Listen to the orchestral version of Kanye West's “Runaway” from Westworld

Kanye West’s world.

February 08, 2018

A new trailer for Season 2 of HBO's Westworld premiered during the Super Bowl, featuring a lovely orchestral version of Kanye West's "Runaway," off 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The version was created especially for the preview, the show's composer Ramin Djawadi told Pigeons and Planes, as the request of co-creator Jonathan Nolan.


"I had a lot of fun working on reimagining the song. It is always tricky to reduce a song with multiple layers in to a single instrument," Djawadi said. "I'm a fan of Kayne's music. It would be fun to cover 'Can't Tell Me Nothing.'"
