Hailee Steinfeld is giving fans a taste of the moody soundtrack to her upcoming Apple TV+ series, “Dickinson”.
According to the Oscar-nominated actress, the new single, which hears Steinfeld singing about life after death, mirrors her upcoming role as poet Emily Dickinson perfectly.
“This record has themes reflective of Emily Dickinson’s desires,” Steinfeld told Apple Music’s Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. “There’s a line in the song that says ‘immortality is bliss’ and it reminded me a lot of Emily Dickinson’s poems. She lived during a time where women were forbidden from voicing their opinions, so the majority of her work wasn’t published until after she died. The inability to express herself fully in life, but to be so revered beyond her death…Her writing continues to be remembered and relevant to this day, making her immortal.”
The series, despite taking place in the 1890s, will feature music “driven by contemporary and urban music.”
Seinfeld later teased more new music, including a new album, which will be released next year.
“Dickinson” will premiere Nov. 1 on Apple’s new streaming service.
