ADRIFT IN MIDDLE EARTH
September 1, 2022
Music from LOTR: THE RINGS OF POWER Available
THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER, or simply THE RINGS OF POWER, is an upcoming fantasy television series based on the novel The Lord of the Rings and its appendices by J. R. R. Tolkien. Developed by showrunners J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay for the streaming service Prime Video, the epic drama series is set thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the Second Age of Middle-earth, and follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-Earth.
Amazon Content Services released yesterday a new soundtrack album for series featuring the original music from the first season’s second episode (entitled “Adrift”) composed by Bear McCreary. The soundtrack is now available to stream on Amazon Music. Another album featuring the composer’s score from the first episode is expected to come out within the next day and more music will be released weekly as new episodes premiere over the next couple of weeks. A full soundtrack album featuring Howard Shore’s main title theme and selections of McCreary’s music from Season 1 (see image, left) was released earlier this month, also available from Amazon and other digital music outlets.
The series is scheduled to premiere on the streaming service Prime Video on September 2, 2022, with new episodes released on a weekly basis.
