News - Twin Peaks 2017 Theme


The theme tune for the new series of Twin Peaks, again composed by Angelo Badalamenti, got teased over the weekend...

Prolific composer Angelo Badalamenti is set to return to the town of Twin Peaks as the composer for the much-anticipated new series, set to premiere on Showtime next year. His Grammy Award-winning theme music from the original series, one of the most distinctive ever created for television by David Lynch, is very much in evidence in the new theme, teased over the weekend.

Badalamenti has written some of the most unique film scores of our time. He is widely known for his long-standing collaboration with Twin Peaks director David Lynch, which has produced a creative and inspired body of work. In addition to receiving the Grammy Award for the theme music of the original series, the “Soundtrack Album from Twin Peaks” achieved gold status in 25 countries. Badalamenti has also received three Emmy Award nominations for the original series, as well as Golden Globe nominations for films The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.

One of the most groundbreaking and influential television series of all time, the new Showtime series picks up twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The new Twin Peaks is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch.
