After a 13-year wait, Avatar: The Way of Water has finally landed in cinemas, transporting viewers to Pandora's underwater world.
It might be over a decade since the original Avatar movie, but some fans have kept the hype up during that period, clamouring not only for the continuation of James Cameron’s storytelling in the faraway land of Pandora, but also many elements of the production, such as the visuals and the soundtrack.
There's good news on this front. Avatar: The Way of Water Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is now available on all music streaming platforms – listen now on Amazon Music, Apple Music, TIDAL, and Deezer.
The soundtrack includes 22 tracks, featuring music by Grammy Award-winning composer Simon Franglen, as well as an exclusive original song titled Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength) by The Weeknd.
The four-time Grammy winner The Weeknd revealed that he had contributed a brand new song to the sequel's soundtrack by sharing a clip of the track on Twitter earlier in December 2022.
This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has contributed to a film’s soundtrack. His single Earned It appeared in Fifty Shades of Grey, and he is also behind Devil May Cry, which features in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Avatar: The Way of Water reintroduces fans to Jake (Sam Worthington), Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and much of the original cast almost 15 years after the events of Avatar, as well as introducing a whole new tribe: the water-dwelling Metkayina.
