The Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull soundtrack was released on May 20, 2008 as a soundtrack album to the 2008 film of the same name. Returning to the composition duties is composer John Williams, who wrote and conducted the score to the original three Indiana Jones films, and returning to record the score was the contracted orchestra of Sandy de Crescent: a.k.a. the Hollywood Studio Orchestra.
Like most of John Williams' soundtracks, the tracks are not listed in the order they appear in the film. To listen to the soundtrack in chronological order would go 6, 8, 7, 12, 14, 11, 9, 5, 10, 16, 15, 13, 17, 18, and 19 along with 1 - 4 as bonus tracks heard in concert theme.
The soundtrack debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 39 during its first week. The most popular cue on iTunes currently,[when?] (other than "The Raiders March"), is "Finale".
