Co-creator Alex Kurtzman discussed Russo and Discovery music in the official release saying:
“Grand, glorious, hopeful, heartbreaking, intimate, bittersweet, tense, soaring, surprising. Over 51 years, in its many iterations, there’s been no shortage of adjectives to describe the music of Star Trek. On the other hand, the list of composers capable of capturing them all is short, and this is where Jeff Russo comes in. Jeff manages to hold each note in beautiful balance, evoking the nostalgia of Alexander Courage’s original theme while scoring Discovery with his own unique ear and heart. We’re lucky to have him, and we hope you’ll love his music as much as we do.”
Composer Jeff Russo’s also was quoted in the release, saying:
“The producers and I talked a lot about telling this story from an emotional point of view. Relationships play a big role in this incarnation of the series, so trying to be true to that and create themes that connect characters is important.”
In September CBS released this video showing Russo recording the show’s main theme:
