With the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker later this year, John Williams will retire from the Star Wars universe. But before he goes, he’s created an unexpected bonus track for Star Wars lovers — he’s composed the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Suite, the soundtrack to the new Star Wars-branded areas at America’s two Disney theme parks. Though Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge hasn’t opened yet to visitors, the music is available online, playing on YouTube and streaming on several services. As always, the music is vintage Williams, something that Star Wars creator George Lucas says has been invaluable to the success of the franchise so far.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at California’s Disneyland on May 31 and at Florida’s Disney World on August 29.
