In great news for fans of Steven Universe ’s musical stylings, Steven Universe Soundtrack: Vol. 1 will be released globally on Friday, June 2.

The one song we know for certain will be on Steven Universe Soundtrack: Vol. 1 is of course the iconic theme song, “We Are the Crystal Gems.” Hum the first few chords on the show floor of any nerd-adjacent convention and you may start a riot, a singalong, or some other kind of unnerving nerd swarm.

The other show that should be on the Vol. 1 soundtrack is “Stronger Than You,” Garnet’s iconic song burning Jasper for being #ForeverAlone and featuring the glorious vocal stylings of Estelle. Since this soundtrack is titled Vol. 1 , it makes sense that a Vol. 2 should follow, so I will forgive the possible exclusion of songs from later episodes like “What’s The Use Of Feeling Blue,” sung by Broadway stage legend Patti Lupone in her role as Yellow Diamond and Lisa hannigan as Blue Diamond.

Plenty of music selections from Steven Universe are available on composers Aivi & Surasshu’s Soundcloud here, with a few more on Jeff Liu’s Soundcloud here as well. But it will be a delight to have all of Steven Universe ’s memorable musical stylings available in high quality from one official source, and it’s also right to support a show one loves by purchasing as much official merch as possible.

In a press release, showrunner and creator Rebecca Sugar said, “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 & Surrasshu.”

“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,” Sugar continued. “I hope you’ll love this album as much as we loved making it.”

Get ready to delight your nieces and nephews and baffle your neighbors as you blast Steven Universe ’s catchy tunes about love, hope and more. Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1 will be available for purchase in digital music stores and on all major streaming platforms with a full track listing coming up soon.
