“The Stand” is Stephen King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.

Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel of the same name, CBS All Access’ “The Stand” will close with a new coda written by the famed author himself. The coda will be available to stream on CBS All Access on Thursday, February 11.

Says Walcott and Mogis: ” Working on a score for a show of the magnitude and scope of ‘The Stand’ was a daunting but exciting process, made all the more surreal by watching the events of 2020 unfold, as we holed up scoring a show about a pandemic during a pandemic. But ultimately ‘The Stand’ is about much more than a pandemic, and composing and recording this score was an invigorating challenge that required us to draw from a wide musical palette in order to support the stories of everything from a society in collapse, the mayhem and murder of “New Vegas”, and the hope surrounding fresh starts and new beginnings.”

Nathaniel Walcott and Mike Mogis’s musical collaboration dates back to the mid-90s in Lincoln, Nebraska, when Mogis was attending the University of Nebraska and Walcott was a high school student. Their partnership has continued to this day; together they have scored several films including 2014’s Fault In Our Stars and 2012’s Stuck in Love, and they are also members of the critically acclaimed band Bright Eyes. Individually, Walcott, operating out of his Los Angeles studio, has scored several films on his own including 2016’s Come and Find Me and 2017’s Midnight Sun, worked in the studio as a performer, arranger, orchestrater and composer for artists such as Mavis Staples, Angel Olsen, Phoebe Bridgers, U2, and jazz guitarist Jeff Parker, and toured extensively with the Red Hot Chili Peppers as their pianist and keyboard and trumpet player; and Mogis, working out of his Omaha studio Another Recording Company (ARC), has produced and mixed albums for a wide range of bands and artists including First Aid Kit, Jason Mraz, the Faint and Phoebe Bridgers.
