“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” Soundtrack Released in Full

Last week, we got a glimpse into what to expect in the long-awaited Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore when two tracks from the soundtrack were released: the title track and another called “The Room We Require.” Now the soundtrack has been released in full, revealing a total of 39 tracks, which you can listen to online, buy through Amazon Music, or purchase on CD.

The soundtrack was written by Oscar-nominated composer James Newton Howard, who also wrote the scores for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. In a short clip, Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) describes the music from Secrets of Dumbledore as “really incredible.”




You can listen to the soundtrack in full on YouTube, as well as discover the names of each track within the description.




Secrets of Dumbledore was released in the United Kingdom on April 8. For those who live elsewhere and are still waiting on the release date in their country (April 15 in the United States), listening to the soundtrack and checking out the track names would be a good way to build up your excitement and curiosity.

As you look through the list of track names, there are certainly a few that stand out and make us wonder what they allude to. Some of the names we can take guesses at; we assume “Manticore Dance” will play during the scene with the crab-like creatures Newt is seen imitating in the film’s trailer. “The Room We Require” must refer to the Room of Requirement, which we’ve seen several times in the Harry Potter films, so it will be interesting to discover what exactly the characters of Fantastic Beasts require from the room.

Other track names such as “Same Blood,” “Family History,” and “The Twin” perhaps point toward discovering more about the Dumbledore family, the family’s past, and what the connection between Credence and the Dumbledores is. Does “Young Man’s Magic” refer to the magic of Credence, or does it suggest flashbacks or memories of an even younger Albus Dumbledore or Gellert Grindelwald?

The score points toward lots of energy and action, with track titles such as “Assassin!,” “The Escape,” “Surrounded,” and “Case Chaos,” and which characters are being referred to in the tracks titled “He Sought to Kill and I Sought to Protect” and “I Was Never Your Enemy”?

Listening to this soundtrack is sure to get you excited if you haven’t watched the film yet. With the occasional nostalgic nod back to the Potter films, the powerful score is recognizable as being part of the Fantastic Beasts series, presenting the film as dark, mysterious, thrilling, wonderous, and of course, magical.
