“Ask Me My Name” ends with the jazz stylings of Chet Baker—another new artist for Girls.

“This season, we’ve been venturing outside of our comfortable rock and pop genres,” says music supervisor Manish Raval, recalling the Patsy Cline and Charles Mingus tracks that made appearances in earlier episodes.

“We try to find some gems from the past that we feel add a fresh flavor to the show,” Raval explains. “We thought this track did just that. With its very simple vocal intro, we thought it felt really cool and intimate.” In other words, a perfect soundtrack for Hannah’s lonely walk home.
