The 'Stranger Things' Season 2 Soundtrack Is Out; Listen To A New Song

Stranger Things wouldn't be the nostalgia-fueled '80s genre movie love letter that it is without an appropriately synth-heavy soundtrack. The eerie opening theme has joined the ranks of Peak TV's most iconic title sequences, subdued and retro as it is.

So it's no wonder that Netflix would have a glitzy rollout for its Stranger Things season 2 soundtrack, soon to be made available digitally and on CD, vinyl, and cassette tapes. So break out your Walkman and listen to the preview of the first title track, "Walkin' in Hawkins."

Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, who composed the famous title track and season 1 score, shared the track list and the first song from the Stranger Things season 2 soundtrack. In a statement accompanying the release, the duo said said:

"In Season 2 we're introducing new styles of composition, while still revisiting old themes when appropriate. We've created new elements that are necessary to support the story, but still want to remain true to the sound of Season 1."

You can listen to "Walkin' in Hawkins" here.

"Walkin' in Hawkins" shares a few elements with the season 1 title theme, but is a little more upbeat, with steel drums woven in through the electronic synth.
