If there’s a quintessential voice to the cult classic ABC mystery series Twin Peaks, it belongs to creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, but if there’s a second quintessential voice to the series, it belongs to Angelo Badalamenti, the man behind the haunting iconic score to the show. Of course, Badalamenti has added his unique tones to the moving pictures of many Lynch films, but since he was turning 70 years old next year, it was understandably a question mark as to whether or not he might return for Twin Peaks’ Showtime relaunch along with a litany of other talent from the original series run. Well worry not, because Badalamenti is back, and he’s back at work in this new teaser for the show.
Via the official Twin Peaks YouTube channel:
TWIN PEAKS features prolific composer Angelo Badalamenti and his Grammy Award-winning theme music from the original series – one of the most distinctive ever created for television by David Lynch. Badalamenti will return as composer for the new series, which will premiere on SHOWTIME in 2017.
Badalamenti has written some of the most unique film scores of our time. He is widely known for his long-standing collaboration with TWIN PEAKS director David Lynch, which has produced a creative and inspired body of work. In addition to receiving the Grammy Award for the theme music of the original series, the “Soundtrack Album from Twin Peaks” achieved gold status in 25 countries. Badalamenti has also received three Emmy Award nominations for the original series, as well as Golden Globe® nominations for films The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.
There’s also an extended version of the teaser as well.
Twin Peaks will air sometime in 2017 on Showcase.
