As I wait to see Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore for the first time, I am eager for any clues to the film’s content — trailers, photos, graphic art from Mina Lima, interviews, etc. Now I can add the soundtrack to my list of preparatory materials for the film.

The composing and recording of this soundtrack was a time-consuming endeavour: It took 33, 3-hour recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios, over a period of 8 months, to nail down the tracks. That is not including rehearsal time for the many musicians, including the London Voices Choir, who brought the music of composer James Newton Howard to life. Howard composed the scores of the first two films in the Fantastic Beasts franchise as well.
