Better Call Saul, Vol. 2 Music By Dave Porter
Better Call Saul’s final season concludes the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six tracks Jimmy, Saul and Gene as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike (Jonathan Banks), Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), Nacho (Michael Mando) and Lalo (Tony Dalton) are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.
After scoring the entirety of the Breaking Bad series, composer Dave Porter returns to write the score for this AMC prequel-spinoff to Breaking Bad who has a longstanding creative partnership with series creator Vince Gilligan. This release features from Seasons 3-5 of Better Call Saul and will be followed by a final volume of music coming out later this summer in conjunction with the series finale.
Of the score, composer DAVE PORTER says, “I am very pleased to be releasing my score from seasons 3-5 of Better Call Saul, which covers so many crucial moments for all of its beloved characters… Chuck, Nacho, Mike, Kim, Lalo, and of course charting the inevitable development of Jimmy into Saul into Gene. Included are many fan-requested tracks along with a few gems that were written for the show but ultimately were not included. Collaborating with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould on Better Call Saul has offered me the largest canvas yet to explore the musical universe of Breaking Bad, and I’m so grateful to be a part of such an incredible production.”
The final season of Better Call Saul is rolling out in two parts with the first seven episodes premiering Mondays on AMC and AMC+ at 9pm through May 23; culminating with the series’ final six episodes beginning July 11.
