'Almost Human' Theme Song Composed by J.J. Abrams Debuts (Exclusive Audio)
Fox's sci-fi robot cop drama Almost Human had a solid start Sunday night, but viewers didn't get to see everything the show had to offer.
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts the 45-second theme song for Almost Human, composed by J.J. Abrams (an executive producer on the show created by Fringe's J.H. Wyman), which will make its television debut on Monday evening's episode, "Skin."
The theme complements the premise rather well, featuring a hypnotic, robotic techno beat. Abrams previously composed the themes for Fringe and Alcatraz. (Listen to the Almost Human theme here.)
The news comes several days after it was revealed that The Crystal Method would serve as the show's musical composer. "We got a phone call out of the blue about setting up a meeting," Scott Kirkland told THR about how the group landed the plum gig. "The producers wanted a gritty sound not typical of a TV score."
Almost Human takes place in the year 2048, when an increase in crime requires every police officer to partner with an android. Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby star in the hourlong series.
The show premiered to 9.1 million viewers and a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49 following Fox's Sunday NFL lineup.
