Atlantic Records is proud to announce Aurora, the timeless debut album from Daisy Jones & The Six. The forthcoming 11-song LP from the titular band of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s beloved, New York Times bestselling 2019 novel arrives Friday, March 3rd on vinyl and across all DSPs (pre-order on vinyl here + pre-save here). Show-stopping lead single “Regret Me” is out everywhere today (buy/stream here).
Also on March 3rd, the groundbreaking limited series adaption ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ will premiere on Prime Video, with new episodes released every Friday through March 24th, starring Riley Keough, Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse, and more (watch teaser here).
The highly-anticipated series arrives via Amazon Studios and Reese Witherspoon’s media company Hello Sunshine, who optioned Reid’s work in 2018 – before Daisy Jones & The Six ever even hit bookshelves. Upon the novel’s release in early 2019, it received coveted recognition as a ‘Reese’s Book Club Pick.’
Today’s release – “Regret Me” – is a title that readers will recognize immediately as one of the many emotionally-charged hits that characters Daisy Jones (Keough) and Billy Dunne (Claflin) co-wrote in the 1970s for Aurora and released via fictional label Ellemar Records. Viewers of the show will similarly recognize the Aurora album artwork as having been lifted directly from the limited series.
Now, in 2023, Aurora has been brought to life by the cast, with Keough in her role as Jones and Claflin, Waterhouse, Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse and Sebastian Chacon rounding out The Six. The group became a band both on-screen and off – with some of the multi-hyphenates learning their character’s instrument for the very first time during production, and Keough and Claflin lending their vocals to each track.
Helmed by acclaimed GRAMMY®-winning songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Blake Mills (Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes, John Legend, Perfume Genius), Aurora and other music from throughout the show boasts co-writing credits that include some of today’s biggest names in music, such as: Marcus Mumford, Phoebe Bridgers and Jackson Browne, with additional production from renowned record producer Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird), alongside instrumentalists from Rilo Kiley, The Who, Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam, David Bowie, Elton John, Jeff Beck, The Wallflowers, and more.
