|ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK OUTLANDER (BEAR MCCREARY) Limited Gatefold Numbered Transparent White 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
This is the Soundtrack to the British-American television drama series created by Ronald D. Moore, based on the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon. The music is composed by Emmy Award winner Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Da Vinci's Demons) with performances by Raya Yarbrough. Moore, McCreary and Yarbrough have worked together before on the television series Battlestar Galactica.
The series follow the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
The album features music from the first part of the series. Composer McCreary has been fascinated with the Folk music of Jacobean Scotland from an early age. "From the beginning, I wanted to draw predominantly from Scottish instrumentation and folk music," he explains. "Instruments such as the fiddle, bagpipes, accordion, penny whistle and bodhrán (a type of frame drum) form the backbone of the score, supported by orchestral strings, haunting vocals and larger percussion."
