Predator is the official soundtrack album of the 1987 science fiction film Predator. It was composed by Alan Silvestri. The score is completely orchestral and was released in 1987.

In 2003, Varèse Sarabande released the soundtrack album as part of its limited release CD Club collection; the album also includes the Elliot Goldenthal arrangement of the Fox fanfare used on Alien 3, where the penultimate note of the fanfare freezes and rises in crescendo before abruptly cutting off.

In 2010, the same year Predators featured an adaptation of Silvestri's score by John Debney, Intrada Records released the album in a 3000-copy limited edition with remastered sound, many cues combined and renamed, and most notably (as with Intrada's release of Basil Poledouris's score for RoboCop) presenting the original end credits music as recorded (the film versions are differently mixed). This release is notable for having sold out within a day.[2]
