STRANGER THINGS Season 4 Soundtrack Released Today
Lakeshore Records announces the release of STRANGER THINGS 4—Original Score from the Netflix Original Series featuring music by two-time Grammy®-nominated and Emmy®-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. The epic 80-track score album is divided into two volumes that correspond with music composed for the two volumes of season four of the Netflix series. Whether they’re diving into the darker waters of season four with a more cryptic, goth tone alongside desolate textures for the scenes in Russia, or taking pains to preserve the warm feelings of nostalgia for a certain time and place, it’s clear that the music of Dixon and Stein is an integral, creatively cohesive element of the show.
Lakeshore Records and Invada Records have released the album digitally worldwide on July 1 with CD and vinyl versions forthcoming. STRANGER THINGS 4 Volume 2 has also debuted on July 1 on Netflix.
About STRANGER THINGS 4: It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
STRANGER THINGS was created by The Duffer Brothers and is produced by Monkey Massacre Productions & 21 Laps Entertainment.
Since its release in 2016, the global phenomenon “Stranger Things” has garnered over 65 award wins and 175 award nominations. The three-time Emmy Award Nominee for Best Drama is one of Netflix’s most-watched titles.
The prolific Texan musicians Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein are responsible for a body of work that’s synonymous with the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the supernatural everytown at the center of STRANGER THINGS. But as the small town becomes the unlikely site for a supernatural battle within the hit series, Dixon and Stein’s soundscapes, too, have expanded in lockstep. In the meantime, Stein and Dixon compose music for feature films, documentary series, and large-scale installations and they also play in the band S U R V I V E. Working in the lineage of predecessors like John Carpenter and contemporary peers like Oneohtrix Point Never, Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein use a lifelong obsession with synthesizers and electronic music as a vehicle for larger-than-life visions.
