From Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, 1923 is the next installment of the Dutton family origin story that introduces a new generation of Duttons led by patriarch Jacob (Harrison Ford) and matriarch Cara (Helen Mirren). The series explores the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought and the end of Prohibition all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.
Available everywhere now, the album features score music written by Brian Tyler and Breton Vivian for the Paramount+ original drama series 1923. Tyler and Vivian have previously worked with 1923 creator Taylor Sheridan, with Tyler having composed the music for all five seasons of Sheridan’s hit show Yellowstone and Vivian as co-composer since Season 3. The duo is also responsible for the Emmy® nominated music featured in Sheridan’s limited series 1883, the first of the Dutton family origin stories, which debuted in 2021.
Of the soundtrack, composer Brian Tyler says, “1923 is my fourth project with the incredible creator and writer Taylor Sheridan, whose proclivity for creating stunning and historically accurate worlds has paved the way for creating the kind of music I love most. I endeavored to create an emotionally powerful and spiritually transcendent score that tells the story of the Dutton family at a time of change in America. The score is a mosaic of the noir excitement of speakeasies, the bittersweet struggle to maintain strength and independence on the ranch as civilization modernizes, the brutal displacement and Christianization of Natives, and the wild, animal-dominated landscape of Africa. I wanted this music to have all the tones of passion, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of awe. Collaborating with both Taylor Sheridan and Breton Vivian continues to be an amazing experience and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work on another incredible project with both of them.”
1923 is streaming now exclusively on Paramount+.
