Bridgerton promised us it wouldn’t be our grandmother’s period piece, and that extends to its score.
From Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish, the new Shondaland series, which dropped on Netflix at Christmas, is bursting with lush string quartet covers of pop songs, such as “thank u, next,” (Ariana Grande), “Girls Like You,” (Maroon 5), “In My Blood,” (Shawn Mendes), “Bad Guy,” (Billie Eilish), “Strange,” (Celeste), and “Wildest Dreams,” (Taylor Swift).
Emmy-award winning composer Kris Bowers was behind the soundtrack’s original compositions and the covers, the latter of which he is featured on alongside Vitamin String Quartet and Duomo.
“I’m so thankful to not only have been a part of this incredible show, but to also make music like this with all of our musicians recording remotely,” Bowers said in a statement. “I couldn’t have done this without my team and the amazing musicians who put a tremendous amount of heart and emotion into this score, all from their home studios.”
Lakeshore Records has also just released the show’s original score, Bridgerton — Music From the Netflix Original Series. The label also released a companion track featuring the six covers. You can listen to the pop covers below.
