Mondo Music, in partnership with MARVEL, is proud to present the soundtrack to the Netflix Original Series: MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE Season Two. The all new score by composers Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (The Midnight Hour) is an incredible follow up to one of the best scores of 2016. Set in the aftermath of the first season, our hero has finally cleared his name but finds himself up against an all new opponent that threatens Harlem ... the mysterious and powerful Bushmaster.
Recorded in the winter of 2018 in Los Angeles, California, at Blakeslee Studios and Linear Labs Studios, by composers Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad - the score to LUKE CAGE Season Two is just as epic and powerful as the first. Exploring the vast sonic cultural landscape of Harlem, Adrian and Ali have introduced a dub-reggae motif for the character of Bushmaster on top of the classic themes that made the original soundtrack so essential.
When two of Hip-Hop’s most accomplished composers get together to make an album you know the results are going to be special. Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) and Adrian Younge began their work together in 2013 on the critically acclaimed album There Is Only Now, and their partnership cemented on their score work for MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE. Today, they are proud to announce the forthcoming release of their carefully constructed and masterful The Midnight Hour. It is the duo’s long-awaited album and it showcases their songwriting ability like never before.
Lead track and first single “Questions” featuring CeeLo Green is out today and has an unlikely origin story. CeeLo, Adrian and Ali originally detailed the story to Pitchfork back in 2016, when a demo version of the song appeared as a sample on “untitled 06 | 06.30.2014.,” off of Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered.project. The completed track perfectly captures the album’s underlying roots in Hip-Hop’s origins.
