Super producer Rick Rubin (the man behind Kanye’s Yeezus and a trusted Adele advisor), has assembled an all-star team for the ultimate The Force Awakens compilation album. The collaborative work, dubbed Star Wars Headspace, sees contributions from Flying Lotus, Baauer, A-Track, Roksopp, Kaskade, Shlohmo, Rustie, and more.

The music makers have turned the sounds of Star Wars into a mega dance album. Rubin et al were given complete access to the film series’ sound archive. Yes, Darth Vader’s labored breathing makes an appearance, and apparently an effective melody.

Star Wars Headspace was announced today on Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio show, and so far three tracks have already been debuted: “R2 Where R U?” by Flying Lotus, “Cantina Boys” by Baauer, and “NR-G7” by Rick Rubin. The rollout continues. Listen to the releases so far, below.

Star Wars Headspace will be released digitally on February 19, and in physical formats on March 18.
