In the Isaac Ravishankara-directed visual, the Oscar-winning composer/Childish Gambino producer constructs his Spaghetti Western-inspired theme instrument-by-instrument, from the drums and guitar to synths and bass recorder. Each segment of the theme also finds Göransson performing in a different Mandalorian set.
Göransson — who won the Academy Award for Best Score in 2019 for Black Panther — recorded roughly four hours of new music for The Mandalorian, with a separate soundtrack digitally released for each of Season 1’s eight episodes. Göransson will also serve as the composer on The Mandalorian’s second season, arriving on Disney+ this fall.
As a producer, Göransson took home Grammys for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 2019 for his work on Childish Gambino’s “This Is America.”
