‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ soundtrack details revealed, listen to 5 tracks from the score

Warner Bros. has revealed details about the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald soundtrack, due for release next month. James Newton Howard, composer of the first Beasts film (and The Hunger Games franchise, among others), returns to his musical post.

The score will feature 25 tracks, including three solo piano pieces (performed by Newton Howard) not heard in the film. Those piano pieces are “Dumbledores’s Theme”, “Fantastic Beasts Theme” and “Leta’s Theme”.

Of the opportunity to return to the Wizarding World, Newton Howard said, “to work on Fantastic Beasts is a wonderful musical opportunity … the movie is delightful, substantial, and complex; and [director] David Yates focuses very seriously on the music and is a truly passionate and enthusiastic collaborator.”

The score will be released digitally on 9 November, and on CD on 30 November (preorder it here). A vinyl release is scheduled for next month. Read on to see the track list (beware of plot spoilers!) and listen to five of the tracks.
