"Euphoria"'s Season 2 Soundtrack Has Finally Arrived
HBO's "Euphoria" delivered all the iconic music we'd hoped to hear on the show in season two. Fans welcomed the premiere with open arms on Jan. 9, fully expecting more great jams — and we certainly weren't disappointed as the show came to an end with its epic finale. Considering all the throwback tracks from 2Pac, Hall & Oates, Faith Evans, and more, the soundtrack for "Euphoria"'s second season sounds extremely grown for a bunch of Gen Z high schoolers — which complements the show's mature reputation.
Of the show's approach to music, "Euphoria" composer Labrinth touched on the creative process behind some of the songs viewers have raved over this season. "The main approach with most of the music on the show is Sam is like, 'Lab, just make what the f*ck you're making,'" he told Variety. "Don't let no one get in the way of what you're making, just do what you do.' It's like he's going to a record shop, and I'm the record shop." Labrinth even offered insight into how his song"I'm Tired" — which he sings to Rue in episode four — came together. "[Zendaya] was like, 'Check out this scene, this is what we're talking about.' Then I [sang], 'Hey lord, you know I'm tired.' And then she was like, 'Oh sh*t!,'" he added. "And we just started writing the song. It was all of that impulsive inspiration, you know?"
Just a few days after the finale aired, "Euphoria" released its official season two soundtrack with a few fan favorites like Labrinth's "Yeh I F*ckin' Did It," as well as "Elliot's Song," which caused quite the stir in the final episode. Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Lana Del Rey, James Blake, Noah Cyrus, Lil Xan, and more. Ahead, listen to every song featured on season two of "Euphoria."
