Star Trek DISCOVERY soundtrack coming out Dec 15
December 5, 2017
Lakeshore Records will be releasing the soundtrack to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY – available digitally on Friday, December 15. The album features score by EMMY® Award-winning composer Jeff Russo (FARGO, LEGION, LUCIFER ). The release of the series’ original score will be available digitally on Friday, Dec. 15, with pre-sales beginning Friday, Dec. 8. The soundtrack will be available as a CD and vinyl album in early 2018.
“Grand, glorious, hopeful, heartbreaking, intimate, bittersweet, tense, soaring, surprising. Over 51 years, in its many iterations, there’s been no shortage of adjectives to describe the music of STAR TREK,” said DISCOVERY co-creator Alex Kurtzman.
“On the other hand, the list of composers capable of capturing them all is short, and this is where Jeff Russo comes in. Jeff manages to hold each note in beautiful balance, evoking the nostalgia of Alexander Courage’s original theme while scoring DISCOVERY with his own unique ear and heart. We’re lucky to have him, and we hope you’ll love his music as much as we do.”
Added Russo, “The producers and I talked a lot about telling this story from an emotional point of view. Relationships play a big role in this incarnation of the series, so trying to be true to that and create themes that connect characters is important.”
