Guests who have been on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser have already been treated to the beautiful voice of Gaya, but starting May 4th, everyone will have a chance to experience it.

Here is a track list from the new soundtrack:

  • “New World”
  • “Gaya!”
  • “Hayananeya”
  • “Coaxium”
  • “Poverty of Love”
  • “Rockstar Queen”
  • “Rah Rah Rah” ft. Cassus Yissik
  • “Far From Home” ft. Rebel Bass
  • “Stargate Swing” ft. Lucky Ferrariss
  • “Starlight” ft. Funky Futurists
  • “Nesh Godo” ft. Barūbarū

According to d23.com, each of the songs have a special meaning. Here is how they describe each track:

“Welcome to the New World”
What better song to open with on the Halcyon? “Welcome to the New World” embraces the mystery and magic of new horizons and the connections we all share across the galaxy. Through this song, Gaya creates a powerful connection with her audience. It is both an introduction to and an invitation to join her in… a new world—her world.

“Gaya!”
Gaya makes no secret of her past. She is proud of her roots in the underground and what she’s achieved on her meteoric rise. This may be her namesake song, but hearing her name echo across the galaxy is not about her own fame and fortune. “Gaya!” is a celebration of knowing what you want, facing challenges to get it, and fighting for what you believe.

“Hayananeya”
“Hayananeya” refers to one of Ryloth’s sacred “singing stones.” Twi’lek legend holds that the songs of these stones were intoned to the vibrations of the galaxy itself, and that they held mystical powers of navigation. The singing stones have long been lost to Ryloth’s turbulent history of invasion and occupation. In this powerful anthem, Gaya hears the song of the Hayananeya stone and calls out to it, wishing for its return to its rightful home of Ryloth.

“Coaxium”
While on its surface, it might seem like a song about the fuel that enables hyperspace travel, at its core “Coaxium” is truly about power: who has it, how it’s leveraged, and the ability of power to bring freedom and take you anywhere in life.

“Poverty of Love”
A deeply meaningful song to Gaya, “Poverty of Love” is an intimate look into the shadows just behind the dazzling light of a superstar. From the top, you can see everything—and remember what was lost on the way up.

“Rockstar Queen”
When this song hit the holonet, it took the galaxy by solar storm. A dance craze was born—the Ryloth Slide—that’s easy to learn and hard to resist. No matter how you get around—feet, wheels, or tentacles—“Rockstar Queen” will get you moving. You know you’re a rockstar…now it’s time to show the galaxy.

“Oola Shuka”
Written in Gaya’s native tongue, “Oola Shuka” celebrates her Twi’lek culture. It translates to “Free Yourself,” in a fusion of rhythmic stylings with diverse voices and languages from across the galaxy. It’s a hypersonic hit heard in cantinas from the core worlds to the Outer Rim! If you’re wondering where you’ve heard it before, it’s a favorite of DJ R-3X at Oga’s Cantina in Black Spire Outpost!

Gaya began her live performance off-stage and walked through the crowd towards the stage.

Between each of her songs, she talks about her history and asks guests where they’re from.

Gaya is a Twi’lek from Ryloth, a planet that has been occupied many times. She mentions that the Ryloth Stone, which brought harmony to her planet, has gone missing, and she has been searching for it.

Gaya insists Lt. Croy join the dancing, and Raithe keeps him in the crowd. Is it possible this is all a distraction…?

Captain Keevan and Sammie, the mechanic, then present the Resistance fugitive Chewbacca to Croy.

Croy wants to take Chewbacca away, but Keevan insists Croy stay and continue to enjoy the performance.
