Lily Allen, Beck and Jenny Lewis are among the artists who have penned music for the new series of 'Girls'.

The HBO scripted comedy written by Lena Dunham, who also stars in the show, will be broadcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic on January 20, with a double bill of episodes, a week after it begins in the US.

Speaking to Radio.com about this season's soundtrack, music supervisor Manish Raval said: ''It's the same sound, same vibe, but one thing that's different this season is we've had the luxury of getting people to contribute brand new songs for us.

''We had Miguel write us a new song. We have a new one by Jenny Lewis. We have a brand new Lily Allen track. A brand new Christina Perri track.

''We were able to get our hands on a brand new Beck song, which he just finished for his new record and gave to us to put on the show before the release of his album.''

Past tracks featured on the show have included Icona Pop's 'I Don't Care', songs by Belle & Sebastian, Robyn, Fleet Foxes, Sleigh Bells, Santigold, Angel Haze, Azealia Banks and Solange.

The new music will feature across the 12 half-hour episodes which air at 10pm every night in the UK.

Manish continued: ''We were in a fortunate position where we were able to get access to a lot of great songwriters and bands to give us new material or write us new material for the show. A lot of that stuff will appear on the soundtrack, which we're working on right now.''
