Composer Nicholas Britell has released his soundtrack for season 3 of HBO’s hit series Succession. The score features 21 new tracks from the latest season of the show, including a cover of Billy Joel’s “Honesty” sung in the series by Jeremy Strong’s character Kendall Roy. Check it out below.
“Season 3 gave me such an exciting opportunity to explore new musical directions for the sound of Succession,” Britell said in a press release. “From the FBI raid on Waystar Royco to the wedding in Tuscany, this soundtrack album showcases the wide scope of this season’s music. And as a very special bonus we are pleased to include a full recording of Kendall Roy’s rendition of the Billy Joel classic, ‘Honesty’.”
Britell has composed for every season of Succession. In 2019, Pusha-T rewored the now-famous theme for the show for a track titled “Puppets (Succession Remix).” In 2020, Britell officially released Kendall Roy’s rap song “L to the OG,” which he performed to his father, media mogul Logan Roy, in season two.
Britell has worked on a number of narrative dramas in the past several years. His compositions for Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk, and (Don’t Look Up), earned Oscar nominations in the Best Original Score category.
