STAR WARS HEADSPACE Merges Electronic Music with The Sounds of STAR WARS...

Written by

It was incredibly odd and surprising to receive two announcements today about albums that were "inspired by" some heavy-hitting pop culture franchises. While the first was Cybertronian in nature, the biggest surprise was the one from a galaxy far, far away...STAR WARS HEADSPACE. On February 19 digital/March 18 physical, Hollywood Records and American Recordings will release this new collection of electronic music inspired by, and featuring the sounds of the STAR WARS Saga. Executive Produced by Rick Rubin, the 15-track compilation throws down odes on everything from Ewoks to Bounty Hunters, Jabba's Palace to the Mos Eisley Cantina. Check out the tracklisting and a quartet of preview tracks below...
