Steven Universe Soundtrack Available Worldwide From 2nd June
Due to popular demand and requests from the loyal Steven Universe fanbase, Cartoon Network has announced today (12/04/2017) that they will be releasing a digital album featuring a selection of songs from the show’s soundtrack entitled “Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1”.
From Friday 2nd June, Steven Universe fans throughout the world will be able to buy the digital album or listen to the album on major music streaming services. The album features a collection of songs picked by Rebecca Sugar, the show’s creator, with songs written by the Crewniverse (the nickname for Steven Universe’s production team) and composed and remastered by the music duo – Aivi & Surasshu. Just like the show, the songs on the album are performed by the show’s voice acting cast, Zach Callison (Steven), Estelle (Garnet), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst) and Tom Scharpling (Greg) as well as performances by special guests and by Rebecca Sugar herself.
Steven Universe, the show’s titular character, is a cheerful young boy who lives in the fictional town of Beach City with the “Crystal Gems” – Pearl, Garnet, and Amethyst, a team of three gem-projected aliens with special powers who have rebelled against their homeworld to protect Earth. Steven himself is half-human and half-gem, inheriting his powers and gem from his mother – Rose Quartz, Steven soon learns how to use his powers properly and helps out the Crystal Gems during their intergalactic adventures.
A full track listing of all the songs has not been announced yet, but Cartoon Network UK will post more information about the album on social media closer to the release date. Also this summer, Cartoon Network UK will be airing new episodes of Steven Universe.

Steven Universe, hailed for its voice of inclusion, follows Steven, the “little brother” to a team of magical guardians of humanity—the Crystal Gems. Steven may not be as powerful as the Crystal Gems. Or as savvy. And he may not have much control over his powers. But that doesn’t stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and somehow finding a way to save the day. New episodes of Steven Universe will air on Cartoon Network in the UK this summer.
