Paramount Music: "DEFENDING JACOB" music by Atli Örvarsson


Paramount Music has digitally released Apple’s Defending Jacob Limited Series Soundtrack exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music. The album features an original score by Atli Örvarsson (The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Rams) and an original theme by Ólafur Arnalds. Defending Jacob has premiered its first three episodes exclusively on Apple TV+ today, April 24, and new episodes will premiere weekly thereafter every Friday.

Atli Örvarsson on scoring the thriller series: “Defending Jacob was a very special project for me on so many levels. I came onboard because Morten Tyldum (Director/Executive Producer) and Mark Bomback (Writer/Executive Producer) had heard some material from my upcoming album ‘You Are Here’ and based on what they had heard, thought I was the right composer for the show.  As a result, the creative process became a real joy. I felt like I really could just be myself as a composer and the collaboration with Morten and Mark couldn't have been more creative and challenging, but at the same time so flowing and curiously effortless.”
