(Los Angeles, CA) — WaterTower Music is excited to announce new release available on Friday, August 21, for… DC/Warner Bros. Television series: “Lucifer”: Seasons 1-5 (Original Television Soundtrack). The WaterTower Music releases are available at all platforms now… on Saturday, August 22.
“Lucifer”: Seasons 1-5 (Original Television Soundtrack) features 13 songs from the first five seasons of the devilish drama, featuring performances by series stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German and Lesley Ann-Brandt, as well as guest star Lindsey Gort and performer Skye Townsend. Recently renewed for a sixth and final season, “Lucifer’s” fifth season premiered Friday, August 21 on Netflix.
“Lucifer” composers Jeff Russo and Ben Decter relished the opportunity to tap the musical skills of the cast in performing a number of classic and contemporary standards: “Getting to record amazing songs with a fantastically talented cast is a rare experience. And creating this ‘Lucifer’ soundtrack album was a treat. If only every cast were as fun! We feel lucky.”
Series star Tom Ellis, who plays the title character, was equally enthusiastic: “The music of ‘Lucifer’ has been one of the main reasons I have loved playing this role. It rekindles my passion for singing, which ironically started in church when I was a child. Funny old world, isn’t it?”
