For over 70 years The Emmy Awards recognize excellence in various areas of television and emerging media, and are widely recognized as one of the most coveted awards of all time. The win signifies a pivotal moment in Labrinth’s career, as it celebrates his first-ever project as lead composer.
Written and recorded in close collaboration with the show’s writer Sam Levinson, Labrinth’s original compositions to ‘Euphoria’ feature prominently throughout the series as a sonic companion to the show’s angst-driven narrative. The resulting 26-track collection is a genre blending mix of gospel, soul and electronic influences, indicative both of Labrinth’s imitable style as well as the show’s deeply moving storyline.
Labrinth adds, “My experience with Euphoria has made me a better musician. It was a dream come true to give wings and add magic to the different storylines. It was a collaborative effort among Sam Levinson, the crew and the cast - I only added texture to an already phenomenal show. I hope that anyone who listens to the music embraces feeling something.”
Executive produced by Drake, along with manager Future the Prince, the ensemble cast of Euphoria includes actor and singer Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.
