Genre-defying score – Terri Schwartz, IGN
Lakeshore Records is thrilled to debut a track off the long-awaited album release, The Walking Dead (Original Television Series Soundtrack), featuring score by Bear McCreary! Listen to “The Governor” now at IGN. This track signifies a turning point in the characters: “From this track onwards, the score would become increasingly seared by electronic textures. Our characters were never the same after they encountered this terrifying man, so I think it’s fitting his music had a permanent effect on the music of the show,” says McCreary.
Pre-order The Album: [Digital/CD/Vinyl]
The album features select score cues hand-picked by Bear from Seasons 1 through 7. Lakeshore and Sparks & Shadows will release the album digitally and on CD October 20, with the vinyl edition out on October 27!
The eighth season of The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, October 22 at 9PM ET on AMC.
