Hans Zimmer Composed a Second Dune Score That You Can Download for Free

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (pictured above) is just a few short months away, and with it will come a slew of behind-the-scenes compilations for fans to pick up. One of those upcoming items is a book from Insight Editions, The Art and Soul of Dune, which will provide a look into the concept art and making of the film.

For those with a bit more disposable income, the publisher is releasing a limited edition (for $600), which not only comes with some additional material, but with a score of its own composed by the film’s composer Hans Zimmer. Fortunately, you won’t have to shell out that kind of cash to get access the second soundtrack.

What’s particularly intriguing about this project is that Zimmer has provided an entire score for a book, which The Hollywood Reporter says is a first for him. That soundtrack will be free to stream and download once the film is released. You can sign up to get the download here—you’ll be notified by email when it’s available.

According to THR, “album pairs with the companion books’ extensive chapter-by-chapter look at the filmmaking process.” It joins two other soundtracks for the film: the main score, which will be released on September 17th, as well as The Dune Sketchbook (Music from the Soundtrack), a score that will feature some extended cuts and “explorations” from the main soundtrack. That will be released on September 3rd.

If you want a taste of what the film’s soundtrack will sound like, the studio has already released two tracks from the film.
