Bridgerton season two is streaming now on Netflix!
Much like Lady Whistledown, we have the news of the season! That being, the music featured on the new season of Bridgerton. Particularly the new covers and soundtrack albums from season two of the Netflix and Shondaland series.
Returning to our screens over the weekend, we have delightful orchestral tunes by The Vitamin String Quartet, who brought us some instrumental versions of tracks such as Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams, Ariana Grande’s thank u, next and Shawn Mendes’ In My Blood last season. Proving to be quite popular amongst many a playlist and reels, we are blessed with some new covers. Those include, Nirvana’s Stay Away and Robyn’s Dancing on My Own, to no doubt pair with the moments of the new season perfectly. Instrumentalist Kris Bowers returns to provide beautiful themes that accompany the stunning visuals present in the second offering of the series, based on the Bridgerton musings by Julia Quinn.
Presenting us with covers including Madonna’s Material Girl and a Jatin-Lalit and Lata Mangesgkar track Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham from the as titled Bollywood hit film, we are treated to reimaginings of beloved hits, the new playlist also includes covers such as Rihanna’s Diamonds by Hannah V & Joe Rodwell and Alanis Morissette’s You Oughta Know by Duomo & Tomás Peire-Serrate. Duomo also brings us their cover of What About Us by Pink, having graced us with their moving rendition of Swift’s Wildest Dreams in one of the more pivotal episodes of Season 1. Steve Horner delights with his interpretation of Harry Styles’ Sign of the Times, whilst Kiris Houston offers the penultimate cover; Calvin Harris and Disciples’ How Deep Is Your Love and Midnite String Quartet take on Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball.
Even Lady Whistledown would be jealous with a line up like that. The beauty lies in the accompanying Bridgerton soundtrack, blessing us with all the magical themes by Kris Bowers. As a team who appreciate a stunning soundtrack, Bowers never fails to disappoint. With stunning compositions, the playlist lends another level of masterpiece to the spellbinding imagery and writing. Accompanying the new album, Spotify’s official playlist also gives fans an immersive listening experience with exclusive interviews from the cast, focusing on the music of Bridgerton. Fans will also get to hear from the composer himself, alongside music supervisor Justin Kamps, on how the duo curated the collection for the latest series.
Season one provided many more with the opportunity to take on an appreciation for symphonic tunes, by introducing audiences to a fusion of classic and contemporary sounds. The creative team have followed that through with season two, and we can’t wait to see what season three brings. That being, we’re secretly hoping for a cover of Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart.
