‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Soundtrack: Listen to Michael Giacchino’s Score

Plus, a very scary Easter egg from Spotify.

Star Wars: Rogue One

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”

Lucasfilm 2016

Lauded composer Michael Giacchino may have joined the production of Gareth Edwards’ “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” with a minimum of prep time — he replaced Alexandre Desplat just three months before the film’s release — but his final product is unquestionably a very fine one, and one that fits neatly inside both his own career and the massive franchise the film is part of.

Giacchino’s score is now available online, and it includes such stirring tracks as “A Long Ride Ahead” and “Hope,” along with perhaps more amusingly titled songs, like “Wobani Imperial Labor Camp” and “Krennic’s Aspirations” (which definitely sounds like the name of a kicky jam from a Broadway musical about the striving Imperial bigwig).

If you’ve already checked out the Felicity Jones-starring standalone story, it will likely serve as a fun reminder of some of the film’s best scenes, but if you’ve yet to experience the first anthology “Star Wars” film, beware, even those titles (and the order in which they appear) might hold a few spoilers.

Spotify has now made the entire score available online, along with a very fun little Easter egg. Per Entertainment Weekly, if you’re listening to the soundtrack on Spotify’s site, “as you listen…the play scroll at the bottom of the page becomes a lightsaber. Click that lightsaber, and it changes from blue to green to red.” Bzzzzzzz.

Take a listen to the score below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is in theaters today.
