As music supervisor Manish Raval tells Billboard, that trend will continue in the HBO series' fourth season, which began January 11, with new tracks written by St. Vincent, Bleachers frontman and fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff and Family of the Year.

"I said to St. Vincent's people, 'We love [frontwoman] Annie [Clark] and she and [Girls creator and star] Lena [Dunham] are friends. Is there anything laying around?'" Raval remembers. "They sent us a demo of a song called 'Teenage Talk' that she hadn't released yet and it was amazing. Lena flipped for it."

Antonoff, who is Dunham's boyfriend, co-wrote his contribution, called "Entropy" with indie-electro artist Grimes, who performs the song on the soundtrack.

"It ends one of my favorite episodes ever -- a big party event leads us on a very melancholy note but there's something so awesomely fun and energetic about this track that really plays against the moment," says Raval of "Entropy."

2014 breakout act Family of the Year, whose single "Hero" played during the final scene of Best Picture contender Boyhood, as well as during the first season of Girls, contribute their new song "Carry Me," which Raval says will play during "a really big emotional scene."
