Published Jul 27, 2016If you've spent the last while constantly Googling "Stranger Things soundtrack," we have good news for you. After emerging as one of the best new Netflix series going, the team behind Stranger Things has revealed that a soundtrack for the show is officially in the works.
The news arrived today (July 27) via the show's official Facebook page, where the Hawkins AV Club announced the Stranger Things soundtrack is "coming soon."
As previously reported, the synth-fuelled score to Stranger Things was cosmically supplied by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin synth unit S U R V I V E. And while there was also a pile of '80s-appropriate songs from groups like New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen and Peter Gabriel, we have our fingers crossed super hard that the upcoming soundtrack release is of the actual original score and not just an assemblage of decades-old tracks used in the show.
As we also recently reported, S U R V I V E have an album of their own coming out. Called RR7349, it's set to arrive on September 30 via Relapse Records.
For a taste, you can hear album opener "A.H.B." below, where you'll also find an amazing fan-assembled extended version of the main theme from Stranger Things. As an extra bonus, check out a video comparing all the show's spot-on '70s/'80s references at the bottom of the page.
