Apple TV’s new prestige drama series The New Look features a soundtrack that’s assembled and produced by Jack Antonoff, the in-demand pop savant who just won at the 2024 Grammys for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical (his third Grammy in that category and 10th overall). The soundtrack collects covers of classic songbook standards from modern pop giants, and today’s track comes from Perfume Genius, the singer-songwriter born Mike Hadreas. The atmosphere is tender and intimate in the way that only Hadreas can conjure, helping to make the track the best yet from the soundtrack. Scroll down to listen.

Other covers released from the soundtrack include Lana Del Rey‘s version of “Blue Skies” by Irving Berlin, the 1975‘s take on “Now Is The Hour,” and Florence + the Machine‘s “White Cliffs of Dover,” previously recorded by Vera Lynn. Nick Cave, Beabadoobee, and Bartees Strange can be heard on the full soundtrack, release date TBD.
