Mondo’s Westworld Season 4 Vinyl Soundtrack Completes The Series Score Set

TV

Echoing the visual style of the soundtracks for the first three seasons of “Westworld,” the fourth season soundtrack comes with a die-cut outer jacket featuring striking, close-up imagery of an earthly creature. This time, it’s a housefly taking the spotlight, which makes sense when you consider their significance in the show’s fourth season. In fact, this is the perfect image to use for the final soundtrack, because if you look at the covers of the first three seasons — featuring a horse, a cow, and an eagle — they all have a fly hidden somewhere in the artwork. 

The “Westworld” season 4 soundtrack (available to pre-order for $60, including the slipcase) was conceived and art directed by Spencer Hickman, featuring original artwork by Greg Ruth and layout by Alan Hynes. Pressed on 140g colored vinyl (limited to an edition of 3,000 for Mondo’s exclusive release), the 3xLP album has all 34 tracks from the soundtrack that was previously made available from digital music retailers and streamers. That includes Ramin Djawadi’s incredible orchestral and piano adaptations of popular songs, such as “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish, “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, and “The Day the World Went Away” by Nine Inch Nails. And they all sound exquisite spinning on the record player. 

Here’s what co-creator, executive producer, and co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan had to say about their collaboration with Djawadi across four seasons of sci-fi television:

“As ‘Westworld’ came together, Lisa and I knew that we wanted to take enormous risks with the narrative of the show, tossing the audience into the deep end with our story. And we were able to take those risks, knowing that, in addition to our incredible cast, we were collaborating with Ramin Djawadi, an artist whose ability to translate even the most nuanced narrative idea into music is peerless.”

But fans will be particularly touched, albeit in a bittersweet way, by what Nolan notes in the liner notes insert included with the slipcase for all four seasons.
