The Highwaymen is now on Netflix and with it comes a fantastic soundtrack full of music that’s reflective of the time era the movie is set in. The trailer also featured some great music too and we’ll list all of that including a Spotify playlist below.
As we said above, the music for the movie is a collective tribute to the music from the 1930’s that the movie is set in.
Reviews for the move have been positive thus far with Metacritic with a 58 on Metacritic with most saying the movie tells the most compelling version of the Bonnie and Clyde events.
The song from the trailer is from Reuben And The Dark and is called “Hallelujah”.
The main soundtrack consists of music from Thomas Newman who has been nominated for a total of 14 Oscars in his career but sadly has never won. He’s worked on the music for movies such as Skyfall, Wall-E, and American Beauty. Plus he’s also worked on TV series such as Netflix’s Five Came Back, Castle Rock, The Newsroom and Christine.
