Legendary producer Rick Rubin has been allegedly called upon to organize the compilation album 'Star Wars Headspace'. Additionally, Zane Lowe will be debuting material off of the album on his radio show Beats 1 today.

Flying Lotus, Kaskade, Claude VonStroke, A-Trak, Bonobo and GTA are among the wide names on hand to contribute. The album appears to pull inspiration from iconic sounds in the Star Wars universe including Darth Vader’s breathing and R2D2’s bleeps; one of the most fascinating offerings being a re-work of J.J. Abbrams and Lin-Manuel Miranda project Shag Kava by Rick Rubin himself in collaboration with A-Trak.

‘Star Wars Headspace’ is set to be released digitally on February 19 and physically on March 18 courtesy of Hollywood Records and American Recordings. Until then, the tracklist is available below.

01 Kaskade: "C-3P0's Plight"
