13 Reasons Why is now available and with its release comes a whole new list of songs featured on the soundtrack, from the likes of Yungblud, 5 Seconds of Summer and Charli XCX.
The show started out as an emotional suicide letter from teen Hannah Baker who left behind 13 cassette tapes detailing why she took her own life, but it evolved into a series that looks at wider controversial issues that teens face. The teen drama returned for
its third season (Friday, 23rd August) with a new mystery – who killed Bryce Walker? – again looking at suicide, rape and drug abuse.
The 13 Reasons Why soundtrack packs just as much of an emotional punch as the plot, often driving home the meaning behind the events unfolding on screen. As well as the official soundtrack there are plenty of background tracks that add to the mood so we’ve compiled an episode-by-episode guide so you can listen back to the tracks used in 13 Reasons Why season 3.
