KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - When the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers square off in Week 2, they’ll do so in the NFL’s first regular season game broadcasted by its new media partner, Amazon Prime.

As Prime Video takes control of the Thursday Night Football package, they did so needing a musical package for viewers to associate with the production. Thursday, they released the musical elements the company hopes will come to be synonymous with football fans’ Thursday nights.

That theme will debut when the Chiefs and Chargers meet up Sept. 15 at Arrowhead Stadium. Prime and the NFL schedule-makers elected to pit superstar quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert against each other following a Thursday-night thriller in Los Angeles last December.

The music was created by composer Pinar Toprak, famous for her musical contributions to ‘Captain Marvel’ and the popular video game ‘Fortnite.’

“It’s finally out!” Toprak tweeted Thursday, upon Amazon Prime’s release. “So excited to share the Thursday Night Football theme with all of you. Thank you to all of the incredible musicians and my amazing team who helped make this music come to life. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!”
