The soundtrack for the 2020 Netflix adaptation of Rebecca is written by composer Clint Mansell. He has previously written the scores to Black Swan, Pi, High-Rise and Netflix's Black Mirror, and used to be in the alt-rock band Pop Will Eat Itself.


Mansell worked with Rebecca director Ben Wheatley on High-Rise, the 2015 film based on the 1975 novel by JG Ballard, starring Tom Hiddleston.

He also wrote the soundtrack to the 2000 film Requiem for a Dream, which included the iconic theme – performed by the Kronos Quartet and known as 'Lux Aeterna' – which then went on to be reorchestrated for the trailer to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers under the title 'Requiem for a Tower'.
