The vast scope of Eternals deserves an epic score to match, and it sounds like composer Ramin Djawadi delivered something worthy of the team. Ahead of the film’s premiere in just two weeks, Marvel has released two tracks from Djawadi’s soundtrack. You can listen to both of them below.
Djawadi isn’t a stranger to scoring big-name franchises, having worked on both Game of Thrones and Westworld for HBO. However, Eternals marks his long-awaited return to the MCU after scoring the original Iron Man movie in 2008. Heavy guitars don’t suit Jack Kirby’s band of immortal superheroes the same way they suited Tony Stark’s first cinematic outing well over a decade ago. That’s why Djawadi took a different approach when tackling the Eternals’ own big-screen introduction.

The first track, “Eternals Theme,” starts out simply enough, with bubbling synths that gradually rise in volume and pave the way for the string and horn sections. But it isn’t until the drums come in that the piece really hits its empowering stride. You can also hear shades of Djawadi’s Game of Thrones theme, as if the onscreen reunion of former co-stars Richard Madden and Kit Harington didn’t give viewers enough déjà vu. Meanwhile, “Across the Oceans of Time” is more somber, with choir chants lifting the track to dizzying new heights.
The Eternals soundtrack will be available on November 3, while the film hits theaters on November 5.
