Studio Ghibli Adds Catalogue of Soundtracks to Streaming Services

Music fans, rejoice! Studio Ghibli has released 38 soundtracks from its celebrated anime films across several major streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and YouTube Music, though some regions are only displaying a limited number of songs. Hypebeast reports that, in total, 693 tracks from 23 Studio Ghibli films, excluding 1988's Grave of the Fireflies for which the studio doesn't control the rights, are now available across these popular streamers, delighting many listeners around the globe. [ignvideo url=""] By making Studio Ghibli's music widely available, more people can now be transported to the whimsical worlds of the studio's beloved classics, including the likes of Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, and My Neighbor Totoro. In addition to its catalogue of compositions, Studio Ghibli has also compiled 15 "image albums", featuring music inspired by characters and moments from its films such as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Porco Rosso. [ignvideo url=""] This news comes shortly after Netflix added its first wave of Studio Ghibli films to its service for subscribers outside of North America and Japan, with the next batch of titles set to be released on March 1, 2020. Elsewhere, HBO Max previously announced that it had acquired US streaming rights to Studio Ghibli's famed body of work, which will be available to stream on their new platform when it launches in Spring 2020.
