Stranger Things 4: Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein Release Their Epic Score Soundtrack!

Dixon’s and Stein’s score melts into the scenes so that the viewers become wholly immersed in the Stranger Things universe, pulling our strings and manipulating our emotions. – Collider

“Tapping into an eerie world of synthesizers and vaguely ‘80s tones, the pair’s contributions to the Netflix original have undoubtedly helped shaped Stranger Things’ unique world and international success.” – Consequence of Sound

 

Lakeshore Records and Invada Records have released 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 will release the album digitally worldwide on July 1 with CD and vinyl versions forthcoming. Created by The Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 will debut on Netflix on July 1.
