A NEW COUNTRY

Lovecraft Country premiered on August 16, 2020, on HBO and consists of ten episodes. Based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback. Along with the Lovecraft Country Spotify Page and the Lovecraft Country Radio Podcast, comes the 62-track Soundtrack from WaterTower Music, the in-house label for WarnerMedia. In addition to 11 tracks performed by the show’s cast in the first season, the album showcases original music by composer Laura Karpman, whose career spans film, television videogame and concert music, and Oscar-nominated producer/ musician/ songwriter Raphael Saadiq. They musically explore every conceivable genre while focusing on the hearts and souls of our heroes. The album is organized by episode.

available on iTunes, Amazon, etc.
