Blood Hive (Original Score From The Showtime Series Yellowjackets) Releases Digitally!

“The leaders of ’90s bands Shudder to Think and That Dog have gone spooky, to great end, with music that’s helped turn the Showtime series into a phenomenon.” – Variety⁠

Lakeshore Records has released Blood Hive—Original Score from the Showtime Series, Yellowjackets featuring music by Craig Wedren, best known as the frontman for seminal post-hardcore band Shudder to Think, and Anna Waronker of indie pop darlings that dog., who scored most of the show’s episodes; and composer Theodore Shapiro who composed the music for the show’s pilot.

Yellowstone Season 4: Brian Tyler and Breton Vivian Release Their Score To The No. 1 Cable TV Series!

Stellar composer duo Brian Tyler (F9: The Fast Saga, Crazy Rich Asians) and Breton Vivian (Five Feet Apart) release their Yellowstone Season 4–Original Series Soundtrack — available now digitally via Lakeshore Records!  See the album tracklist and listening links below.

Says Tyler: “Yellowstone is one of the most incredible artistic endeavors of my life, and Taylor Sheridan’s visionary series is a canvas for composing some of my most emotionally resonant music. The music has evolved along with the narrative of the series in Season 4 with even greater heartbreak, tension, drama, and power. I have worked again with Breton Vivian to create atmospheric and thematic music that hopefully immerses the listener in a world of passion, tragedy, and hope with the natural tones of orchestra, fiddle, and instruments from around the world.”

The fourth season of Paramount Network’s hit series starring Kevin Costner premiered on November 7 with a two-hour special that smashed cable TV ratings records, making it the No. 1 most-watched cable TV show, according to Nielsen ratings!
