Nine Perfect Strangers soundtrack: all the songs featured in the Nicole Kidman drama

From Bon Iver to Gladys Knight, here are all the tracks featured in Nine Perfect Strangers.

Jessica (Samara Weaving), Ben (Melvin Gregg), Frances (Melissa McCarthy), Lars (Luke Evans), Tony (Bobby Cannavale), Napoleon (Michael Shannon), Yao (Manny Jacinto), and Heather (Asher Keddie) in Nine Perfect Strangers

David E Kelley’s (Big Little Lies, The Undoing) brand new drama Nine Perfect Strangers landed on Hulu across the pond today, and while those hoping to catch it in the UK have to wait until Friday to watch the first three episodes, those who’ve seen the show will already know that it’s one big emotional rollercoaster.


Whenever there’s a scene in the series that makes you either laugh, cry or just feel slightly unsettled, it’s usually accompanied by a fitting piece of music that adds to suspense of Nicole Kidman’s character Masha watching her guests through various CCTV cameras, or the heartbreak of Michael Shannon’s Napoleon breaking down over a past family tragedy.

From Bon Iver and Gladys Knight to iconic pieces of classical music, the Nine Perfect Strangers soundtrack features a varied range of songs – and if you’re wanting to know more about the show’s track list or just want to see if you guessed a song correctly, then RadioTimes.com has you covered.

Read on for the full soundtrack for Nine Perfect Strangers – set to be updated each week.
