Music Inspired by the Film Roma arrives with songs from Beck, Billie Eilish, Patti Smith: Stream

After Alfonso Cuarón finished Roma, he asked some of his favorite artists to compose songs inspired by the film. Beck, Billie Eilish, Patti SmithDJ Shadow, Laura Marling, EL-PT-Bone Burnett, and a diverse group of international artists took up his offer, creating a companion piece to the 10-time Oscar nominee. Entitled Music Inspired by the Film Roma, you can now stream the entire thing over at NPR.

The 15-track album paints another intriguing layer to the acclaimed film, which tells the story of a young maid’s life in Mexico City in the early ‘70s. Beck offers “Tarantula” (feat. Feist), a soulful cover of the 1982 track from British electronica group Colourbox, while Billie Eilish contributes the dark electro cut “When I Was Older”. In addition to American artists, the record also includes songs from Rangel (of Mexican alt-rock group Café Tacvba), French-Cuban twins Ibeyi, British trip-hop act UNKLE, and Cuarón’s 15 year-old daughter Bu Cuarón.

Due out February 8th, Music Inspired by the Film Roma can be pre-ordered now. Listen to it in advance via NPR, and check out the album artwork and full tracklist below.

While Cuarón is winning awards for Roma  — like Best Director at the Golden Globes and Best Picture by the Chicago Film Critics Association — and racking up noms, the film may be getting snubbed from Oscar screenings. Due to a lack of proper distribution agreements with Netflix, AMC, Regal, and Cinemark won’t be including the Academy Award Best Picture nominee in their annual Oscar showcases.
