Over two hours worth of Hans Zimmer compositions get a new life on Hans Zimmer LIVE, a forthcoming live double-album commemorating the legendary German composer. Ahead of its March 3rd release, we can hear a reimagined version of “The Last Samurai Suite” today.

Recorded during his 2022 European concert tour of the same name, Hans Zimmer LIVE compiles highlights from the soundtracks to films like The Lion King, The Dark Knight, X Men: Dark Phoenix, Dunkirk, Gladiator, Inception, Interstellar, The Last Samurai, Man of Steel, No Time to Die, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Wonder Woman 1984. Recording took place over the span of 10 nights, alongside Zimmer’s 20-piece band “The Disruptive Collective.”

“I simply wanted to produce the best album,” Zimmer said in a press release. “I wanted to create an opportunity for the music to breathe a little differently, in its own context. For this adventure, I am thrilled to have been joined by the greatest possible team of collaborators.”

Pre-orders for Hans Zimmer LIVE are ongoing, but if you’d rather experience it in person, the composer is also touring across Europe in 2023; head over to Ticketmaster to secure your seats, and see the full schedule below. Also below, listen to “The Last Samurai Suite” and check out the artwork for Hans Zimmer Live.

Earlier this year, Zimmer earned his 12th Academy Award nomination with the soundtrack to Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. He also took a moment during a London performance to praise a young Ukrainian musician who refused to stop playing the main theme to Zimmer’s Inception score when air raid sirens began going off in a Lviv subway station amid Russia’s invasion.
