[UPDATED] ‘Blade Runner 2049’ soundtrack released, Jóhann Jóhannsson departure explained
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters Friday, October 6, though its highly-anticipated soundtrack is out now, featuring original pieces from Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch.
The duo of Zimmer and Wallfisch were brought in as additional composers, before fully replacing Jóhann Jóhannsson, who was originally slated to write music for the film before parting ways in September. Speaking recently to Al-Arabiya, the film’s director Denis Villeneuve explained Jóhannsson’s departure by saying he needed to “go back to something closer to Vangelis,” the composer who handled the original 1982 film score.
The soundtrack also features tracks from Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Lauren Daigle.
