Dec. 5, 2017 –  CBS Television Studios announced today the release of the original score of the CBS All Access series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, which premiered earlier this fall.

The album, featuring the score by Emmy Award-winning composer Jeff Russo and distributed by Lakeshore Records, will be available digitally on Friday, Dec. 15, with presales beginning Friday, Dec. 8. The soundtrack will be available as a CD and vinyl album in early 2018.

  “Grand, glorious, hopeful, heartbreaking, intimate, bittersweet, tense, soaring, surprising.  Over 51 years, in its many iterations, there's been no shortage of adjectives to describe the music of Star Trek,” said co-creator Alex Kurtzman.  “On the other hand, the list of composers capable of capturing them all is short, and this is where Jeff Russo comes in.  Jeff manages to hold each note in beautiful balance, evoking the nostalgia of Alexander Courage's original theme while scoring Discovery with his own unique ear and heart.  We're lucky to have him, and we hope you'll love his music as much as we do.”

“The producers and I talked a lot about telling this story from an emotional point of view,” explained Russo. “Relationships play a big role in this incarnation of the series, so trying to be true to that and create themes that connect characters is important.”
