There are so many fantastic things about Amazon’s “Carnival Row,” the story, the cast, the cinematography, and the soundtrack that lends so much drama to the series. Now, the soundtrack can be yours.

Amazon Studios and Legendary Television have announced the release of Carnival Row (Original Soundtrack) featuring a score by Emmy Award nominee Nathan Barr (True Blood, The Americans, The House with a Clock in its Walls) and two original songs by German musician Patty Gurdy. The soundtrack featuring music from Season One of the hit neo-Victorian fantasy television series is now available in digital stores and on streaming platforms.


Getting to explore the world of Carnival Row as a composer is among my most exciting musical adventures to date,” said Barr.  “At its core, the score is heavily thematic and explores themes of identity, love, loss and magic in a fantastical world from the past.  Sometimes choral, sometimes orchestral, the music also plugs into the steam punk world so beautifully realized on screen with a variety of unusual musical instruments including a human bone trumpet, a century old Wurlitzer pipe organ, and several instruments of my own creation including a High Pressure Stout-O-Phone and a Sympathetic Drone Cello with 19 strings.


When I received the request to work on Carnival Row, I thought at first that it might be spam mail, but I quickly realized what an amazing request I just received,” said Gurdy. “I wrote several fairy-themed songs, and two were used prominently throughout the first season. The two songs were written for the character Aisling Querelle, who used to be a famous singer in the fairy world Tirnanoc. Using my interest in Irish legend, I got completely captured in my own imaginary highland fairy-landscapes, which made it strangely natural for me to write from the perspective of such a magical and feminine character. I am so flattered to have the chance to work on this amazing production. The world of Carnival Row is truly breathtaking.”


Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) star in Carnival Row, a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans—forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.


Carnival Row” is from Amazon Studios and Legendary Television, with Executive Producers Marc Guggenheim (ArrowEli Stone), René Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium), Jon Amiel (Outsiders), Bloom, and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans). Beacham’s A Killing on Carnival Row, on which the project is based, appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.

Watch the dark and enchanting “Carnival Row” now streaming on Amazon Prime.
