Milan Records working with composer Brian Reitzell on American Gods...


The score to American Gods was composed by Brian Reitzell (Lost in Translation, Hannibal). As eclectic and mercurial as the beloved subject matter of the series, the music is a perfect companion to the visuals on screen yet stands tall in its own right.

The soundtrack also features original songs composed for the series as well as classic covers sung by Mark Lanegan, and Debbie Harry of Blondie. Each week Milan Records is releasing a digital single in conjunction with the airing of new episodes. Similar to Big Little Lies, Game Of Thrones and Stranger Things, American Gods features music front and center as an essential element of the show.

American Gods is an American television series developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green for Starz based on the novel of the same name by author Neil Gaiman. The series focuses on Shadow Moon, a man serving three years in prison with only days remaining on his sentence. Shadow is given an unexpected early release after a personal tragedy and finds himself next to a man -- or, a deity -- named Wednesday. He offers Shadow a job to make his way across America to collect all of the existing old gods in order to confront the New Gods, including Media and Technology.
