Lakeshore Records has released The Stand—Original Series Soundtrack with music by Nathaniel Walcott and Mike Mogis—both members of the band Bright Eyes. The score ranges from intimate acoustic guitar-based themes to menacingly droning cues that encompass the wide range of moods in the series based on the book by Stephen King. Walcott and Mogis also collaborated with Durand Jones (of Durand Jones and the Indications) to create a new version of the song “Baby, Can You Dig Your Man”, the hit single for the character Larry Underwood (Jovan Adepo).
The Stand is available to stream now on CBS All Access, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays.
