‘Ted Lasso’: How Marcus Mumford and Tom Howe Created the Show’s Transatlantic Theme Song and Score

The collaboration between Marcus Mumford and Tom Howe on the theme song and score for Ted Lasso began when star Jason Sudeikis left Mumford “the world’s longest voice note” — something Sudeikis apparently is famous for doing. He asked his good friend (and lead vocalist of Mumford & Sons) whether he’d be interested in teaming with composer Howe to create the music for Apple TV+’s heartfelt soccer comedy. “Thankfully Tom’s become one of my grown-up friends who can actually read music,” says Mumford. “He’s a real musician.” Mumford and Howe spoke to THR about how they came up with Lasso‘s unique sound.

Tom Howe and Marcus Mumford interview: ‘Ted Lasso’ composers

“The message of the show is that the hope is what keeps you going,” reflects Tom Howe about “Ted Lasso.” His musical partner on the series Marcus Mumford continues, “We really leaned into the idea of organic instrumentation and recording everything for real. Comedy shows on TV tend to have a lot of synthetic instruments. We were determined to make it organic. Kind of like an album.” Watch our exclusive video interview above with the two composers.

How Marcus Mumford Came To Pen “Transatlantic” Debut Score For ‘Ted Lasso’ Alongside Tom Howe – Production Value

When Marcus Mumford got the call to pen his first TV score with Ted Lasso, he didn’t answer — at least, not immediately. The Grammy award winner, known as the lead singer of the chart-topping folk rock band Mumford and Sons, was first approached for the project by a friend. “Jason Sudeikis left me one of his infamously long and rambling voice messages. He’s unbelievable at that,” he jokes. “It was on my U.S. phone, which I turn off when I get home [to the UK]. So, I ignored it for three months, accidentally.”

Where are the kids?” Mulligan said, surprised by his cameo. “I left them with the Sons. Couldn’t miss this for the world,” her husband replied, telling her she was going to “smash it” and be “amazing” as the host.
