The first trailer for Prime Video’s next hit series is here to pump up the volume. The streaming service released the first full trailer for Daisy Jones and the Six, the live-action miniseries based on the Taylor Jenkins Reid novel of the same name. The trailer shows the best look yet at Daisy Jones (Riley Keough), Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) and those in their jobs in the titular 1970s rock band. Alongside the trailer, Prime Video revealed the first track from the soundtrack in the universe Daisy Jones, “Sorry.” It will be accompanied by Aurorathe band’s 11-track debut album, due out when the series premieres on March 3.
“Creating the music library for Daisy Jones and the Six was an experience I will never forget,” Aurora production manager Blake Mills said in a statement. “I am grateful that, among other things, it has given me the opportunity to collaborate with so many of my colleagues, as well as some of my heroes.”
“We finally have Aurora. A stunning, nostalgic, timeless album that captures the drama, pathos and yearning of the band’s highs and lows in one,” repeated Jenkins Reid. “A snapshot, intoxicating and dangerous. That sweet moment you know can’t last… Daisy Jones and the Six is real. And they are better than my wildest dreams.”
What’s Daisy Jones and the Six as regards?
In Daisy Jones & the Six, in 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were at the top of the world. Led by two charismatic lead singers – Daisy Jones (Keough) and Billy Dunne (Claflin) – the band had risen from obscurity to fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. This is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the peak of its powers.
The series also stars Suki Waterhouse as Karen, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie, Sebastian Chacon, as Warren, Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson, and Tom Wright as Teddy Price, with Timothy Olyphant guest starring as Rod Reyes.
Why is Daisy Jones and the Six so popular?
Reid’s novel, released in 2019, traces the rise and fall of his titular bond around oral history testimonies that take place decades later. The book won multiple awards upon its debut and has sold over a million copies.
“I had no idea what it was,” Keough said of the book in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “I didn’t google it or anything. I didn’t know it was based on a book. I didn’t know if it was a real band or not. All I knew is she says ‘it’s called Daisy Jones and the Six, and it’s about a band in the ’70s.’ And in my head I thought, “I know I’m playing Daisy.” I just knew. I don’t even know if one script was written, I didn’t know if they liked me, I hadn’t even spoken to them at that point. The only other time I’ve experienced that was when I met my husband and I knew within a week that I would have children with him and marry him.”
