10-time Oscar nominee Roma includes a soundtrack composed of numerous Spanish language radio hits from the early ’70s, music appropriate for the movie’s time period and setting. On February 8th, Sony Music Masterworks will release a companion album featuring reimaginings of these aforementioned tracks from contemporary artists. Dubbed Music Inspired by the Film Roma, the tracklist boasts contributions from Billie Eilish (“When I Was Older”), El-P, Patti Smith, DJ Shadow, Laura Marling, and more.

Beck is also present on the album, delivering his first new music of 2019. His offering is a cover of the 1982 track “Tarantula” from British electronica outfit Colourbox. Reimagining the minimalistic electronic looping of the original for the black-and-white film, Beck teamed with his father, David Richard Campbell, to create a stirring orchestral version. The slower, delicate rendition features backing vocals by a number of singers, including Feist and Alex Lilly.

Take a listen below.
