"Digital exclusive streaming"? So you can't even purchase a downloadable copy?
F*******CK

Well this is an interesting wrinkle in the "where things might go in soundtrack releases" conversation.

Seems to be following what Disney did with The Mandalorian - as you can listen to the music from each episode on Spotifyetc.

John Powell posted in the comments that it WOULD be available to purchase as a digital download.

The press blurb specifically describes it as "original/unedited music ... [as written for the film]." That can go a couple of different ways but hopefully it's not a PHANTOM MENACE: Ultimate Edition situation. The boon and the burden of streaming is that the conglomerates can make content available on the cheap that they'd otherwise keep locked up, but at the same time they can dump a lot of content on the cheap without curating it.

Amazing and out of left field! Was that Imperial March cue Powell’s or tracked? Wonder if any tracked bits will make it onto the deluxe.

Excellent behavior from Disney Records. Will absolutely purchase.

Rogue One next, please?

Rogue One was recorded in LA with union musicians, so the re-use fees would be pretty pricey. Solo was recorded in London.

Exactly what I was gonna say.


And Powell's team negotiated to get this released for nearly 2 years before Disney agreed, so it wasn't THAT easy ! lol

Thought it was rather odd that Powell would get a complete before Williams but that makes perfect sense. Oh for the days of the LSO!

I'm not a fan of digital only but I will be buying this just to show Disney there is an interest in these types of things so that hopefully more will come in the future.

Keep in mind that every single time he writes that, it won't prevent him from downloading it illegally... !

And this is why record labels don't want physical CDs editions anymore.....
Don't buy this digital ShitTunes.

So long as this isn't like Phantom Menace UE I will be buying it. With John Powell involved I expect it will be done right.
However I dont entirely trust Disney to make this available outside the US. If they do I'll add my support in the vain hope that it shows there is a market and we might be able to get deluxe editions of the other 10 Star Wars scores done right.

You mean that for whatever reason it would be so much more expensive than STAR TREK BEYOND from the same year and also recorded in L.A., which got Deluxe edition released years ago?

It is my understanding that Paramount was able to negotiate special pricing for those releases with the union.

I couldn't possibly tell you if Disney could do the same for Rogue One (and the Williams' sequel scores) or not >shrug<
