The original album was released to accompany the film (May 4, 1999). This release was certified platinum in the U.S. and gold in the U.K., containing 17 tracks from selections of the score, meant to stand alone as a separate listening experience and not as one hears the score in the film.
John Williams edited each track to present the score as one would hear it in a concert suite. Recorded in Abbey Road studios over a week, starting on February 10, 1999 performed by the London Voices and London Symphony Orchestra, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was the first Star Wars score Williams had composed in more than 16 years. The scores of the following two films would rely heavily upon tracking from this score, a decision that Williams and George Lucas had made early into production of the film.
"Once again, John Williams has exceeded my expectations and produced a lavish, rich, moving and thrilling score. Every fan of Star Wars — and of great music — is in his debt," said George Lucas.
