A Star Wars album featuring Flying Lotus & Rick Rubin anyone?

For some reason, Rick Rubin has got together a whole load of artists for a compilation based on Star Wars’ sounds archive that is called Star Wars Headspace.

The musicians were given access to the Star Wars archive with the only stipulation was that they were not to sample any John Williams.

Flying Lotus, Baauer, Royksopp, A-Trak, Claude Von Stroke, Shlohmo and Rustie are among the artists who made tracks for the release, out next week.

Three of the tunes were debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show yesterday.
