1987 Soundtrack – Predator

Predator is the official soundtrack album of the 1987 science fiction film Predator. It was composed by Alan Silvestri. The score is completely orchestral and was released in 1987.

In 2003, Varèse Sarabande released the soundtrack album as part of its limited release CD Club collection; the album also includes the Elliot Goldenthal arrangement of the Fox fanfare used on Alien 3, where the penultimate note of the fanfare freezes and rises in crescendo before abruptly cutting off.
