Listen to Sufjan Stevens’ Love Yourself’ from The Girl in the Mirror, Season 1, Ep. 1

Indie folk, baroque pop singer songwriter Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Love Yourself‘ was played on the soundtrack of the new Spanish drama The Girl in the Mirror on Netflix — The Girl in the Mirror, Season 1, Episode 1, “Niebla“.

The mellow, upbeat song was released in 2019 as a non-album single, along with ‘With My Whole Heart‘. The double release did not chart.

And, if you think you have heard the song before, the short reprise version of the track was also licensed for play on the hit Netflix series Bridgerton.

Stevens himself is one of America’s most prolific indie artists.

He first began releasing music in 1999 and, since then, has recorded and released 12 albums, three compilation albums, a live album, two soundtrack albums, 13 EPs, two mixed tapes, 16 singles as lead artist, and a whole slew of promotional singles, music videos and guest appearances on other artists’ releases.

His music is also regularly featured on hit TV series.

Most of Sufjan Stevens releases are on his own record label Asthmatic Kitty Records.

As for The Girl in the Mirror (aka Alma in Spanish), the supernatural thriller stars Álex Villazán, Pol Monen, Claudia Roset, Javier Morgade, Nil Cardoner, María Caballero, Milena Smit and Elena Irureta.

The series is currently streaming on Netflix.
