Feel Something: 'Euphoria' Score Set For Release This Week

Still humming the music from HBO’s Euphoria? The score for HBO’s edgy young adult series will be released October 4.

It will be released by Milan Records, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks. The album features score music from the first season of the show. It is Labrinth’s first-ever project as lead composer.

HBO says, “Written and recorded in close collaboration with the show’s writer Sam Levinson, his original compositions feature prominently throughout the series as a sonic companion to the show’s angst-driven narrative.  The resulting 26-track collection is a genre-blending mix of gospel, soul and electronic influences, indicative both of Labrinth’s imitable style as well as the show’s deeply moving storyline.”

“My experience with Euphoria has made me a better musician. It was a dream come true to give wings and add magic to the different storylines. It was a collaborative effort among Sam Levinson, the crew and the cast – I only added texture to an already phenomenal show. I hope that anyone who listens to the music embraces feeling something,” says Labrinth.

An American adaptation of the Israeli series of the same name, Euphoria follows a group of high school students as they navigate love and friendships in a world of drugs, sex, trauma and social media.  Zendaya leads the cast, which also stars Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.

The series is from Sam Levinson and produced by A24. Executive producers are Drake, Future the Prince, Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokadi, Gary Lennon, Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin.

Euphoria returns to HBO for Season 2 in 2020.
