15 Jan New HBO Drama Series ‘Vinyl’, Theme Song By Sturgill Simpson!
Sturgill Simpson has written and recorded the theme song for new HBO drama series Vinyl and it’s called ‘Sugar Daddy‘. The show’s Music Supervisor, Randall Poster told Billboard “we cast a wide net” to find the right tone. “It had to serve a larger purpose than something that was just episodic. It’s not that it serves as a narrative. Sturgill just captured this spirit of rock and roll. It feels classic and contemporary.”
And here’s a little bit about the show itself :-
From Executive Producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path. The 10-episode first season debuts February 14th.
We can’t fucking wait.
