The riveting #1 cable show of 2017, nominated for Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards, The Sinner follows a young mother (Jessica Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the “who” or the “what” – but the “why” – as an investigator (Bill Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive. Together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.

This album is a deep dive into the mysterious and captivating musical world of The Sinner – an emotional journey of discovery through a landscape of distinctive electronic rhythms and beats, evolving layers of danger and mystery, and memorable, masterfully orchestrated melodies. The Apple Deluxe edition includes a package of 9 additional exclusive bonus tracks from Kirchman’s score, and a 24-bit WAV version will be available through Lakeshore's Bandcamp site.

Says showrunner Derek Simonds: “I can’t imagine The Sinner without Ronit’s music. She’s a whiz in the studio, a talented multi-instrumentalist who creates singular textures for her compositions, and most importantly, a soulful artist with a deep sensitivity to the subtleties of character and mood. Her work effortlessly expresses both the churning dread and the contemplative, bruised heart of Cora’s journey.”

Kirchman elaborates: “It’s such a pleasure to write for a show where I am asked to create something new and musically innovative, with sounds and themes that feel original and unexpected, while at the same time organic to the story. We want the audience to feel totally engaged, moved, and surprised – and that means coming up with a fresh tool kit and unique signature themes. My hybrid palette for The Sinner incorporates specifically designed electronic elements, sculpted sounds, acoustic instrumental writing with extended techniques, and processing of live sounds. The goal is for the audience to feel taken over by this compelling story.”
