On HBO’s Girls, music is the unseen fifth member of the ensemble, and the accompanying cuts are often just as au courant as the lead characters. So it’s not surprising that Girls – Volume 1: Music From The HBO Original Series (out January 8) includes new tracks from Santigold (“Girls”), fun. (“Sight Of The Sun”) and Tegan & Sara (“Fool To Cry”). The compilation also has energetic tracks from Robyn, Icona Pop and Oh Land.

Santi’s title track is the first of the new songs to premiere, and you can stream it below. It’s a tightly-wound banger that finds the pop vet rapping more than singing. Hear it below and check out the soundtrack’s full tracklist.
