Watch the trailer for The Crown season 5
Hans Zimmer’s ceremonious opening theme is the musical glue that binds together all seasons of Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ so far. But the season 5 soundtrack also features tunes from the 1990s and some classical favourites...
The Crown season 5 is now streaming on Netflix, starring Imelda Staunton as the Queen and Dominic West as Prince Charles, and as usual the music is a central feature of the award-winning show.
Based on true events, the latest season covers some turbulent ground for the royal family, from the Queen’s Annus Horribilis speech and the infamous Martin Bashir interview, to the public breakdown of Charles and Diana’s marriage. Across ten episodes, the season presents a dramatised depiction of six years of the British royal family, from 1991 to 1997.
The score for season 5, as with previous seasons, is the work of British composer Martin Phipps (Victoria, War & Peace), with the main opening titles theme by film great Hans Zimmer (Batman, The Lion King).
Here are all the other songs and pieces used in The Crown season 5.
