The Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack highlights the entrancing, ethereal, and enigmatic original score composed by Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer [Inception, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, The Lion King] and Golden Globe & Emmy nominee Benjamin Wallfisch [It, Hidden Figures, Annabelle: Creation]. Original and classic compositions round out this sci-fi noir masterpiece. Finally, the album concludes with an original song by GRAMMY Award nominee, Lauren Daigle.
Over a backdrop of cyber-infused soul production, it delivers a hypnotic and haunting performance.

Together, Zimmer and Wallfisch sought to continue the incredible musical legacy of the original 1982 Blade Runner by Vangelis, while imparting a piece of themselves upon the score. In order to do so, they implemented vintage synths such as 'the star of the score' a Yamaha CS80 from the late seventies as well as modern technological innovations, yielding a rich sonic palette wholly cognizant of this world and the vision of director Denis Villeneuve.

'First of all, I realized that Denis is a director who has a vision; he has a voice,' says Zimmer. 'Remember, I've done a lot of movies with Ridley Scott. So, it was important that this was an autonomous piece of work. Let's just be honest. Ridley is a hard act to follow-as is Vangelis. While Ben was four-years-old, I had actually experienced all of this,' he laughs. 'We watched and literally, as we stopped watching, we decided on the palette. We decided this wasn't going to be an orchestral thing. The story spoke to us.'

'We all know what Blade Runner feels like and what that experience is to watch this incredible masterpiece,' adds Wallfisch. The first question we asked ourselves was, 'How can we reinvent and make it fresh and new, but still be in that world?' The mission from the beginning was this idea of finding the heart of the film-what is its soul? When you discover the simplest possible theme, it sums up humanity almost. I feel like that's what we were all striving for towards the beginning of the process.'

In a feature detailing the film's Oscar potential, Variety highlighted the aural balance that Zimmer and Wallfisch achieve writing, 'Zimmer and Wallfisch's score maintains proper reverence for and distance from Vangelis' iconic original work.'
