'Star Wars' is getting an official electronic music album

There are many Star Wars-impressed songs and remixes (akin to Meco’s disco variations), however the legendary area fantasy collection is lastly getting one thing official… and also you may need to give it a pay attention. The upcoming Star Wars Headspace will embrace digital tunes which are both influenced by or reworks of the films, most of them from artists you will know should you’re massive on digital beats. The entire thing is produced by Rick Rubin, and there are tracks from Bonobo, Claude VonStroke, Flying Lotus, Kaskade and Röyksopp, amongst others.

The album will probably be obtainable via on-line providers on February nineteenth (in bodily shops March 18th), and you may already pay attention to some tracks now because of clips from Apple’s Beats 1. From the sound of it, this is not a easy money-in — it has strong tracks that simply occur to incorporate droid beeps and Darth Vader’s respiration. Bauuer (Mr. “Harlem Shake”) has an actual banger, whereas Flying Lotus’ signature glitch-hop sound stays intact. We will consider some obtrusive omissions (significantly, Disney, you did not get RJD2 or Jedi Knights to contribute?), however this is perhaps an album you will proceed to take pleasure in as soon as the novelty wears off.
