Hey guys, it’s Hasan Minhaj.
So many people have been
asking us about our theme song.
“Are you gonna put it up on Youtube?
On Spotify? On iTunes?
Is there an album?
Who composed the music?”
This is a fun fact:
Ludwig Göransson actually
composed the music.
If you don’t know about Ludwig,
Ludwig is an Oscar and
He has produced for
Childish Gambino, Chance
the Rapper, Vince Staples.
He did the soundtrack for Black
Panther, Creed, so many movies.
I reached out to Ludwig, and I was like,
“Yo, let me hop on the track.”
And he was like,
You know, I have musical dreams.
And I wanted to share
something with you guys.
I actually wrote original lyrics
to the Patriot Act theme song.
I’ve really devoted myself to the craft.
I’m serious, I’m a musician.
I’ve been vibing off of coworkers.
I’ll spend hours in the morning
I was working really,
really hard on the lyrics.
If you think I work hard on the show,
doing these comedy book reports,
you have no idea.
So here are the original lyrics,
to the Patriot Act theme song,
written by yours truly.
Sorry. Hold on.
And that’s the track.
Poured my heart into it, and um,
I just wanted to share it with you guys,
ultimately I sent it to Ludwig,
and he never got back to my email.
We mixed it, we mastered it,
we sent it to Netflix and they were like,
“This is super distracting,
please don’t put it in the show.”
But, I feel like the
streets needed to hear it,
so there ya go.
Feel free to record your own cover.
Put it on Youtube, put it on IG,
I’ll hit you with that ‘like,’
and keep living your dreams.
