Star Wars reentered our collective consciousness thanks to The Force Awakens and now none other than Rick Rubin is set to pay homage to the iconic series — and latest cash cow — with a special compilation. Dubbed Star Wars Headspace, the project features 15 brand new tracks created using the sounds from the movies and includes contributions from the likes of Rubin himself, Flying Lotus, Baauer, A-Trak, Shlohmo, Kaskade and more. Check out a trio of tracks below — premiered via Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio — and look for Star Wars Headspace to drop digitally on February 19 before getting a physical release March 18.
