Music from the Studio Ghibli films My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and Laputa Castle In The Sky will feature in a new box set release

Composer and frequent Studio Ghibli soundtrack-provider Joe Hisaishi's themes for the films My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Laputa Castle In The Sky are to feature in a new box set due this summer.

The three scores will be pressed to 7" vinyl for the release which will take in 10 tracks in total. All of the tracks have been remastered from their original tapes and the set will also feature replica cover art while the tracks will be split across five discs and 10 sides of vinyl.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind was Hisaishi's first score for Studio Ghibli, originally released in 1983. He has gone on to provide the soundtrack for almost all of Studio Ghibli and animator Hayao Miyazaki's films since. The box set's release comes after nine Studio Ghibli soundtracks were reissued in full on vinyl last year.

Tokuma Japan Communications will release the set on July 10. You can pre-order it here. Revisit our feature on tQ writers' favourite Studio Ghibli films here.
