Westworld’s first season is over. Whether you fall into the shocked and delighted camp, or you saw every twist coming like the rest of us tinfoil hat Cassandras at The Verge, there is common ground to unite us: the show’s music was fantastic, and now it’s available online in its entirety in a variety of places.
WaterTower Music released a 34-track collection that includes the show’s original music from composer Ramin Djawadi, who you might remember from excellent HBO soundtracks like Game of Thrones. The real prize jewels, however, are the show’s covers of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” and Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.” Let us also not forget classics like The Rolling Stones’ “Paint it Black” or Nine Inch Nails’ “Something I Can Never Have.” And we must remember, too, the many covers of Radiohead.
You can stream the entire album on Spotify and Tidal, or find it at retailers like iTunes and Amazon Music. This playlist will have to tide us over until the show returns, likely in 2018.
What song would you like to get the player piano Westworld treatment? More Radiohead?
It’s more Radiohead, isn’t it?
