Steven Universe Soundtrack Volume 2 Releases Tomorrow – Here Are All The Songs!

Let me drive my van into your heart! Cartoon Network just announced the details for the second volume of their Steven Universe soundtrack, as well as an unexpected surprise.

The story was broken by Den of Geek, who got the exclusive scoop on the track list and cover of the album. Not only is CN releasing this soundtrack, but they are also releasing a karaoke album called “Steven Universe: Karaoke” which has instrumental versions of 11 songs.

Check out the song list for Volume 2 below:

1: The Working Dead

2: Sadie Killer and the Suspects

3: G-G-G-Ghost

4: The Distant Shore

5: Ruby Rider

6: Let’s Only Think About Love

7: Familiar

8: Escapism

9: Let Me Ska My Van Into Your Heart

10: We Are The Crystal Gems (Change Your Mind Version)

11: Change Your Mind

12: Love Like You (Reprise)

Ultimately, the soundtrack is less than half of what volume one had on it. However, it does perfectly conclude the end of this massive arc for Steven, as this covers all the songs since the first soundtrack was released.

Here is the track listing for the karaoke album:

1: We Are The Crystal Gems: Main Title (Instrumental Version)

2: Do It For Her (Instrumental Version)

3: Stronger Than You (Instrumental Version)

4: We Are The Crystal Gems: Full Theme (Instrumental Version)

5: It’s Over Isn’t It (Instrumental Version)

6: Here Comes A Thought (Instrumental Version)

7: Love Like You: End Credits (Instrumental Version)

8: That Distant Shore (Instrumental Version)

9: Familiar (Instrumental Version)

10: Escapism (Instrumental Version)

11: We Are The Crystal Gems: Change Your Mind Version (Instrumental Version)

This also coincides with the release of the complete “Steven Universe Season 2” DVD set, which comes out on April 16 (took them long enough)!

Steven UniverseVolume 2 Soundtrack will be available Friday, April 12 for digital download and streaming.

After Epic Season Finale, “Steven Universe” Is Just Getting Started

“Steven Universe” is a favorite here at Nerd News Today, and that season finale from a few months ago still has us rocked. It could have been a series finale the way it wrapped up, but thankfully it won’t be. Many things came to a close but there are certainly some new loose threads hanging around, and that means the show is now free to take a deeper examination of the titular protagonist.

On a recent episode of Cartoon Network’s official Steven Universe podcast, series creator Rebecca Sugar and former co-executive producer Ian Jones-Quartey discussed how the season finale “Change Your Mind” is really a new starting point for Steven Universe as a character:

The thing about Steven Universe is that it’s a coming of age story and this is something that he had to figure out in order to start making decisions for himself. Throughout the show, it’s actually been very difficult to write Steven because he puts others in front of himself and his motivations are so tied in with what he thinks other people want—what he thinks his mother would have wanted, what he thinks the Gems want, and who he’s supposed to be.

This is where we finally break that all down. He can’t be distracted by any sort of “supposed to.” It doesn’t exist for him and he doesn’t have to be what other people want or expect him to be.

Jones-Quartey added:

I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that this specific arc of Steven’s, like “Change Your Mind” definitely makes a definitive statement on Steven and who he is and what he thinks he is and how he feels about it. Moving forward, everything’s going to be different.

No new details were revealed about what to expect from the next season or when it will air. At least we only have less than a year to wait for the Steven Universe movie, which is also still shrouded in mystery.

Steven Universe Comes To “Minecraft”

If you’re a creeper and you’re on the run, you can count on the four of them taking it down! ‘Cause they’re good, and evil never beats them, they’ll win the fight and then go out for pizzas! Okay, the last line doesn’t work the same, but Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe has officially joined the world of Minecraft!

Announced by Mojang, this official Minecraft mashup was released today for Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch. It features some important locations from the Steven Universe cartoon series, as well as music from the show, textures, and 48 skins that include the Crystal Gems, Homeworld Gems, and the denizens of Beach City (including Lion and Pumpkin).

Check out the official video below to see it in action:

I haven’t touched Minecraft in awhile, mainly due to personal time constraints. This looks like the perfect nudge to get me back into it! I wonder if Rebecca Sugar plays Minecraft, and if she does, how hard will she be playing this version?

Rick and Morty Roll the Dice with Dungeons & Dragons in upcoming comic

Announced today at C2E2, IDW, in partnership with Oni Press, is bringing two of the most popular properties in the world, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty and Dungeons & Dragons, together in a brand-new four-issue comic book series. Taking the reins of these two iconic properties is the superstar creative team of writers Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward) along with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).

Debuting this August, the mini-series will throw Rick and Morty into a high-fantasy adventure blended with the wit, humor, and intelligence the show is widely celebrated for.

“I love Rick and Morty with a powerful love, and I’ve played D&D since the 5th grade,” said Patrick Rothfuss. “So when they approached me about writing a story with both of them together? That’s some serious you-got-chocolate-in-my-peanut butter $#!& right there. I’m in. I’m all the way in. I’m gettin’ that chocolate all up in the peanut butter. Like, deep in. All the way in. It’s going to be sticky and delicious.”

In this summer’s biggest comic book crossover, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.

“The Dungeons & Dragons crew is letting Pat and I open a Pandora’s Box of insane adventure material and iconic creatures from the granddaddy of all tabletop role-playing games,” said Jim Zub. “I wish I could say we’ll take good care of it, but, the simple truth is, this is Rick and Morty we’re talking about. No fantasy world or otherworldly plane of existence is safe.”

Each issue will feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets, and more! Dungeons & Dragons comics from IDW by Jim Zub are available now wherever books are sold. Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comics are also available where comics and books are sold.
