With the new decade in its stride, the Royal Family are presented with possibly their biggest challenge to date; as the public openly question their role in ’90s Britain.
As Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession, she reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television and the twilight of the British Empire. Yet new challenges are on the horizon.
The Crown Season Five is back with music by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-winning composer Martin Phipps (Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders). Available everywhere now, the album features score music written by Phipps for the fifth season of Netflix’s historical drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Phipps reprises his role as the show’s composer following his critically-acclaimed scores for seasons 3 and 4, which notably garnered his sixth and seventh career Emmy® Award nominations.
Of the soundtrack, composer Martin Phipps says, “It’s been a huge pleasure to continue the musical development of The Crown and update its world to the 1990s. As ever, the characters have such breadth & depth that’s it always rewarding to score their emotional journey.”
The fifth season of The Crown is available to stream now on Netflix.
