As anyone tapped into the digital grapevine knows, HBO’s new drama series The Idol has been a hot topic in the press of late. With TheWeeknd starring as the crazed self-help guru and cult leader Tedros and Lily-Rose Depp as the stardom-seeking lead, the show made its debut on the 4th of June.
Last week, The Weeknd released two tracks from the first episode of the series: the theme song, ‘The Lure’, as well as ‘World Class Sinner / I’m a Freak’. The theme song was written by The Weeknd and heavyweight producer Mike Dean and the second song was sung by Lily-Rose Depp and co-written by Abel and Asa Taccone.
Yesterday, The Weeknd released 3 new tracks from episode 2, which will feature alongside already released records like ‘Popular (with Playboi Carti & Madonna)’ and ‘Double Fantasy (with Future)’ on the official soundtrack album, The Idol, Vol. 1, which is slated for release on the 30th of June.
The complete soundtrack for Ubisoft’s Far Cry® 6 has hit the airwaves and is sure to not only delight gamers but music fans too. Scored by award-winning composer and producer Pedro Bromfman, the soundtrack is an emotional journey that takes place alongside revolution and guerilla warfare.
The game centres around the fictional island of Yara, which must be liberated from villain Antón Castillo (Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito) and his son Diego. Players take up the persona of Dani Rojas, a local military dropout, who tries to escape the island but ends up joining the revolutionary group Libertad.
With a collective play count of nearly 20 million streams, Pedro Bromfman has a trail of awards in his wake and also recently scored the feature film The Blackout.
Speaking of the album Bromfman explains: “Composing the music for Far Cry® 6 has been a tremendously rewarding experience! We set out to create a very modern score, drenched in lush soundscapes, driving percussion, processed organic instruments and a ton of synthesizers. We knew we needed to capture the soul of Yara, and its characters, by rooting the score on traditional Latin American and Caribbean music, while being completely free to experiment with contemporary sounds, elements and techniques, in hopes of creating something very fresh and unique.
