Lakeshore Records Releases STAR TREK: PICARD Season 3 Soundtrack 

Lakeshore Records has released the original digital series soundtrack to STAR TREK: PICARD SEASON 3 today, with music by Stephen Barton and Frederik Wiedmann.  Both composers are new to the series for this season and bring a fresh perspective to the music while seamlessly blending in classic themes creating a thrilling backdrop to the resoundingly acclaimed third season of the series. 

STAR TREK: PICARD features Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, and follows this iconic character into the next chapter of his life. LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan and Michelle Hurd star alongside Patrick Stewart in the third and final season of the hit Paramount+ original series.

“The score to Season 3 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ is a throwback to the classic theatrical scores by Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner,” says Terry Matalas, the season three showrunner. “When I first sat down with Stephen, we knew that we wanted each episode to have that same cinematic feeling but include new exciting themes for our heroes as well — like the Titan suite which serves as the overture for the season. What Stephen and Freddie have delivered here is an emotional orchestral masterpiece that sweeps us into the final frontier once again!”

Notes Barton: “Picard Season 3 is a love letter to one of the great legacies in film and television music, and we are all incredibly proud to present it here. The ‘Titan’ and ‘Family’ themes, and the great canon of musical ideas from the legends of Trek music of the last three decades are all explored in this score. It is a musical story about legacy, about family, and about mixing the best of the Next Generation and the next Next Generation; and we hope it takes you on an epic journey.”

Wiedmann adds: “I couldn’t be more excited about this release. Working on this labor of love with all involved has been an absolute privilege. I hope the fans will enjoy the elements of nostalgia as well as new Trek music on this massive album. It was a dream come true to record our phenomenal LA orchestra for these episodes, bringing to life a huge legacy of Star Trek themes, as well as new ones.“
