Corinna and the King is the unbelievable true story of a love affair that brought the Spanish royal family to its knees. When Corinna, a worldly and well-connected businesswoman, fell in love with Juan Carlos I, the king of Spain, he seemed too big to fail. Their secret romance stretched across continents, but its unraveling would open a window into a dangerous world of greed, corruption, and crime. Vast pools of hidden wealth; international espionage and conspiracy; scandal, elephant hunting, and unstoppable lust… all tracing back to one of the most secretive royalties in the world.

In this bonus episode of Corinna and the King, we invite you to discover the amazing original soundtrack for the series. This ambitious symphonic, cinematic and experimental musical work included the recording of more than 65 original tracks, in a process that ran right up until the release of the final episode of the series.
Alex García Amat, the composer and an executive producer for the series, explains why and how this soundtrack was made for this podcast in its English and Spanish versions. We'll learn about the creative process and listen to some of the tracks, as well as the first demos and the evolution of some of the songs. It’s a moving, detailed musical journey that takes us from the circus to magical realism; from light and fragility to darkness and threat. A movie soundtrack for a podcast.
