Liberty Media has commissioned musician Brian Tyler to compose the new theme music for Formula 1 ahead of the 2018 season.

Tyler, 39, has worked as the composer of a number of notable Hollywood films in the past including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, five editions of The Fast and the Furious franchise, Now You See Me, Thor: The Dark World and Power Rangers, and has scored three of the top 10 films of all-time in global box office.

Tyler confirmed he had been working with F1 on some new music in a tweet posted to his account on Friday, calling it "a life-long dream come true".

Tyler has also worked on video games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and wrote the theme for American broadcaster ESPN's coverage of the NFL.

As part of its revamp of F1, Liberty was known to be considering using more music as part of its coverage, potentially incorporated into its over-the-top broadcast service that was announced earlier this week.
