The inescapable Jack Antonoff continues to expand his stamp on popular music, with yet another project dropping in the lead-up to the self-titled fourth release from his band Bleachers. The producer has compiled a soundtrack to the upcoming Apple TV+ period fashion drama series The New Look, recruiting the likes of Nick Cave, Perfume Genius, the 1975 and frequent collaborator Lana Del Rey for an album of vintage early-20th century covers.

Del Rey will take on Irving Berlin’s classic “Blue Skies,” most memorably performed by Ella Fitzgerald, while Florence + the Machine have contributed a version of Walter Kent’s “White Cliffs of Dover.” Nick Cave will tackle Edith Piaf’s signature tune “La Vie en rose,” alongside Beabadoobee’s cover of the 1932 standard “It’s Only a Paper Moon.”
