A new digital EP will then be released every subsequent FRIDAY with music featured in that week’s upcoming episode.

“Vinyl: Music From The HBO Series -- Volume 1" offers a musical journey with new and previously released material -- all featured in the season premiere -- from an array of rising stars and legendary artists, including DAVID JOHANSEN, who revitalizes a pair of classics by the NEW YORK DOLLS with re-recordings exclusively for the series. Original highlights include “No Good,” the breakout rock single from ELEKTRA/ATLANTIC recording artist KALEO that was featured in the latest "Vinyl" trailer, and “Sugar Daddy (Theme From Vinyl),” the series’ main title and first new music from GRAMMY-nominated, newly signed ATLANTIC recording artist STURGILL SIMPSON.
Other highlights include the original song “Rotten Apple,” co-written by series co-star JAMES JAGGER along with dad MICK, LUIS FELBER and JAMES DUNSON, and performed by NASTY BITS, a band featured in the show that is fronted by JAMES JAGGER. There are also tracks from SODA MACHINE and VINTAGE TROUBLE’s TY TAYLOR – who has also been cast as the singing voice of the series’ character Lester Grimes. The soundtrack also captures the electric energy of NEW YORK CITY in the '70s with songs by OTIS REDDING, FOGHAT, JIMMY CASTOR BUNCH, DEE DEE WARWICK, EDGAR WINTER and THE METERS, among others.
