‘Succession’s Jeremy Sturdy channels Kendall Roy to cowl Billy Joel’s ‘Honesty’
In the end: From the pipes that introduced you “L to the OG” comes a top-notch unhappy boy cowl of Billy Joel’s “Honesty.”
That is proper, Succession stans. Composer Nicholas Britell dropped the official soundtrack for Season Three of the HBO’s darkish satirical dramedy. The soundtrack, which incorporates 21 songs, contains a pleasant array of Italian-influenced string numbers and stress-inducing piano bangers. However most significantly, it offers followers what we have so desperately been craving: A full-length Kendall Roy cowl of Joel’s emotional tune about tenderness, truthfulness, and loneliness.
In Season 3, Episode 7, “Too A lot Birthday,” Kendall (Jeremy Sturdy) takes the stage and grabs the mic forward of his elaborate birthday bash. He belts lower than a minute of “Honesty” — with each intention of singing it to his visitors later that night time — however sadly we by no means get the complete efficiency. Till now.
Seize your gold chain, toss in your turtleneck, or wrap your self in your favourite consolation blanket and zone out to the musical stylings of Sturdy as Kendall singing Billy Joel. Let it crush you. It is OK. All of us deserve one tiny Succession-fueled sob, as a deal with.
And in all honesty, if this does not earn Ken a kiss from daddy, I do not know what is going to.
