Nick Cave has shared a cover of Édith Piaf’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ from Jack Antonoff‘s soundtrack to The New Look – listen below.

The Bad Seeds frontman’s heartfelt rendition of the song was produced by Antonoff for the new Todd A. Kessler-created historical drama, which premiered on Apple TV+ on February 14.

Released as a single in 1947, the original version of ‘La Vie En Rose’ is the signature track of French singer Piaf. The lyrics express the happiness of finding true love, appealing to people who had faced difficulties throughout World War II.

Over 10 episodes, The New Look tells “the shocking story of how fashion icon Christian Dior and his contemporaries, including Coco Chanel, Pierre Balmain and Cristóbal Balenciaga, navigated the horrors of World War II and launched modern fashion”.

The 10-song soundtrack to the series will feature covers of early to mid-20th-century tracks by contemporary artists.

Last month saw Florence + The Machine share their version of ‘White Cliffs Of Dover’ from the collection before The 1975 released their take on ‘Now Is The Hour’ and Lana Del Rey dropped her cover of Irving Berlin’s ‘Blue Skies’.

Antonoff also recorded covers by Beabadoobee, Perfume Genius and his band Bleachers for the soundtrack. The record will be the first release from Antonoff’s new label Shadow Of The City, which is an imprint of Dirty Hit. It is scheduled to arrive on March 8.
