Starting on March 3, we will be able to watch Amazon Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & The Six, a limited series based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s historical fiction book of the same name. The book follows “the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.” To write the book, Jenkins Reid was partly inspired by her experience growing up and by watching Fleetwood Mac performances on television.
The upcoming series stars Riley Keough as Daisy Jones and Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne. The cast also includes Camila Morrone, Suki Waterhouse, Nabiyah Be, Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse, Sebastian Chacon, and Tom Wright. Of course, a story about a band needs great music. Last week, a new trailer for the series was unveiled, and it featured the original song “Regret Me,” written by Blake Mills and Chris Weisman. The track is available on streaming services, and it will be part of a full album called Aurora, which comes out on March 3 as well.
In a special message, Taylor stated, “dear listener, in 2016, I had an idea for a story about an explosive 70s rock band. I named that band Daisy Jones & The Six. For years, readers have asked me what the band sounds like. Well, now you are getting an answer. Aurora exists, and it is a stunning, nostalgic, timeless album. Daisy Jones & The Six are real, and they’re better than my wildest dreams.”
Undoubtedly, “Regret Me” is the perfect song to promote the ten-episode series. The track encapsulates the turmoil of Daisy and Billy’s relationship, and Riley and Sam sound amazing in it. With all its 70s glory, “Regret Me” is sure to become a hit amongst fans of the book, and it will definitely make people watch the series. If you’re a fan of Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, or Richard & Linda Thompson, you’re going to love Daisy Jones & The Six.
We can’t wait to watch the series and listen to Aurora in full. In the meantime, make sure to watch the trailer for Daisy Jones & The Six and stream “Regret Me.” You can also pre-order Aurora on vinyl and CD here.

Richard and Linda Thompson indeed. So glad to see someone else make that connection. After watching the first 3 episodes and listening to “Aurora”today, I immediately thought of the Thompsons. Delaney and Bonnie too.
