The band might not actually be real, but the Daisy Jones & the Six album will make you think otherwise.
At long last, the beloved book-turned-series has arrived on Prime Video as of Friday, March 3, and fans are looking forward to getting lost in the world of 1970s rock 'n roll, from those groovy Daisy Jones & The Six outfits to the romantic melodrama that mirrors the real-life heartbreaks of Fleetwood Mac.
And the fact that there's an actual album you can jam out to, too? Well, that just cranks things up to 11. Here's where to listen to the Daisy Jones & The Six album IRL.
What to know about the 'Daisy Jones & the Six' album:
Throughout the new series, you'll hear songs from the band's album, Aurora. And, yes, the show's cast, including lead actors Riley Keough and Sam Claflin, are actually the ones singing and playing the instruments.
Initially, everyone had different musical abilities upon signing up for the project, but the delay from the COVID pandemic gave the actors even more time to hone their craft. After a year and a half of extensive training, they seemingly became a band.
"I’m standing in the audience area, and they come through the door and somebody says, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, Daisy Jones & The Six.’ They walk past me, and they’re in costume and they were in character and they’ve got their instruments and I just went ‘Oh my god, they’re real," author Taylor Jenkins Reid told Deadline.
The 11 songs from the Aurora album clock in at 44 minutes and are as follows:
- "Let Me Down Easy"
- "Kill You To Try"
- "Two Against Three"
- "Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)"
- "Regret Me"
- "You Were Gone"
- "More Fun To Miss"
- "The River"
- "No Words"
Fans will fall for the folk and rock undertones, and, more than a few times, we get some Beatles vibes from Billy Dunne (Claflin). Keough's Daisy hits some high octaves and perfectly complements Billy's voice.
Where to find the 'Daisy Jones & the Six' album:
American musician-composer Blake Mills led the production of the band’s album and the direction of the music in the series. Considering our Daisy, Riley Keough (yes, Elvis' granddaughter), didn't have singing experience prior to starting the project, it's safe to say that she and the rest of the fictional band came a long way.
“We met once, and then we walked into this room and had to sing ‘Aurora’ together, which is a pretty hard song to sing,” Keough told Variety about meeting Claflin. “They wanted us to work on our singing chemistry very early on, from day one. So we just kind of met and then were put face-to-face and they were like, ‘Sing at each other!"
Good luck not listening to these tracks on repeat!
Daisy Jones & the Six premiered on Friday, March 3, on Prime Video. Episodes will drop weekly on Fridays until March 24.
