Lakeshore Records and Invada Records are set to release Stranger Things 3—Original Score from the Netflix Original Seriesfeaturing music by two time Grammy®-nominated and Emmy®-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein digitally on June 28. Half of the Austin band S U R V I V E, Dixon and Stein have been on board with the series since the first season creating strikingly dynamic music that has become a trademark of the show.
In Season 3 evil has not ended, it has evolved and the duo has evolved with it as they continue to explore new sonic territory and instrumentation, such as the pop sensibilities and melancholic undertones of 50’s doo wop, that go beyond the 80’s and 90’s R&B inflections of past seasons. They also return to familiar themes that are elevated by bold stylized reworkings that reflect the growth of the characters and intensity of the new storyline. Lakeshore Records and Invada Records will release the album digitally worldwide on June 28 with CD and vinyl versions forthcoming. Stranger Things 3 will debut on Netflix on July 4.
