Labrinth, real name is Timothy Lee McKenzie, tweeted the news earlier today with a preview link to the virtual concert hosted on YouTube.

A description beneath the video on YouTube reads: “Welcome to the mini-mart. Our Emmy-nominated, series composer Labrinth takes the virtual stage on Monday, August 24 at 3PM EST to perform songs from the series live for the very first time. #euphoriaLIVE”

McKenzie scored the soundtrack for series one of Euphoria with the help of Sam Levinson.

Speaking about the score last year, the artist said: “My experience with Euphoria has made me a better musician. It was a dream come true to give wings and add magic to the different storylines. It was a collaborative effort among Sam Levinson, the crew and the cast – I only added texture to an already phenomenal show. I hope that anyone who listens to the music embraces feeling something.”
