Lakeshore Records will release the NARCOS: SEASON 2 Soundtrack exclusively via iTunes/Apple Music on November 11th. Digitally through all other service providers, it will be available on November 18th and on CD December 9th. Again composer Pedro Bromfman was responsible for the Original Score and the soundtrack will also feature songs from Ruben Juarez, Grupo Niche, Usma y Su Conjunto, La Cancion Colombiana as well as the Emmy nominated main title theme “Tuyo” by Rodrigo Amarante.
At times the score will creep you out in a similar way like Dave Porter‘s theme for The Cousins in Breaking Bad – especially in contrast with all the happy South American songs that break the generally quiet and mostly sinister underscore letting you delve into a world you can be glad not to be a part of.
In case you are looking for the music in the trailer above this post, that is Ana Tijoux’s from her same-named album. You can find more info in our monthly trailer music placements recap for August.

About ‘Narcos: Season 2’
“Narcos” is inspired by the true story of Colombia’s infamously violent drug cartels and Pablo Escobar’s fight to stay the most powerful of them all. The “King of Cocaine” soon learns that narcos aren’t known for their loyalty, and Escobar and his sicarios must battle not only the Colombian and U.S. governments, but the people they once knew as friends. Meanwhile, Search Bloc and the DEA seek to destroy the drug cartels with sometimes dubious tactics, creating personal and ethical dilemmas for agents like Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, who are tasked with bringing the drug kingpins to justice.
