Today’s The Mandalorian episode marks the half-way point of the season, and to mark the occasion Disney has released the digital soundtrack for Chapters 9-12.
Last season, fans were treated to a digital release of The Mandalorian‘s soundtrack in the week following an episode’s release. That hasn’t been the case this season, leaving fans wondering when they’d be able to listen to those sweet, sweet musical renditions.
Today, Lucasfilm has delivered. Volume 1 (Chapters 9-12) has launched digitally on a number of services, which you can find HERE. Even better, they’ve announced the second Volume of the soundtrack, combining the last four episodes of the season, will launch on December 18th.
Walt Disney Records releases the digital soundtrack from Season 2 of “The Mandalorian,” Lucasfilm’s multiple Emmy-winning live-action series, streaming exclusively on Disney+. The Mandalorian Season 2, Volume 1 (Chapters 9-12) digital album features score by Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winning composer Ludwig Göransson (Tenet, Black Panther).
Earlier this year, Göransson won his first Emmy for “The Mandalorian” “Chapter 8: Redemption” in the Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score) category. For the first season of “The Mandalorian,” Göranssonreleased eight full-length albums, one album per episode, with recurring themes throughout the season. This season, he will release the soundtrack in two volumes containing new musical themes, sounds and ideas.
The score and character themes feature instruments played by Göransson including the bass recorder, woodwinds, drums, guitars, piano and percussion. The organic elements from those instruments are then infused with tech sounds and a cinematic orchestra.
