Westworld: Season 1 (Music from the HBO® Series) is a two-disc, 34-track soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi for Season 1 of the show. Composed, performed, arranged and adapted by Djawadi unless otherwise noted. Many of the songs are piano or period-themed covers of modern songs, almost all of the music does not fit into the time period of the old west, perhaps underlining the artificiality of Westworld park and its inhabitants.

The album was released on December 5, 2016, a day after the Season 1 finale.

It should be noted the soundtrack, whilst it's quite extensive, does not contain all pieces from Season 1 of the show.
