Music from ‘The Mandalorian’ gets the vinyl box set treatment

(LOS ANGELES) — For fans who can’t get enough of composer Ludwig Göransson’s haunting score for the Disney+ hit The Mandalorian, help is on the way in the form of a deluxe vinyl box set from Mondo. 

Each of the eight 180-gram LPs represents the music in each of the eight episodes of the first season of the Star Wars-inspired series, which was recently nominated for 15 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Music Composition for a Series. 

The $200 limited edition set also includes exclusive artwork from Paul Mann, with the LPs housed inside a slipcase adorned with the Mando’s instantly recognizable mudhorn signet — the skull of a giant rhino-like creature the bounty hunter tangled with in the show.

Pre-orders for the box set — limited to just 3,500 units worldwide — go live this Wednesday at 1 p.m. Eastern time; the box will ship sometime in November.

Göransson, who won a Grammy and an Oscar for his score for Black Panther, is also featured in a segment of the Disney+ Gallery special on the making of Jon Favreau’s groundbreaking series. He’s now working on the score to The Mandalorian’s second season, which should debut in October on Disney+.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
