Kanno and The Seatbelts composed many of the tracks for the soundtrack for both the anime and the movie Cowboy Bebop: Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door. Two of the most memorable are “Tank,” its opening theme, and “The Real Folk Blues,” its ending theme. She’s also known for songs like “Cats on Mars” and “Green Bird.” Kanno produced its soundtrack albums as well.
The Cowboy Bebop Netflix live action show will appear in Fall 2021. An exact date wasn’t revealed. It is also uncertain if the Cowboy Bebop Netflix show soundtrack by Yoko Kanno will eventually be sold separately.
