Need a way to pump up as you head over to your local cinema today to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens on its premiere date? Perhaps listening to the score for the new film, composed by old hand John Williams, might just be the trick.

The soundtrack, which has a one hour and 17 minute run-time and can stream the score on platforms like Spotify and Pandora, was previously unavailable to listen to for fans, all for a particular reason: as Entertaintment Weekly pointed out, unlike the score for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, which was debuted two weeks before the film's 2001 premiere, Disney and Lucasfilm decided to stick to their marketing strategy for the movie itself and premiere it the same day as the film.

So how spoiler-heavy is the score? Not too bad, but a few titles that can clue audiences in to the plot of the film range from ominous to blunt — "Han and Leia," "Torn Apart," and "The Jedi Steps and Finale" to name a few.

A theme for Daisy Ridley's character, Rey, can also be heard throughout the score. The title? "Rey's Theme."

Unlike the score, the music for The Force Awakens in its entirety was not solely composed by Williams: for instance, the music for the new Cantina scene was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the instant Broadway masterpiece Hamilton, in collaboration with director J.J. Abrams.

You can listen to the full recording of Williams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens score on Spotify below.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuts in theaters nationwide Dec. 18.
