This New 'Star Wars' Music Will Light Your Saber For 'Battlefront'

If there's one thing more iconic than glowing lightsabers in the "Star Wars" franchise, it's Jar Jar Binks gleefully leaping into the placid waters of Naboo following his brisky morning munchy and -- er, wait, no it's the music.

Definitely the music.

When "Star Wars: Battlefront" launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC next week, you'll hear familiar musical cues. But there are also new, original songs composed by Gordy Haab in the style of the classic films.

That's a pretty tall order. John Williams' compositions on the original movies are the stuff of legend -- who isn't familiar with the main title theme of "Star Wars"? 

"As a child of the early 80's, the music of 'Star Wars' made a huge impact during my formative years -- long before I understood anything about composing music. I recall being 6 or 7 years old and playing the soundtrack albums over and over while acting out the scenes from the films," Haab told The Huffington Post.

"So rather than being an arduous chore, composing music to sync up with the classic 'Star Wars' musical aesthetic was quite effortless. As though it had been waiting all these years to just pour out," he continued.

Haab shared some of the new tracks with HuffPost in advance of the game's release on Nov. 17. The first is set on the ice planet Hoth -- which you might recall from "The Empire Strikes Back" -- while the second is based on the rocky planet Sullust. Listen below:
