Studio Ghibli has released soundtracks from its celebrated films across major streaming platforms, for the first time ever. This is the Japanese animation studio's latest move in an effort to make its canon more widely available online.
Soundtracks from 23 Studio Ghibli films, representing the studio’s entire body of work with the exception of 1988’s Grave of the Fireflies, have been made available on streamers Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and YouTube Music. The albums include music from cult favorites Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and My Neighbor Totoro.
In addition to the films' soundtracks, the studio has also compiled 15 “image albums”, featuring music inspired by Studio Ghibli, making a total of 693 tracks. You can stream the full Studio Ghibli soundtrack collection below.
Until recently, the legendary Japanese animation company had long been averse to streaming. Studio Ghibli announced that it would make its full filmography available online just last year, with its catalogue arriving to Netflix earlier this month.
