Star Wars Headspace is an album built from “the sounds of Star Wars.
Star Wars is truly back following the smash success of The Force Awakens, so if there was ever a time to create an album inspired by the galaxy far, far away it’s probably now. Rick Rubin has announced he will helm Star Wars Headspace a new album including Flying Lotus, Baauer, A-Trak, GTA, Kaskade, JJ Abrams, Rubin himself, and more due February 19.
Flying Lotus spoke about the album with Zane Lowe earlier today on Beats 1 Radio, describing it as an album of electronic music built from “the sounds of Star Wars”. He explains they were given the entire library of sound effects from the series and were given full creative control, provided they left John Williams’ score alone. He then debuted a new song titled ‘R2, Where Are You?”, which features sound effects from R2D2. Listen to that, alongside new tracks from Baauer and Rubin, below.
