WATERTOWER MUSIC TO RELEASE 34 SONG ALBUM “WESTWORLD: SEASON 1 (MUSIC FROM THE HBO SERIES)”
WaterTower Music has released the full soundtrack of music from “Westworld,” the wildly popular new HBO series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. “WESTWORLD: Season 1 (Music from the HBO Series),” a 34-song collection that features the most poignant musical moments from the ten-episode first season, is now available on iTunes.
The collection includes composer Ramin Djawadi’s (“Game of Thrones,” “Iron Man,” “Person of Interest”) WESTWORLD theme, original compositions, and his celebrated arrangements of well known songs including “Back To Black” (originally performed by Amy Winehouse), “Something I Can Never Have” (originally performed by Nine Inch Nails), “Black Hole Sun” (originally performed by Soundgarden), “Paint It, Black” (originally performed by The Rolling Stones) “A Forest” (originally performed by The Cure) and “No Surprises” (originally performed by Radiohead), among others.
“As ‘Westworld’ came together, Lisa and I knew that we wanted to take enormous risks with the narrative of the show, tossing the audience into the deep end with our story,” explains Executive Producer Jonathan Nolan. “And we were able to take those risks, knowing that, in addition to our incredible cast, we were collaborating with Ramin Djawadi, an artist whose ability to translate even the most nuanced narrative idea into music is peerless.”
“It’s been a true pleasure to see fans of WESTWORLD connect with both the piano covers and original compositions used in the series,” says Djawadi. “I’m thrilled that they will be able to continue their experience with the release of the soundtrack.”
“Ramin is a fiercely gifted creative partner in every imaginable way,” noted WaterTower Music head Jason Linn. “His ability to consistently thrill us is second to none. We could not be more excited about this next chapter in our many collaborations together.”
