Perfume Genius Covers Dinah Washington’s “What a Difference a Day Makes”: Listen


Perfume Genius has shared his cover of “What a Difference a Day Makes”—originally written in Spanish by María Grever in 1934, and made popular in English by Dinah Washington in 1959—as part of Jack Antonoff’s The New Look soundtrack. Listen to his new take on the classic song below.

The New Look boasts a star-studded tracklist thanks to the Grammy-winning Jack Antonoff, who served as its soundtrack producer. In addition to the Ugly Season singer’s contribution, the TV show also has Lana Del Rey covering “Blue Skies,” the 1975 doing “Now Is the Hour” and Florence and the Machine taking on “White Cliffs of Dover.”

Todd A. Kessler’s historical drama series focuses on how designers revolutionized fashion during the Nazi occupation of Paris, with Ben Mendelsohn portraying as Christian Dior and Juliette Binoche playing Coco Chanel. The first three episodes of The New Look debuted on Apple TV+ last week.
