PEACEMAKER Soundtrack Now Available From WaterTower Music

Today, Troll Court/Watertower Music have released the soundtrack to the popular HBO Max series PEACEMAKER, which explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James Gunn’s 2021 film THE SUICIDE SQUAD – a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

The PEACEMAKER Soundtrack from the HBO® Max Original Series features the music of two award-winning composers: Clint Mansell  and Kevin Kiner. Golden Globe and Grammy-nominated film composer Clint Mansell (BLACK SWAN, THE FOUNTAIN) has written scores for dozens of films (both shorts and features), TV series, and video games,  and has collaborated extensively with filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. Annie Award-winning composer Kevin Kiner (NARCOS: MEXICO, JANE THE VIRGIN, STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS and REBELS) has been honored with multiple Emmy® and other Annie Nominations, and won 13 BMI Film & TV Awards, making him one of the most versatile and sought-after composers in Hollywood. Together, Mansell and Kiner have also scored DC’s TITANS and DOOM PATROL.

“PEACEMAKER taught us that there’s no wrong time to rock,” said the composers. “Tapping into the heart of 80’s hair metal made it so that the score is simultaneously earnest and ridiculous, stylized and unhinged, uncool and yet transcendently cool. It’s also unabashedly melodic with an enthusiasm and sincerity we too were infected with when we immersed ourselves in the mix tapes James Gunn sent us.”

The soundtrack also includes two songs: “Home Sweet Home (Piano Version),” a rendition of the 80’s classic performed on piano by John Cena as seen in Peacemaker, and “Pumped Up Kicks (feat. Ralph Saenz)” by John Murphy (THE SUICIDE SQUAD, KICK ASS), which also appeared on the show. (The popular opening song, “Do Ya Wanna Taste It?” performed by Wig Wam can be found on the band’s 2010 album, “Non Stop Rock’n Roll.”)

The PEACEMAKER soundtrack is now available and features eight tracks from the show. The digital album can be streamed or purchased from these links.
