'Music Inspired By Roma' Album Track List Announced, Hear a New Release From Beck
Billie Eilish, Patti Smith and Laura Marling also feature on the album.
The track listing for Music Inspired By The Film Roma, an album based on Alfonso Cuarón’s award-winning film was announced by Sony Music today (Jan. 23). "Tarantula," Beck's reimagining of the song by 1980s English electro-band Colourbox, is also now available.
The album features artists from across the globe, including Beck, Billie Eilish, El-P, Ibeyi, Jessie Reyez, Laura Marling, Patti Smith and Unkle. Assembling a mosaic of sounds, Cuarón sought out some of his favorite musical artists to create songs that were inspired by Roma, which is a black-and-white film that follows the story of a young domestic worker for a middle-class family in Mexico City.
In anticipation for the release of the album on Feb. 8, which is available now for preordering, Beck released his take on “Tarantula." The solemn ballad features a 24-piece ensemble accompanying Beck’s captivating vocals.
Other noteworthy additions to the album are “Psycho” by Bu Cuarón, the director’s daughter; Laura Marling’s cover of Mary Hopkin’s “Those Were The Days,” and Jessie Reyez’s “Con El Viento.”
