The Twin Peaks revival series premiered last night (May 21) with a new-look title sequence.
The intro features the classic title music by composer Angelo Badalamenti, opening with a shot of Laura Palmer before showing cinematic footage of waterfalls and the red curtains/black and white tiles of the Black Lodge. Watch below.
Meanwhile, the original soundtracks for Twin Peaks and its spin-off film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me have been reissued on vinyl. Rhino Records has re-released the two soundtracks to mark the show’s return.
The original TV series was scored by composer Angelo Badalamenti, with added production and lyrics from Lynch as well as vocal contributions from Julee Cruise. The ‘Twin Peaks Theme’ won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance in 1991. The soundtrack to Fire Walk With Me, meanwhile, saw Badalamenti and Lynch work together again on the score.
Both soundtracks are reissued on 180-gram vinyl. See the tracklisting for both soundtracks below.
