The First New Song From 'Stranger Things' Season Two Will Get Your Heart Racing

So good to hear those synths again

Last year, S U R V I V E's Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein said they'd be shocked if the Duffer Brothers went with someone else to make the music for Stranger Things Season Two. As the show became the surprise hit of the summer, its music also became the biggest TV soundtrack of the year, propelling S U R V I V E to a national headlining tour and festival slots.

Today, Dixon and Stein released the first taste of the Stranger Things Season Two soundtrack. The song is called "Walkin' in Hawkins," and is a brighter, more curious take on the same synth patches from the original soundtrack. It sounds like the perfect music for a sunny day aerial shot of Hawkins, Indiana, with a little doom on the horizon.

"In Season Two we're introducing new styles of composition, while still revisiting old themes when appropriate," Dixon and Stein said in a statement. "We've created new elements that are necessary to support the story, but still want to remain true to the sound of Season One."

The duo have also announced a full soundtrack, which is out on 20 October through Invada and Lakeshore. It includes 34 songs, one of which is called "Eggo in the Snow," which I'm personally looking forward to very much.

As they told me last year, the music is kind of another character on the show.

"At the beginning, in the first episode you have to set up this is a perfect little town, everybody's having a great time, so you play up this childish wonder," Stein said. "Then everything goes to shit and it gets scary, so they kind of play off of each other."

At least we know the Stranger Things music will never go the way of Barb.
