The addition of Chromatics brought a contemporary synth-pop sheen to last night’s season premiere of Twin Peaks, and now Pitchfork reports that the Portland-based band will also appear on a pair of new soundtrack albums for the newly revived series. Rhino Records has announced the upcoming release of Twin Peaks (Music From The Limited Event Series) and Twin Peaks (Limited Event Series Original Soundtrack), both featuring music from Chromatics as well as director David Lynch’s longtime collaborator Angelo Badalamenti.

Yesterday, the band—which also performed at the Twin Peaks premiere party last Friday in Los Angeles—also released a Lynch-themed music video for “Shadow,” the song they performed for Old James and the gang at the Bang Bang Bar on last night’s second episode. Originally released in 2015, the Twin Peaks credits list the song as being from Dear Tommy, the as-yet-unreleased album Chromatics have been teasing for years now.


Both new Twin Peaks soundtrack albums are due out September 8.
