It’s the moment that every lover of the Emmy-nominated series has been waiting for – the highly anticipated track list of the musical numbers included in the Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1, is out. The music behind the Cartoon Network phenomenon, "Steven Universe," created by Rebecca Sugar, has been systematically taking over the world, one original song at a time. Last month, the official announcement of the digital album was made and fans have been patiently waiting for more news ever since.
With over 120-plus episodes, the now iconic theme song, “We Are the Crystal Gems,” and the beloved musical episode entitled, "Mr. Greg," admirers of the show might be hard-pressed to narrow down which songs would make the cut. We now know the album features a selection of tunes handpicked by Sugar for your sweet delight - 37 tracks to be exact. All brought into existence by the clever minds of the show’s creator and the rest of the incredible Steven Crewniverse. The soundtrack includes performances by cast members: Zach Callison (Steven), Estelle (Garnet), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst) and Tom Scharpling (Greg); as well as special performances by renowned guests and even Sugar herself.
“I am so excited about this album that I hardly have the words,” said Rebecca Sugar in a recent press release. “We poured our hearts into these songs and now they’re finally collected and stunningly re-mastered by our composers Aivi & Surasshu.”
Sugar continued, “I cannot say enough about how much I love each of these tracks! But I can say that this is the best they’ve ever sounded! Please blast them! Please sing along! That’s what these are for! If the music of ‘Steven Universe’ has been a tiny piece of the score of your life, please know that I am so honored. I hope you’ll love this album as much as we loved making it.”
Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1 is available globally on Friday, June 2. You can purchase it in digital music stores, as well as on all major streaming platforms.
