Daisy Jones & the Six Author Praises Electric Duet, Embraces Show’s Different Tracklist as Gift

Daisy Jones & the Six is a Prime Video drama series based on a novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid. In a recent interview with TVLine, Reid discussed the show’s standout moment, which takes place in the third episode when the two lead singers of the fictional band come together to record their first duet, “Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)”. Reid praised the scene for its magic and electricity, admitting that it surpassed anything she had written in the book.

The scene also highlights a significant departure from the novel, as the lyrics to the song are different from what’s referenced in the book’s oral history. Additionally, the show’s tracklist for the band’s hit album, Aurora, features new tunes that aren’t mentioned in Reid’s story. Grammy Award winner Blake Mills wrote or co-wrote and produced 25 original songs for the series, enlisting the help of musicians/songwriters Marcus Mumford, Phoebe Bridgers, Jackson Browne, and Taylor Goldsmith, among others, to co-write the catchy hits, many of which are performed by Riley Keough and Sam Claflin.

Reid shared that she was excited about the opportunity to write lyrics for the book, but they didn’t function as songs. Instead, they acted as a puzzle for readers to solve, with clues hidden within the lyrics. She felt that the show’s soundtrack was a gift and welcomed the idea of having the talented musicians write their own songs, as they would do it better than she could.

Co-showrunner Scott Neustadter explained that the tracks still served the same purpose as they did in the novel, even if the words were different. The songs were telling the story in most of the scenes, so they had to work in the exact same way as they did in the book.

For Reid, hearing the fictional band come to life four years after her book was first published was incredible, especially as people had asked her for a long time what they sounded like, and she had no idea. She particularly enjoyed “Aurora,” one of her favorites, and the way it functioned within the story.
