The full soundtrack list for The Crown season five has been released – check it out below.
Other roles have also been recast as the show’s events jump forward to the 1990s, including Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.
A synopsis for the season reads: “As Queen Elizabeth II approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession, she reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television and the twilight of the British Empire.
“Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home.”
The main theme for The Crown is by Hans Zimmer, while composer Martin Phipps returns from past seasons to score the soundtrack in season five.
