All 23 orchestral tracks are streaming as we speak
The entire score to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie has been made available to stream.
The release has been timed with that of the film, which came out yesterday (December 18).
US composer and conductor John Williams – who created the Star Wars franchise’s renowned theme music – is the man behind the soundtrack to The Force Awakens.
The album consists of 23 tracks that add up to one hour and 17 minutes of music performed by a 90-piece orchestra, and on track 17, the theme for ‘Snoke’, Williams used a 24-strong male chorus.

In light of the film’s release, the cast spoke at a press conference on Thursday (December 17), where Carrie Fisher discussed what it was like to work with the movie’s director, J.J. Abrams.
“He was great to work with,” the Princess Leia actress said. “George Lucas was wonderful to work with, but he never spoke really. He just said ‘faster!’ or ‘more intense!’. But [J.J.] talks a lot and it’s really good stuff he says.”
“And he’s got a lot of energy and we didn’t have any energy on the first film. It’s sad, really,” Fisher added jokingly.
Harrison Ford then shared his own thoughts on working with Abrams, saying: “It helps a lot to have someone who gives as much as J.J. gives. This is besides directing… the human kindness that J.J. brings to the set every day is part of what makes the movie what it is.”
