Fade to Black

On Monday 27th October, Sony Music will release Fade to Black, a collection of unforgettable music from iconic TV dramas. 

The new album features 23 themes from the very best of Nordic noir, US crime series and home-grown thrillers such as Breaking Bad, Luther, The Killing and True Detective. 

Artists featured include Massive Attack, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Mogwai and many more. Acclaimed author Ian Rankin has contributed sleeve notes, which perfectly sum up the importance and appeal of music as an integral part of crime drama;

“There are sounds here to spark the imagination, tunes filled with tension and intimations of horror, quickening the pulse or lulling the listener into a false sense of security. So sit back and let the darkness embrace you.”

Fade to Black features some of the biggest songs from the most popular TV series of all time, together on one album for the very first time.
