The official soundtrack for Netflix’s Damien Chazelle-produced series The Eddy has been released.
The Eddy continues Chazelle’s music-focused productions that started with Whiplash in 2014, followed by the 2016 Oscar-winning hit, La La Land. In a way, Chazelle focuses on his penchant for jazz more exclusively than ever in his new Netflix series, as the show follows a former musician running a failing jazz club in Paris. Unsurprisingly, the show’s soundtrack is loaded with original jazz cuts from Glen Ballard and Randy Kerber alongside key features from contemporary artists such as St Vincent and Jorja Smith.
The original tracks are sung by actors Amandla Stenberg and Joanna Kulig, who also lead The Eddy’s house band. André Holland heads the cast as club owner Elliot Udo, whilst Stenberg plays his daughter who’s recently arrived in France from America. Mix in a best friend that owes money to gangsters—played by Tahar Rahim—and the unfortunate jazz musician has his hands full.
The Eddy’s first season is now streaming on Netflix. Listen to its soundtrack here:
