Dev Hynes (otherwise known as Blood Orange) has released his original soundtrack for Gia Coppola‘s new movie, Mainstream. Starring HERO 21 cover star Andrew Garfield alongside Maya Hawke and Nat Wolff, the plot follows Hawke’s character on her quest for internet stardom, enlisting a manic stranger (Garfield) to help her make viral videos.
“I love everything Dev makes,” Coppola said in a statement. “For Mainstream, I felt he really tapped into the many emotions you weave through when trying to coexist in this new digital world, yet still keeping it classic.”
The seventeen-track score follows Hynes’ previous collaboration with Coppola on her 2013 film Palo Alto. The musician also scored Luca Guadagnino’s HBO series We Are Who We Are last year, as well as Melina Matsouka’s debut 2019 film Queen & Slim.
