The soundtrack for the Doctor Who New Year’s Day special, Revolution of the Daleks, is now available to download on Spotify, Amazon, Apple, Deezer and Tidal.
Composer, Segun Akinola, who has composed the score for Series 11 and Series 12 of Doctor Who, said: “Revolution of the Daleks is an emotional roller coaster full of action, tension, old friends, old enemies and some heartfelt goodbyes, all of which are accompanied by music that utilizes many of the musical themes from Series 11 and Series 12, and very often moves from a solo cello to orchestra, and much more in-between.
“It’s a ‘special’ in every sense of the word which I hope those who’ve enjoyed listening to the Series 11 and 12 albums will love. So, if that’s you, thank you - this album is dedicated to you!”
Segun is an alumnus of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and part of 2017’s BAFTA Breakthrough Brit program, with other works including Sundance 2019 favorite The Last Tree, Shola Amoo’s A Moving Image, (nominated for a Discovery Award, World Soundtrack Awards), David Olusoga’s Black and British: A Forgotten History.
