Miya Folick shared her bold and fun-loving anthem, “What We Wanna,” which is the iconic lead single from the official soundtrack to The Buccaneers — the upcoming Apple Original drama series, premiering globally on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on November 8th. The soundtrack, which was produced by Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, will be released on November 8th via Interscope in partnership with Apple TV+ and features a star-studded all-female track list that includes acclaimed singer/songwriters like Gracie Abrams and Sharon Van Etten.

A perfect introduction to The Buccaneers soundtrack, “What We Wanna,” fully encapsulates the show’s mood of feisty defiance, emerging as a shiny piece of off-kilter pop lit up in lush synth and effervescent gang vocals. As she flaunts her undeniable vocal command, Folick matches the track’s bouncy strut with lyrics that serve as a statement of intent (“We’re big girls, we’re big drama/We do what we want yeah we do what we wanna”). And while the song marks a departure from the intense introspection of her widely lauded sophomore album Roach, it ultimately embodies the strong-minded sensibilities Folick brings to all of her music. The Buccaneers is not Folick’s first foray into writing for Film and TV. She has also scored the film, Cora Bora, which was directed by Hannah Utt and was the first feature to star Meg Stalter (“Hacks”) and recently had her 2018 track, “Freak Out,” in the viral show Heartstopper.
