The original and official Seinfeld soundtrack is finally available on all digital platforms for the first time ever.
Clocking in at 40 minutes with 33 tracks, the album features the show’s iconic bass-heavy theme and tracks that were used in memorable moments, including “Kramer’s Pimpwalk,” “Jerry the Mailman,” “Jerry Vs. Newman Chase,” “Cable Guy vs. Kramer Chase,” “Kramer’s Boombox, ” “Peterman in Burmese Jungle” and “Waiting for the Verdict” from the series finale. Composer Jonathan Wolff called the album “30 years in the making” and explained his process of selecting which pieces made it to the album from the 180 episodes, “Was it the primary audio of a famous ‘Seinfeld’ scene? Did it contribute in a significant way to the comedy of the scene? And upon hearing it, will it serve as an instantly identifiable signature and bring warm fuzzies to a ‘Seinfeld’ fan who will remember that scene?”
Wolff added that although he was unsure of why there was never a soundtrack when it was airing, Seinfeld was “an accidental hit” when it was on NBC. “It struggled for the first few seasons,” he said. “We were an accidental hit. We were busy getting episodes out, and nobody was thinking about the music. And that’s OK.”
The beloved series recently left its streaming home of Hulu and is expected to hit Netflix this Fall.
Stream the official Seinfeld soundtrack on Spotify and stay tuned for the show’s official Netflix release date.
