribute brand new songs for us,” Raval explained. “We had Miguel write us a new song. We have a new one by Jenny Lewis. We have a brand new Lily Allen track. A brand new Christina Perri track.”
Raval said that they are also going to use a track from Beck’s new album. According to Rolling Stone, the album, Morning Phase, will be out next month.
The Miguel song was a special request from Dunham. As for the Lewis track, it will be used at the end of an episode, during the end credits. “And the Jenny Lewis spot scores a very emotional moment that happens in the second episode where you know the cast is reunited with Jessa,” Raval explained. “I love the song, I love the moment, I love the last image of that moment. I think that’s my favorite spot of the season.”
Girls season three premieres on Sunday on HBO at 10 p.m.
