When the tracklist for the Baby Driver soundtrack was revealed, one thing that caught our attention was the inclusion of new music from Sky Ferreira. The singer/model/actress has a part in the movie as Baby’s mom, but it’s almost more exciting the hear her fresh material. Now, her contribution to the OST has been revealed, and it turns out it’s a cover of The Commodores‘ classic “Easy”.

Though the track may not be original, it is the first solo song we’ve gotten from Ferreira in quite some time. Her take on “Easy” is, perhaps unsurprisingly, smoky and sultry. It burns slow like candle, romantic even as it gives the feeling of discontentment. Take a listen below via the album’s full soundtrack.

Last we heard, Ferreira’s long-awaited sophomore effort was called Masochism, though that well could have changed in the year since it was meant to be released. As for the Baby Driver soundtrack, that’s out today and features the previous single featuring Danger Mouse, Big Boi, and Run the Jewels “Chase Me”.
