Published Feb 24, 2016Public radio podcast geeks are in for a treat today, as Islands' Nick Thorburn has released the full soundtrack to the second season of Serial.
The This American Life spin-off smash is currently airing on a sort-of regular bi-weekly schedule, and hears host Sarah Koenig presenting her investigative reporting on the story of Bowe Bergdahl — an American soldier who walked off base in Afghanistan and was held captive by the Taliban for five years.
You can now listen to 23 instrumental compositions from Thorburn, each simply titled "Bowe" with a numbered identifier. "Bowe Two" should be instantly recognizable as the show's reworked and infectiously intriguing theme song.
Back in the fall of 2014, Thorburn released a soundtrack to Serial's first season. He's also currently prepping a pair of Islands albums titled Should I Remain Here At Sea? And Taste that are both due out on May 13. You'll find full details and Islands' upcoming tour dates over here.
Below, listen to the gripping, scene-setting soundtrack to Serial's second season courtesy of Thorburn.
