The superb Scottish instrumental rock, post-rock band Mogwai’s ‘Titles‘ is the cool theme music for the new Apple TV+ series Black Bird.
Mogwai also wrote the soundtrack for the 6-part limited crime drama.
The ominous sounding theme song and the Black Bird soundtrack are not the first time the Scottish band has composed music for a TV show.
They also provided soundtracks for ZeroZeroZero and the French series The Returned (aka Les Revenants ) , as well as for the documentaries Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, Atomic, Living in Dread and Promise, and Before the Flood and for the movie Kin.
As for Black Bird, it is a true story based on incidents in the life of convicted criminal Jimmy Keene.
A criminal who is given the offer of being transferred from a minimum security prison to a maximum security prison for the criminally insane so that he can befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall.
If he gets a confession from Hall, and details as to where bodies are buried, his own 10-year sentence will be commuted and he will be set free.

The six-episode mini series Black Bird is currently streaming on Apple TV Plus. It stars Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser who both give superb performances.
