Cartoon Network has responded to fan demand and announced that it will release a digital Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1 album worldwide on Friday, June 2. The collection will feature songs originally heard in the show’s 120-plus episodes, including the iconic theme song “We Are the Crystal Gems.”
Crafted by series creator Rebecca Sugar and the “Steven Crewniverse,” the digital album features re-mastered songs handpicked by Sugar and performed by the Steven Universe voice cast, including Zach Callison (Steven), Estelle (Garnet), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst) and Tom Scharpling (Greg), as well as special performances by guest stars and Sugar herself.
“I am so excited about this album that I hardly have the words. We poured our hearts into these songs and now they’re finally collected and stunningly re-mastered by our composers Aivi & Surasshu,” said Sugar.
“I can not say enough about how much I love each of these tracks! But I can say that this is the best they’ve ever sounded! Please blast them! Please sing along! That’s what these are for! If the music of Steven Universe has been a tiny piece of the score of your life, please know that I am so honored. I hope you’ll love this album as much as we loved making it.”
Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1 will be available to purchase in digital music stores, and on all major streaming platforms. A full track will be revealed in the coming weeks, so keep tabs on Cartoon Network’s social feeds for updates. (Twitter @CartoonNetwork, Facebook /CartoonNetwork, Instagram @CartoonNetworkOfficial.)
