"This Is Us" chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) as young parents in the 1980s and 1990s to their now adult kids Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) searching for love, fulfillment and healing in the present day. This grounded, life-affirming drama reveals how the events in our lives – both big and small – impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance and even death. Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.
The Season 2 soundtrack album opens with "Watch Me" by Grey Reverend and closes with "Beauty and Pain" by Hannah Miller. Also featured is Chrissy Metz's gripping performance of "Landslide," Elton John's "Madman Across The Water," The National's "The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness," Eva Cassidy's version of "Time After Time," Father John Misty's"Ballad Of The Dying Man," Little River Band's "Lonesome Loser," Fleet Foxes' "If You Need To, Keep Time On Me," and several other songs heard on the show this season.
This Is Us (Music from the Series) Season 1 and This Is Us (Original Score) are also available. Released February 2, the score album features 23 original pieces from composer/musician Siddhartha Khosla's compelling score for the show. Released last September, the 20-track Season 1 soundtrack album opens with "Death With Dignity" by Sufjan Stevens, instantly recognizable as a tone-setting music cue from the series' debut episode, and concludes with "This Is Us Score Suite" by Khosla. Also featured is a rare cover version of Peter Gabriel's "Come Talk To Me" by Khosla's critically acclaimed band Goldspot, which has been praised by Gabriel himself, and "We Can Always Come Back To This," the original song composed by Khosla and Chris Pierce, performed by Brian Tyree Henry in Season 1's pivotal "Memphis" episode. The soulful, Stax-inspired song connected with the show's audience, topping Billboard's Blues Singles chart at No. 1 for four consecutive weeks and reaching No. 12 on iTunes' Top 100 Songs chart.

"It sounds simple in theory, but scoring a hit piece of music -- let alone one for a popular TV show -- is the equivalent of capturing lightning in a bottle. The theme music to 'This Is Us' not only captures the emotional tone of the show, but it's timeless enough to go down in TV score history." – Glamour
"'This Is Us' soundtrack hits big emotional notes" – Billboard
