Who created the hypnotic theme music for season 2 of The White Lotus? – New

Season 2 of HBO’s black comedy-drama The White Lotus returned to UK screens on Monday with a brand new opening sequence.

Wrapped with a painted tapestry that hints at the upcoming narrative, the opening credits also include a new track which viewers can’t get enough of.

A minute into this new theme, from a melodic harp and operatic vocals, the melody gradually turns into a yodelling remix that drops a minute with a haughty drum beat.

This revamped version caught the attention of fans of the series, with a Tweeter“I can hear God when the beat drops”, another to add: “The White Lotus the theme music didn’t have to be SO difficult”.

Track ‘Renaissance‘ was written by Emmy Award-winning composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer, who also created the title track for the first season ‘Hello!‘.

Compared to the Season 1 title sequence, this release’s footage includes more detail echoing hints of the upcoming story depicted through elegant Renianssance-like paintings.
