Composer Tyler Bates' score for Universal Pictures' Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is officially out now.

The album is available now via major digital streaming platforms HERE and a complete tracklisting can be found below.
Hobbs & Shaw marks the 11th feature film that Tyler Bates has composed music for that has reached number 1 at the box office. Having also written the music for the entire Guardians of the Galaxy and John Wick series, as well as a number of notable movies including Deadpool 2 (2018), Watchmen (2009), 300 (2007), his scores continue to fuel some of the world's biggest films and franchises. Hobbs & Shaw is on target to push the cumulative worldwide box-office gross of Bates' projects over 5 billion dollars to-date.
"Creating the score for Hobbs & Shaw was an absolutely wild ride," says Bates. "David Leitch ran through a wall, and every department followed his lead to make an incredibly entertaining movie that has heart & humor, and that rocks hard with a thousand guitars from start to finish!"

Tyler Bates regularly transitions from scoring some of the world's biggest film and television franchises, such as Guardians of the Galaxy and John Wick, to rocking massive audiences with Marilyn Manson, and back to the studio again writing and producing. In 2004, he made waves by creating the menacing audio backdrop for the popular Zack Snyder reboot of Dawn of the Dead, followed by his soundtrack for the filmmaker's 300. His oeuvre expanded to include films like Watchmen, Sucker Punch, The Devil's Rejects, and Halloween I & II, and TV Shows like Californication, Kingdom, Salem, The Purge and more. Bates co-wrote and produced Manson's 2015 epic, The Pale Emperor. As the band's lead guitarist, he dedicated over a year to touring in support of the album on the headline Hell Not Hallelujah Tour. In 2017, he once again joined forces in the studio with Manson on the follow-up album Heaven Upside Down and returned to the road for a string of high-profile touring. More recently, Bates scored the blockbuster Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde, The Spy Who Dumped Me, and The Punisher - Seasons 1 & 2. With more new projects on the horizon, Tyler Bates will undoubtedly continue to redefine what a composer is.
After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015's Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they've tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton Lorr (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever - and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown's Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw's sister - these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa. Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a story by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan and a screenplay by Morgan and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3), the film is produced by Johnson, Statham, Morgan and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Ethan Smith, Ainsley Davies and Steven Chasman.
