Black Mirror Smithereens

Famed Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto has been tasked with a big new project. He is scoring one of the new Black Mirror season 5 episodes. He is taking the musical reigns on one of the three titled “Smithereens” (did they consult Bossip on that?).

The soundtrack is 19 tracks in total and the first track is out now titled “this is my last day 2.” While it can be tough to judge soundtracks based on one song since they are designed to be complete bodies of work, “this is my last day 2” captures the haunting tension that will likely exist in the episode.

In addition to the music, Black Mirror has released the trailers for all three episodes. "Smithereens" stars Andrew Scott, a car sharing service driver who hits a breaking point. "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too" stars Miley Cyrus as a pop star who sells branded products for your home that go off the rails. Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II star in “Striking Vipers” about a husband and wife whose relationship is going awry.

The season hits Netflix on June 5, while the soundtrack will be released on June 7 via Milan Records.
