June 25, 2021
THE BAD BATCH Soundtrack Vol. 1 Out Today from Disney
STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH debuted on May 4, with new episodes releasing each Friday, streaming exclusively on Disney+. The animated series was created by Dave Filoni and is part of the STAR WARS franchise, acting as both a sequel to and spin-off from the series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS. THE BAD BATCH is produced by Lucasfilm Animation, with Jennifer Corbett as head writer and Brad Rau as supervising director.
Award-winning composer Kevin Kiner composed and produced all 37 tracks on Volume 1, which presents music from episodes 1-8. STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH, Volume 2 (Episodes 9-16) is set for release on August 20.
Kiner said, “I hope you enjoy our latest installment of BAD BATCH cues from Season One. BAD BATCH continues to add to some of my favorite themes I’ve written for the STAR WARS universe, most likely because many of these are co-written with my sons Sean and Dean (‘Omega’s Theme’ especially)! Some fun stealth music is in here with a bit of an homage to THE DIRTY DOZEN, or THE GUNS OF NAVARONE. I played the solo guitar viol instrument on ‘Zygerrian Camp.’”
The series follows the elite and experimental troopers of Clone Force 99 (first introduced in the animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch, as they prefer to be called – a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army – each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
