For all its divisiveness and controversy, it’s easy to forget how well-made “Girls” is and what a wonderful job the creative team does in curating music for the show. It’s a show that can go from using a piece of unabashed pop like Icona Pop’s “I Love It” last season to using a Kurt Vile track for its third season premiere. The HBO series will follow-up last year’s soundtrack release with a second installment that includes some new tracks by some great artists.

For all its divisiveness and controversy, it’s easy to forget how well-made “Girls” is and what a wonderful job the creative team does in curating music for the show. It’s a show that can go from using a piece of unabashed pop like Icona Pop’s “I Love It” last season to using a Kurt Vile track for its third season premiere. The HBO series will follow-up last year’s soundtrack release with a second installment that includes some new tracks by some great artists.

EW has posted the cover art for “Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do...” which uses the same poster artwork that can be seen on subway station walls advertising the new season, along with the tracklisting. While there is some previously released material on the disc -- Father John Misty, Vampire Weekend and Beck, among others -- what’s most exciting are the new tracks that are exclusive to the soundtrack collection which include new offerings from Miguel, Michael Penn and former Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, as well as remixes of Zero DeZire and Cat Power tracks.

Check out the tracklisting and cover art below, along with a stream of the Lewis track, which was heard Sunday night and produced by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij. "Girls Vol. 2" hits stores on February 11th.
