The Star Wars franchise has exploded into film, toys, apparel and theme parks. And now, the force is adding another product to the list: vinyls. A new record with music from the original soundtrack by John Williams — with a futuristic catch — has fans spinning:

When the album begins playing, a millennium falcon and a TIE fighter appear floating above the right side of the album. The display is comprised of 3-D holograms etched onto the soundtrack, a move marketing and product management director Paulo DaCosta describes in a YouTube video as pure Star Wars innovation:

Star Wars fans and vinyl aficionados: May the holographic force be with you.
