Officially announced by Disney, the latest Star Wars soundtrack to makes its way into the fandom is titled Star Wars: Headspace; and EDM flavored album infused with classic themes and sounds from all over the Star Wars universe. Read on for the details!
“These are the songs you’re looking for!” While not a direct quote, I can’t help but feel that Old Ben Kenobi would have an absolute blast listening to these tunes in his lonely hut out on the dune sea. Maybe they would be a smash hit at the local cantina in Tattooine? While we may never find out how our beloved Star Wars heroes would react to this experimental take on the iconic John Williams score, I can say pretty suredly that the younglings will love them.
While not planned for any film release, Star Wars: Headspace is officially endorsed by Lucasfilm and Disney. Taking themes and iconic sounds form the Star Wars universe and pairing them with the latest and greatest in todays music industry, Headspace invokes the legendary sound of Star Wars while giving them a modern club twist.
