Lakeshore Records and Invada Records are set to release Dark: Cycle 1 (Original Music from the Netflix Original Series) featuring music by Australian experimental composer Ben Frost digitally on all platforms on June 28 with CD and vinyl versions forthcoming.
Frost’s repertoire includes solo and collaborative efforts that range from classical minimalism to punk rock and black metal. For the surreal German supernatural thriller, Frost’s dynamic and ominous orchestrations provide a striking backdrop.
Lakeshore Records will release the album in the Americas and Invada Records will release the album in the rest of the world digitally on June 28 with CD and vinyl versions forthcoming. Music to Season 2 will be released in July. See the track list and more below.
Dark Season Two is now streaming on Netflix.
Dark is set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. The story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in multiple time periods.
Says Frost: “Working in this strange and beautiful world of light and shadow has been a gift and an endless source of inspiration”.
