The trailer notably features the explosive Bryce Miller/Alloy Tracks Remix of Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” which opens Stranger Things: Soundtrack from the Netflix Series, Season 4. When Journey’s legendary vocalist/songwriter/frontman Steve Perry first heard the remix of his band’s smash hit from 1983, “I was stunned at how cool it was. I found out that Bryce Miller and Troy MacCubbin had created it and told them how much I loved it. One week later, I had an idea for an extended version, so I called Bryce and we assembled our Extended Remix. Being a huge fan of the show, having my music on the soundtrack made me very happy! I truly love both these remixed versions as much as I do the original recording from the Journey Frontiers record.” The new Steve Perry & Bryce Miller Extended Remix of “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” provides an epic bookend power-close for the album.
Between the “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” remixes, Stranger Things: Soundtrack from the Netflix Series, Season 4 travels across the action-packed supernatural world of the show through carefully-curated well-placed musical selections underscoring the emotional journeys of the characters and their storylines. From the sound of KISS banging out “Detroit Rock City” during a pivotal game of Dungeons & Dragons to the catharsis and psychic liberation of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God),” music plays an essential role in the storytelling of “Stranger Things.”
Stranger Things: Soundtrack from the Netflix Series, Season 4 showcases music tracks evoking various classic eras and styles as featured in “Stranger Things 4.” The soundtrack album is conceptualized and produced by The Duffer Brothers and Nora Felder (Grammy and Emmy nominee Nora Felder has served as music supervisor for “Stranger Things” since the show’s inception and was nominated for a Music Supervision Grammy the first year the category was recognized by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences). The compilation album is produced by The Duffer Brothers and 2x Grammy nominee Timothy J. Smith.
