The Star Wars: Battlefront Soundtrack Is Coming To Spotify Tonight
The Star Wars: Battlefront games are finally joining the other EA Star Wars games' soundtracks on Spotify in the next week.
EA’s recent iterations of the Star Wars: Battlefront games have had a choppy history. Despite their missteps in gameplay and monetization tactics, fans and critics alike agreed that Dice’s take on the Star Wars multiplayer shooter nailed the look, feel, and most importantly, the sound of Star Wars. Now, the award-winning soundtracks for both Battlefront and Battlefront II are coming to streaming services and digital storefronts.
Announced via an article from Variety, both soundtracks will be launching within the next week. The first game’s soundtrack will arrive on digital storefronts and streaming services tonight at midnight ET with Battlefront II‘s to follow on February 5. Originally composed by Gary Haab and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Voices Choir, the soundtracks managed to capture the magic of John Williams’ original vision.
The Battlefront soundtracks join the soundtracks for EA’s other two Star Wars outings; Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars: Squadrons, both of which been on streaming services for months at this point. In a comment to Variety, Haab said, “I consider composing the original score for EA’s ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ series one of my greatest accomplishments.” After the news broke, Haab took to Twitter to express his excitement.
Whaaaat!! Well, this just happened. https://t.co/OqesqeUcJV

This news comes after Battlefront 2 saw over 19 Million new players when it was free on the Epic Games Store last week. While Star Wars games have been a mixed bag since Disney entered a 10-year deal with EA, both companies involved have pushed to turn their image around. Between reviving Battlefront 2 and releasing a pair of successful Star Wars games back-to-back, EA managed to restore some goodwill following Battlefront 2’s disastrous launch.
Disney, on the other hand, restructured their gaming label, launching Lucasfilm Games, the new brand for all Lucasfilm-related gaming content. This announcement came hand-in-hand with the reveal of new Star Wars and Indiana Jones games, signaling the end of their exclusivity deal with EA.
