Henry Jackman, the composer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, returned to score the sequel. In July 2015, Jackman said that the industrial elements of the track “The Winter Soldier” from the previous film’s soundtrack were a good indication of what the soundtrack to Civil War would sound like, though he cautioned it was “just a jumping off point since the Russos are looking for something new—similar with a twist.” Jackman ultimately described the final score for Civil War as more symphonic and orchestral than Winter Soldier‘s. A soundtrack album was released by Hollywood Records on May 6, 2016.
