La-La Land Records has announced that the soundtracks to Arrow Season 3 and The Flash Season 1 will be released in two-CD limited edition sets (3,000 units). The CW hit series are scored by Blake Neely, who, as if he’s not busy enough, also composes the music for new series Blindspot and Supergirl.
As a special bonus, both the Arrow and The Flash albums will contain music from The Flash vs. Arrow crossover episodes, with Part 1 appearing on The Flash album and Part 2 appearing on the Arrow recording. Both sets will be available at lalalandrecords.com on Oct. 20, and at major music retail outlets on Oct. 27.
“Season 3 of ARROW started with a bang,” said Neely, in a release. “A huge action sequence with our hero and his counterparts taking down a new villain. But that wasn’t the bang that left us all in shock. The unexpected murder of one of our best-loved characters, Canary, spun the series into a new direction and set the stage for what would be a dark, twisting, emotional journey, littered with bodies, surprises, team-ups, new heroes, and one of my favorite characters to have scored — the great Ra’s al Guhl.
“Although I was warned, I had no idea how my life would change when Barry Allen bounced into a scene in Episode 208 of ARROW,” Neely continued. “Not only would this character send me in a new musical direction, but he would launch a new TV series that would connect me with thousands more die-hard fans on Twitter and millions more fans worldwide.
“Soon Oliver [ARROW] and Barry [THE FLASH] would join forces to save their two cities in an epic two-night event. The episodes were so successful that we immediately released a soundtrack. Included on both soundtracks are second discs containing music from Part 1 and Part 2 of the crossover, along with additional bonus tracks from the respective series.”
