A soundtrack for the new series Under the Banner of Heaven, featuring original music from Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and touring member Josh Klinghoffer, will be released in June.
As previously reported, Ament and Klinghoffer created the show’s score alongside Pearl Jam’s Gigaton producer Josh Evans and Fitz and the Tantrums drummer John Wicks.
“Banner was the perfect project to put to use an idea I’ve had for years — using the big room of my studio as an amplifier for a bunch of a low volume looper stations and composing and performing over tuned ambient beds,” Ament says. “It was truly a dream to put music to this incredible story.”
You can listen to three selections from the soundtrack now via digital outlets.
Under the Banner of Heaven, which airs via FX on Hulu, is a true crime drama based on the 2003 nonfiction book of the same name. It stars Andrew Garfield, Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sam Worthington.
Ament, meanwhile, unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week during Pearl Jam’s tour after drummer Matt Cameron also contracted the virus last week. As a result, Pearl Jam canceled their shows in Sacramento, California, and Las Vegas.
