I wrote my first cue for Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 in August, 2007 and finished scoring the series finale in February, 2009. Earlier this year, I posted a blog entry asking all you fans what you wanted on the album. And, wow, you guys certainly responded!
I kept that blog post handy while I was making my selections for the album. In fact, several of the tracks that made the final cut were ones I wouldn’t have considered were it not for an astute fan mentioning it here on this blog.
Narrowing the selections down to only two discs was difficult enough, but then my entire team and I spent months recording, mixing, editing and compiling that two years’ worth of effort into the ultimate listening experience. I even composed or expanded several pieces specifically for the album, and spent weeks compiling material for the expanded 20-page CD booklet that will accompany each album. And I spent this week at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles, putting the finishing touches on this epic journey, in preparation for a July 21, 2009 release date! (UPDATE: The release date is now July 28th.)
Now, I can finally announce the official album track list and provide a glimpse of the cover:
