Steve Buscemi? Check. Martin Scorsese? Check. Awesome drama about the 1920s bootlegging? Check.
Just when it appeared HBO'sBoardwalk Empire couldn't get any better, the show stepped up its game once again. Matt Berninger of The National will be contributing to the show's second soundtrack with 1920s inspired track "I'll See You in My Dreams." The low tone of Berninger's voice mixes perfectly with the 20s feel that the soundtrack aims to capture.
The Boardwalk Empire Vol. 2 album will also feature the likes of Patti Smith, St. Vincent, and Elvis Costello. The soundtrack will be made up of 1920s covers.
Boardwalk Empire producer, Randall Poster, expressed his excitement for the project:
“Boardwalk Empire provides an incredible backdrop for music. It’s been a steady treat to mark the passing of time in song over the course of four seasons. Terry Winters, Martin Scorsese and the entire Boardwalk Empire team inspire the sound of the episodes.”
The collection will be released September 3 via ABKCO records. Listen to the Matt Berninger's "I'll See You in My Dreams" below.
