The Walking Dead
The LONG-AWAITED SCORE SOUNDTRACK FROM TV’S #1 SERIES THE WALKING DEAD, The First Soundtrack Featuring Original Television Series Score Composed By Bear McCreary.
“The apocalypse has a theme song in Bear McCreary’s haunting score for hit show The Walking Dead”
Lakeshore Records and Sparks & Shadows are proud to release the first soundtrack featuring EMMY® award-winning composer Bear McCreary’s (10 Cloverfield Lane, Rebel in the Rye) original score for AMC’s The Walking Dead (October 20, 2017).
For this long-awaited release, McCreary selected both his personal favorites from the first seven seasons, along with those most frequently requested by fans. He said, “narrowing down the highlights from seven years of work was a tremendous challenge.”
Premiering on Halloween 2010, in 120 countries simultaneously, The Walking Dead defied odds and became a cultural zeitgeist, practically overnight. A deserted car wreck. A policeman walking through it. The back of a little girl. He calls to her. At first she doesn’t respond. Then she turns around… revealing that all is not quite what it seems. The cop left with no choice shoots her, and as she falls, the tremolo string arpeggios of the “Main Title Theme” by McCreary crescendo, drawing millions of viewers into this harrowing world of The Walking Dead.
Album Produced by Joe Augustine & Bear McCreary
