Whether it's in the panels of a comic or the frames of a TV show or film, heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash are always a sight to behold. But let's not overlook how they sound. Whether it's the iconic, influential work of master composers like John Williams, Shirley Walker or Hans Zimmer, the retro kitsch associated with shows like 1966's Batman or 1973's Super Friends, or the poppy, irresistible hooks of the recent DC Super Hero Girls theme, "Get Your Cape On," DC has a long legacy of unforgettable music.
In 2010, WaterTower Music paid tribute to this with the release of the critically-acclaimed The Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection. Featuring unforgettable themes from all throughout DC's history, the collection found its way into the homes and playlists of many a DC fan. It's been six years since then, and it's once again time to break out the headphones as today WaterTower announced a companion album to that bestselling collection.
The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2 features 29 songs from beloved movies, television shows, games and radio shows including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Dark Knight Rises, Supergirl, Gotham and The Flash, including eleven songs that have never before been released previously.
