Looking for a way to express your love for both the greatest sci-fi movies of all time as well as your penchant for electronic dance music (EDM)?

Hollywood Records, American Recordings, and legendary producer Rick Rubin have got you covered with a new official album, Star Wars Headspace, a compilation of original EDM tracks that have various Star Wars sounds and effects within them.

Sounds hot, right? You can preview three of the tracks thanks to Beats 1’s Zane Low, below.

As you can hear in the Beats 1 clips above, these aren’t cheap cash-grab tracks that put some club beat underneath John Williams’ famous cinematic orchestral score, but rather full EDM tracks from some of the hottest talent out there, like Flying Lotus and Bonobo.

The full track list, including lead track “C-3P0’s Plight” by Kaskade and “Cantina Boys” by Baauer is available over at

You can pre-order the album for $9.99 (and listen to more preview tracks) on iTunes right now, and the full experience should be ready to go on February 19 on all digital outlets and March 18 for physical retail copies.

    The Rick Rubin one is listenable. The Baauer is complete toss and the Flying Lotus thing sounds like something gone wrong. In all, not worth a second listen.
