Thanks for the heads up! I'd love to hear this!
Hope it does get released by Sony or another label.

A little more here, and it's part of a longer piece for next year's 50th anniversary of the moon landing:

For those that don't want to be forced into "signing up" just to listen to something on the internet the whole thing is on Giacchino's website. Edit: Opps, guess that's what Pete linked too.

Next month marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 space mission, during which Ohio native Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon. There will be lots of events, TV specials and probably mattress sales in the coming weeks celebrating the milestone achievement.

The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, led by conductor John Morris Russell, is getting in on the action with the new album Voyage, which will be released on July 5 and marks the first "studio recording" made at Music Hall since its massive renovation project was completed.

Voyage, as you might have guessed, contains performances of several space-themed compositions, including music from TV shows (Dr. Who, Lost in Space) and movies like Battlestar Galactica and Galaxy Quest.

On the album, the CSO also performs selections from award-winning composer Michael Giacchino's scores for Star Trek (the 2009 film) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Giacchino also composed the album's title track, which gets its world premiere with the release. Giacchino has EGGO status — he's a Tony shy of EGOT bragging rights and also has a Golden Globe.

In a press release, Giacchino (who won a Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe for his score to the classic Pixar film Up) writes, "I first became enthralled with the space program when my dad showed me photographs that he had taken of the television broadcast of the first Moon landing. I was too young to have any recollection of it, but seeing those photos taken in our family room inspired me to learn more.

"Voyage not only marks the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, but it also honors the men and women who dared to dream for us all."

The beginning went in one ear and out the other, but when the snare drum material and the ending that followed it hit, that's when I took note and it connected with me.

Hey, this is pretty good!

It sounds like something else, but worse. Haha no, but it really does remind me of like a sunnier version of something like Hymn To The Fallen. Has a similar kind of hook. I'm not listening to it right this minute, so maybe that sounds totally crazy. It was pleasant, though.

I really liked this, more than anything I've heard from Giacchino in quite some time. The first half explores some interesting textures and dissonances before the more conventional, but entertaining second half where the composer gets to channel John Williams in full festive mode. It's fun!

Four seconds too long to be downloaded as a single! Grrr.

When the original recording of this made it to youtube last year, Giacchino mentioned that it's a precursor to a longer piece, also commissioned by NASA, for the anniversary of the moon landing. That anniversary is this week -- has anyone heard anything at all about a premier of the longer piece or whether it's still happening?
