Earlier this month, it was the 10th anniversary of Tron: Legacy. Say what you will be about the film (which you can rewatch on Disney Plus), there’s no denying Daft Punk’s accompanying score was killer. And now you can listen to it in a fresh new way. Disney and Daft Punk have uploaded an extended edition of the score called Tron: Legacy – The Complete Edition to Spotify and Apple Music. It features the original score in its entirety and nine additional songs.

As Polygon points out, those tracks aren’t new songs per se; they’ve been available previously scattered about in vinyl editions and the like. However, this is the first time you can listen to them all in one place.

Besides being a standout album on its own, the Tron: Legacy soundtrack came at a time when Daft Punk fans were hungry to hear something new from the group. The French duo hadn’t released a new studio album since 2005’s Human After All and it would be another three years after Tron: Legacy before they came out with Random Access Memories in 2013.

Once you finish listening to the Complete Edition, it’s also well worth checking out Tron: Legacy Reconfigured. Typically, remix albums aren’t worth anyone’s time, but with appearances from heavyweights like Moby, Com Truise, Kaskade and Avicii, this one slays. We’re also pretty sure a certain judgemental AI won’t roast you for listening to the album.
