“Girls” isn’t always the sunniest show, nor is fun.’s new contribution to its soundtrack. “Sight of the Sun” has frontman Nate Ruess doing a double-take on his life, to the flow of piano-led melodies and that bright chirp of his voice.
The track was originally penned for fun.’s Grammy-nominated album “Some Nights,” but a sample on the chorus couldn’t get cleared, according to Rolling Stone.
“I ended up rewriting the chorus and actually like it better than the sample now! We recorded most of this in Italy on a day off from tour and I just remember us eating an Italian feast at the studio and barely being able to communicate with the engineers, which was kind of cool because it eliminated all small talk and put the focus into the song.” Aren’t we fancy.
The HBO show’s creator and “Girls” actress Lena Dunham managed to pick it up for “Girls – Volume 1,” which is out tomorrow (Jan. 8).
