BTS, Taylor Swift, and more artists are getting the 1800s-style orchestral treatment. On Monday, Netflix announced the list of songs — including ones by Billie Eilish, Sia, and Nick Jonas — set to receive orchestral covers on Bridgerton Season Three’s Part One.

For the new season, Bridgerton will feature Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey’s “Snow on the Beach” covered by the Atwood Quartet, Nick Jonas’ “Jealous” covered by Shimmer, and Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” and BTS’ “Dynamite,” covered by Vitamin String Quartet.

Episode One will feature a cover of Gayle’s “Abcdefu,” Episode Three will include Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” and Episode Four will include an Archer Marsh cover of Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything.”

“I start to try to think of songs from the past that could maybe work for this and then also current hits that could possibly make sense,” music supervisor Justin Kamps told Netflix’s Tudum.

“It’s really down to the script and then the themes,” Kamps added. “And sometimes initially it’s about what matches the choreography and then later it’s about what matches the scene and the emotion.”

Past seasons of the show featured covers of hits by Madonna, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, and Alanis Morissette.

The new season of Bridgerton will feature eight episodes, split into two parts. The first four episodes premiere on May 16, while the second part will arrive on June 13.


Netflix dropped the season’s trailer last month, introducing a new friendship between Penelope and Colin. In the trailer, the characters, portrayed by Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton, team up in an effort to help Penelope find a husband and move out of her home.

Season Three is the first from the series to stray from Julia Quinn’s novels, as the first two seasons focused on the same Bridgerton characters as the first two books. Along with Coughlan and Newton, Jonathan Bailey, Simone Ashley, Claudia Jessie, Emma Naomi, and more round out the cast.
