Formula One’s new theme music has been released. The three-minute piece was created by film composer Brian Tyler.
The theme is available via Amazon, Apple Music and other streaming services.
Tyler’s previous work includes compositions for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and several instalments of the The Fast And The Furious film series.
Tyler said on social media it was “an honor to be chosen to compose the Formula One theme” and “a life long dream come true as I am a massive Formula One fan.”
The new theme continues the rebranding of the sport begun by commercial rights holders Liberty Media last year, which included the introduction of a new logo. Formula One’s television and online graphics have also been overhauled ahead of the start of the 2018 F1 season later this week.
Formula One said in a statement the changes are being made “within the context of looking at ways to bring fans closer to Formula 1.”
“We are exploring all avenues to refresh the look and feel of the show,” it added.
“Music is a key component of the emotion of sport and we are engaging with top international talent in order to develop a new signature tune for F1.”
