The first trailer for La La Land was released Wednesday morning, and features a brand-new song from Ryan Gosling.

The track, called “City of Stars,” scores the film’s debut teaser, and is now available on iTunes and to stream on via TIDAL.

Featuring music by Justin Hurwitz and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the melancholy “City of Stars” finds Gosling crooning, “City of stars, are you shining just for me?/ City of stars, there’s so much that I can see.”

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle (an Academy Award nominee for Whiplash), La La Land stars Gosling as a jazz musician named Sebastian, who falls in love with an aspiring actress named Mia (played by Emma Stone). The modern-day musical is set to debut at the Venice Film Festival in August, La La Land arrives in theaters on Dec. 2, and features original music.

Listen to a preview of “City of Stars” below; watch the trailer above.
