Star Trek Beyond and Ultimate Voyage soundtracks

Good news Star Trek music fans, you can already pre-order the soundtrack for Star Trek Beyond! As we already knew, Michael Giacchino will be returning to compose his third Star Trek score, which Amazon are expecting to arrive on CD from Varese Sarabande Records on the same day as the US release of the film, 22nd July.

I've no doubt it will also be available digitally, and who knows, maybe on vinyl too: Into Darkness was the first Star Trek soundtrack to get a vinyl release in a couple of decades, which arrived a few months after the CD and download versions. Both Star Trek (2009) and Into Darkness got complete soundtrack releases some time after the album version too, a trend I hope Beyond will continue with!

Meanwhile if you want some Star Trek music right now, there is a new album featuring all the music from the touring Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage concert. Available via the concert's online shop, the album, and concert, features music representing most of the Star Trek TV series and movies, and even some video games. This is a new recording of the tracks, from the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Justin Freer. Here are the covers:

I picked up the soundtrack at the concert. It's pretty good! I was worried it would have the narration and audio tracks from the multimedia presentation that went along with the concert, but thankful it did not.

I wish I would have bought it at the concert. The music is simply everything.
