NEW RELEASE:
LIGHTYEAR - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK 2XLP
Mondo, in conjunction with Walt Disney Records, is proud to present the premiere vinyl release of Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino's score to LIGHTYEAR.
Michael Giacchino is behind the scores of eight Pixar films, but  LIGHTYEAR stands out as a real labor of love.

“What I’ve enjoyed so much about working on 
LIGHTYEAR is that it’s not just a sci-fi movie ... it’s a sci-fi movie that exists within Andy’s world,” says Giacchino. “I felt that the music needed to embody the love that Andy felt watching Buzz on screen for the first time. The more I thought about Andy in the theater seeing this movie, the more I realized that  LIGHTYEAR is exactly the kind of movie that I would have loved as a kid. So, I tried to inject the music with as much fun and childlike joy as I could, to honor the spirit of kids—like me and Andy—seeing their favorite movies on the big screen for the very first time.”
The original score for LIGHTYEAR was recorded over 15 days with an 89-piece orchestra and a 39-member choir. In the midst of the COVID pandemic, sections were recorded separately in five different groups: strings, piano and harp; brass; winds; rhythm section and percussion; and choir. “LIGHTYEAR is my first Pixar film to have choir,” says Giacchino. “In order to firmly place this score and film within the world of big sci-fi flicks, I felt it was a really important element to have, during Zurg’s theme in particular.” Adds the composer, “The main themes in LIGHTYEAR are for Buzz, the Hawthornes and Zurg. Buzz’s theme is almost always played by the brass, and it’s all about the excitement of exploring space and the nobility of that pursuit. The Hawthornes, Izzy and Alisha, also have a theme, which is more about family and about everything that brings Buzz back down to Earth. As for Zurg, his theme is just big, scary and evil. He’s the ultimate villain.”
“With Michael, you know you’re in the hands of a professional and, honestly, he is so much fun to work with that you can hear that fun in his music,” says producer Galyn Susman. “The themes that he creates have a personality in and of themselves. You hear the theme and realize he’s truly captured the essence of that character.”
