Today, Capitol Records released two volumes of Bridgerton season two music, coinciding with the return of the Netflix and Shondaland series.

In keeping with the tradition of Julia Quinn novels, the second season tells the love story of Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest for love. Bridgerton comes to Netflix from Shondaland and is produced by Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and Chris Van Dusen. Van Dusen, who also served as creator and showrunner, tapped music supervisor Justin Kamps and Emmy-nominated composer Kris Bowers for music that infuses period drama with a modern sensibility.

Bridgerton Season Two (Covers from the Netflix Series) is filled with orchestral versions of songs by iconic artists from the past three decades. Vitamin String Quartet covers “Stay Away” by Nirvana and “Dancing on My Own” by Robyn. Kris Bowers reinvents Madonna’s “Material Girl” and “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, a Jatin-Lalit/Lata Mangeshkar song from the 2001 Bollywood hit film of the same name.

Following the series’ debut in late 2020, Oprah Daily said “one of the biggest contributors to Netflix’s Bridgerton magic is the music”. Entertainment Weekly said: “Bridgerton promised us it wouldn’t be our grandmother’s period piece. And that extends to her score…[which is] overflowing with lush string quartet covers of pop songs. Glamor noted, “The smash hit…is peppered with covers of pop songs by a band called the Vitamin String Quartet, reminding us that formal proms were just the clubs and house parties of the day.” “
