    What’s the name of the last song on episode 2 of “Away”? And how do I get it?

    • David Nascimento says:

      “Into The Mystic”, by Van Morrison.

    • Sam says:

      Last song from last episode is called “atlas”, from will bates (composer of the soundtrack)
      I noticed that it is inspired from Moby’s song “why does my heart feels so bad”

  2. Opal says:

    Will the score ever be available to download or listen to? The last song on Ep. 10 was simply amazing

      Absolutely, the last theme of the last chapter, since landing on Mars until the end of the credits, made me really be there, on Mars and in the Control Room.

        I need this soundtrack please!

  3. Nicolas JANVIER says:

    What is the name of the last song on episode 5.?

  4. LWood says:

    In episode 10, Will Bates music cue at 40m47s is Hans Zimmer’s ‘Time’ from ‘Inception’. It wasn’t noted in the credits as such, but that chord progression is distinctly from Hans Zimmer’s music cue ‘Time’.

  5. LWood says:

    Watch the final scene from ‘Inception’ and you’ll hear the exact chord progression. In the jet, when Don opens his eyes the music cue begins.

  6. Nick says:

    Will Bates – Launch

  7. Julia says:

    Bates has not even built in parts of Hans Zimmers “Time”, the space walk scene has obviously “Interstellar” elements.
