Nicholas Britell’s digital soundtrack for ANDOR: Volume 1 (Episodes 1-4) Available Today
Walt Disney Records has released the digital soundtrack from Lucasfilm’s original live-action series ANDOR, today. The album features music from Britell’s original score from ANDOR episodes 1-4.
The ANDOR series, streaming exclusively on Disney+, explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
Britell says, “I feel incredibly grateful to Tony Gilroy and Lucasfilm for giving me this opportunity and entrusting me with creating the score for ANDOR. Working with Tony on this epic series has been profoundly inspiring. Having grown up as a huge fan of the STAR WARS galaxy, it’s been a thrilling and actually quite emotional experience to become a part of this universe. I’ve tried to create a musical landscape that feels authentic and integral to the story. Tony and I explored every nuance – from crafting the on-camera music, to creating the ever-evolving score, to imagining each episode’s unique variations on the theme.”
Academy Award®-nominated and Emmy®-winning composer and pianist Nicholas Britell is known for scoring DON’T LOOK UP, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, CRUELLA, THE BIG SHORT, and the upcoming SHE SAID. For television, Britell has written the score for Barry Jenkins’ THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD and also scores the multi-award-winning HBO series SUCCESSION, winning an Emmy® for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme.
Today’s Volume 1 release is available at these links, and will be followed by ANDOR: Volume 2 (Original Score) digital album available on November 4 and ANDOR: Volume 3 (Original Score) set for release on December 2.
