The 'Master Of None' Season 2 Soundtrack Channels The Spirit Of Dev's Journey
Finally, Netflix's Master of None Season 2 debuted on May 12 with more spot-on commentary and comedy about the millennial experience through the eyes of Aziz Ansari's character Dev. While Season 1's soundtrack was infused with some '90s throwbacks, you'll want to know how to stream the Master of None Season 2 soundtrack in order to enjoy the international and romantic tunes of Dev's adventures in Italy and New York City. On the season release date, the show's music supervisor DJ Zach Cowie tweeted that the official Master of None Season 2 soundtrack will be released on CD, digital platforms, and on vinyl, but did not specify their date of release yet.
"The release features a selection of tunes from the new season (some not available on streaming services!) and we worked hard to make it," Cowie wrote in the tweet. "A killer listen from start to finish."
The second season of the acclaimed comedy series picks up where Season 1 left off: Dev sets off to Italy to learn how to make pasta. Master of None Season 2 provides several homages to classic Italian cinema throughout Dev's time in Italy — and even once he returns to NYC. Naturally, the soundtrack to the second season reflects that with several Italian songs, along with classic tunes to accompany Dev's attempts at online dating, falling in love, and hosting a new food TV show.
