The National, Patti Smith, St. Vincent to Appear on Boardwalk Empire Soundtrack
The fourth season of HBO’s critically acclaimed series Boardwalk Empire is known for having music composed and performed by some of the most talented people in the business.
Last year, volume one of Boardwalk’s soundtrack took home the Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media, and with a look at the new group of artists contributing to the next soundtrack, they could possibly repeat the honor.
The National, Patti Smith, St. Vincent, Elvis Costello and many others will be featured on volume two covering songs all from the 1920s. The music supervisor on the show, Randall Poster, expressed his excitement in a statement: “Boardwalk Empire provides an incredible backdrop for music. It’s been a steady treat to mark the passing of time in song over the course of four seasons. Terry Winters, Martin Scorsese and the entire Boardwalk Empire team inspire the sound of the episodes.”
