Season Three of 'Girls' Set to Debut New Beck and Lily Allen Tracks
According to Rollingstone.com, Girls music supervisor Manish Raval recently said that the series' third season will highlight new music from Beck, Lily Allen, Jenny Lewis and Christina Perri. The last season of Girls premiered new music from fun. and Santigold. It also helped to springboard Icona Pop's "I Love It" to mainstream popularity.
Regarding the Beck track, Raval said the artist had just completed the song and was willing to let Girls use it before the February release of his next album, Morning Phase. The Miguel track, on the other hand, was a special request from Girls creator Lena Dunham. "Very early on in the process Lena said, 'Can we just call him and see if he'll do something?'" Raval said. "We did, he said yes. It was very easy, it was very simple."
The music supervisor said that he reserved the Lewis track - which is likely not an extended version of her foray into holiday music - for an especially emotional scene. The track will serve as the end-credits music for the second episode, when character Jessa returns to the fold. "I love the song, I love the moment, I love the last image of that moment," Raval said. "I think that's my favorite spot of the season."
