The original motion picture soundtrack for the brand new film Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released today on both Apple Music and iTunes. The tracklist includes all of the orchestral highlights from the movie, beginning in what appears to be chronological order with the well-known opening crawl music to the big finale. Composed by John Williams, there are a total of 23 songs on the soundtrack worth about 1 hour and 18 minutes of playback time.

For those without Apple Music subscriptions, the new album costs $11.99 to purchase off of iTunes.

John Williams is amazing. What would my life be like without Hedwig's Theme? Much worse, that's for sure. ;)

Love the original trilogy, love the music. Hate the prequels, love the music from them even more.

I really did enjoy this movie, but something seems rather off after listening to the soundtrack.
Even if it's composed by the legend himself, it's just not as compelling...

As a musician, my 2nd viewing at the cinema was more a listening experience than a visual one, and now ive had the chance to play at home, there is some utterly beeautiful moments in this soundtrack, and some slighty irratating overly brassy ones....but, i forgive him for those purely for the good parts. 2nd part of Scavenger and Rey's theme are lush, almost like a scifi western vibe if that makes sense.
