Created by Mad Men mastermind Matthew Weiner, Amazon’s latest original series The Romanoffs debuted earlier this Fall. Not only does the show boast a bevy of acting talent, but the soundtrack does as well. The most recent sixth episode, “Panorama”, featured a brand new track from Regina Spektor called “Birdsong”, which was created specifically for the show.
According to a press release, the collaboration between Spektor and Weiner came after the pair bonded at a pair of events, one honoring Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and producer Shonda Rhimes, and another being the American Academy of Poets’ 2016 Poetry and the Creative Mind. Their shared love of poetry, music, the creative process, and Paul Simon appearance all led to Spektor creating the song for Weiner’s program.
Listen to the quick, beautiful “Birdsong” below.
New episodes of The Romanoffs drop every Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
