The soundtrack to the five part TV series The Planets is released via Silva Screen Records. The show follows the dramatic lives of the eight majestic planets that make up our solar system through five episodes: A Moment in the Sun - The Terrestrial Planets (Inner Worlds), The Two Sisters - Earth & Mars, The Godfather - Jupiter, Life Beyond the Sun - Saturn, Into the Darkness - Ice Worlds...

The Planets soundtrack is written by composers James Christie, Anže Rozman, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, who work as a part of the musically diverse composer’s collective Bleeding Fingers. Founded by Hans Zimmer, Steve Kofsky and Russell Emanuel. This helps to give the album a much wider variety of sound, without it feeling disjointed.

Each track is very different from the last. The one thing that connects them all is that they're all emotionally engaging. From epic themes to melancholic moments of reflection, this is nourishment for the soul.

This is a wonderfully realised, beautiful collection of themes. Not a second is wasted here.
