Dawn Treader Soundtrack — Only Available Online?

We hadn’t heard before Tuesday, when the soundtrack for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader went on sale, that it might not be available for purchase in stores. However, it seems that none of our forum members have been able to find it. So we’re curious, has anyone found a copy in a local store? And if so, which ones?

    I just purchased a copy at my local Borders bookstore and they had plenty of them at the shelf. I wouldn't understand if they didn't have the VDT soundtracks for sale in stores…they certainly won't make much profit if it is only available online. Anyways, I had no problem finding mine and am very excited to open it up and listen to it after I see the film. I hope that others can find it, check bookstore near you, I think that's your best bet!

    • Aslie says:

      Quinlin, that isn't true. Alot of people buy soundtracks off of iTunes alot. Like me, I buy most of my music from iTunes because it is easier than buying it from the store, transferring it on to the computer and then placing it on my iPod. I hope they put the VDT soundtrack on iTunes soon. I just checked today and it wasn't there. 🙁

      • narniafreak13 says:

        yeah, when is it going to be on iTunes? i've been checking everyday and its not there.

    • narniafreak13 says:

      Where exactly was this Borders? I really need to hear it!

    • Emgee says:

      Looked at store inventory for Borders online and most local stores say it is 'likely in store.' Same is true for Barnes & Noble.

      Don't think it is in Best Buy stores, just online there. That's where I ordered mine (still waiting for it) with gift cards that I had.
      Disappointed though that the Carrie Underwood song isn't on the CD itself and that I had to go through iTunes to get it.

      I bet you will love the music, after all, I did!

    I bought one yesterday at F.Y.E here in Jackson, TN.

  4. Queen Su says:

    My best friend got one yesterday, but I'm not sure where. I may try to find one this weekend.

  5. Mike says:

    Yes, it's been hard to find. I bought a copy at a Barnes & Noble store in Michigan. They only had one left.

    By the way, the score is awesome!

    • NarniaFan27 says:

      I'm going to get mine at a Barnes and Noble store in Michigan this weekend, too. I'm reserving it online though so I make sure I can get it. But I couldn't even find it on iTunes.

    • narniafreak says:

      I never buy soundtracks in bookstore because they are almost always more expensive. I looked at Walmart, Target, and Meijer and no luck. I also tried Family Christian Store and no luck. I gave up and just snagged it from Amazon!!

  6. I haven't looked yet, but I had wondered…It's a relief to know that some of you have found it in stores!

  7. LittleOne says:

    Right now, it looks like it's only in certain stores. I was able to get a copy yesterday at Barnes & Noble. Perhaps as time goes on, it show up in more places!

  8. NarnianAllTheWay says:

    I haven't been able to find it on iTunes yet…

    • David Sutton says:

      This is the only thing that really matters. I don't care in the least if a single physical copy is sold in any store on the planet. All I care about is buying the CD on iTunes which is the world's largest music seller. The soundtrack is not available on iTunes so I will need to buy it at Barnes & Noble.

  9. QueenSusanJ316 says:

    I just went on Barnes and Nobel and they will hold it at your closest store for three days. NOw all I have to do is pick it up.

  10. NewMillenium says:

    I've been to three different Barnes & Noble's, and they had the soundtrack at all of them.

  11. Ballerina says:

    I looked online on Borders.com and they said at their store in/at
    11745 I H-10 West, Suite 110
    San Antonio, TX 78230
    the soundtrack is "likely in store". Maybe? Anybody who lives in San Antonio, maybe you can go check out the store and see?…

  12. LB says:

    My friend bought hers and mine at Barnes and Noble, and we live in Florida. 🙂

    • LL says:

      Yup! Thank you Barnes and Noble!

      • Annabeth says:

        I'm going there tomorrow! (unfortunately, that's why i can't see VDT on the day it comes out 🙁 🙁 🙁 ) oh well, maybe B&N will be all Narniaified. like with the whole "read it before you see it" thing.

  13. Caspian says:

    Found one at Hastings. But that was after going to four other stores with no results.

  14. well, I have one on order from my local Christian book store…..should be in by saturday……we shall see!

  15. Aslan's Meadow says:

    I talked to a person working at a Wal-Mart in Michigan. She said others were asking…so they were hoping to get it in, after a few days.

  16. PrinceCor says:

    Bought the album yesterday at our local FYE store here in AL.

    • Scarlet13 says:

      What city is it in? and How much? Cuz I went to walmart yesterday(in Alabama) and they didnt have it 🙁

  17. Malfhok says:

    I'm just wondering why I can't find it as a download.

  18. narnian resident says:

    it looks like its obviously at big book stores like Barnes and Noble and Borders, which makes perfect sense. i need to let my parents know now before they sell out so they can get it for me for Christmas (its on the wishlist :-D)

  19. 7chronicles says:

    We just bought it!!! At Borders, in Arizona!

  20. Nyetwerke says:

    I bought mine at Borders but am wondering where all the vocal tracks are which appeared in the videos? Are these available online?

  21. georgiehfan says:

    i got mine at borders for $13.00

  22. David Sutton says:

    Why can't I find it on iTunes?

  23. starkat says:

    I've hit Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and Lifeway Christian Stores. Didn't find it at any of them, but when I tried B&N online, all of the local ones said they had it in stock. I ended up ordering it off Amazon.

  24. Aravis Tarkheena says:

    They have it at Borders. It's a new release and "on sale" for like $13 instead of $15. The CD is kind of small though, not like PC at all. It has more tracks, but they are shorter. The included booklet has barely any pictures/notes in it, which was disapointing. I miss Harry Gregson-Williams too *sniff*.

    • Annabeth says:

      you and me both, you and me both…
      why did he have to leave just when they were making the best one?

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        cause this new music composer has a long standing partnership with th new film director. i am bummed, i like hgw's music way better , and it wrecks the continuity

  25. Edmund Pwns says:

    in australia, i haven't seen any trace of it whatsoever. there's nothing on itunes australia, not even carrie underwood's track. stan walker's track is there, but it's a part of his second album which released earlier this year. it's not in stores either. come to think of it, i haven't seen any of the narnia soundtracks in stores. or the harry potter soundtracks. 🙁
    douglas adams' theme is nice, but nothing can beat harry gregson-williams.

    • Annabeth says:

      you're righ, no one can beat Harry Gregson-Williams.
      fyi- i was on the amazon website yesterday and the HP soundtrack was avalible there….it all depends on how much u want it, tho, because sometimes amazon over prices stuff.

      • Edmund Pwns says:

        yeah it does. my dad would never pay for it. he thinks buying movie soundtracks is ridiculous. so i'm waiting till i get a job.

  26. Im hopeing that I will be getting it today at BN.

  27. Hope they have it.wish me luck.Please??

  30. Ali says:

    Well they are selling it in France…

  31. April says:

    Found mine at Barnes and Noble in Springfield IL I did the pick me up thing online it's pretty handy. and they had 3 or 4 left on rack.

  32. QueenSusanJ316 says:

    Just got it and going to listen to it, although I think I will miss the songs at the end I needed it for my lion party! Only two more days until I see the movie!

  33. Aravis17 says:

    I walked into Best Buy (in Virginia) the day it was supposed to be released and there was nothing. They had the Tron Legacy soundtrack but no Narnia (which was odd to me since Tron hasa later release date). I went on Best Buy's website and typed in "Narnia" under the Music category and clicked "David Arnold" and found it (I previously searched their site for "Dawn Treader" under Music and found nothing.)

    I ordered it straight away with my gift card. Now that I know stores are unreliable in stocking merchandise, I'm asking everyone for gift cards this Christmas. Online shopping sometimes is a must. (I would have looked at B&N but I had zero cash, just the Best Buy gift card at the time.)

  34. CharmedForever says:

    It is available in Toronto at HMV.

  35. xeran says:

    I just got it in Hong Kong at HMV

  36. Jenn says:

    I looked at Walmart but no luck. But FYE had it in PA. But it's like the others say, about 20 dollars which I didn't get. I would have gotten it on Amazon which is nearly 12.50. Christmas present maybe.

  37. Anon says:

    Is anybody else bothered by the fact that although there are thirty songs, most of them are only a minute or so long?

  38. Pepper Darcy says:

    Wal-mart *said* they were getting it next week. But I bought it from Amazon Tuesday– sorry Walmart! Sometimes you stink! 🙂 Sometimes! 🙂 So, I am DYING to listen to it! 🙂

  39. Magical Caprice says:

    I found the soundtrack at my local Barnes & Nobles in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was on sale for $13.99.

  40. REDROBINS007 says:

    HMV sell it I bought mine today! (UK)

  41. Josh says:

    Well I just checked my local Barnes and Noble and they are not in stock…The nearest one is 35 miles away…come on people!!!

  42. carissa says:

    i have a soundtrack of narnia voyage of Dawn tredar,sadly there is no songs on there just background music

  43. carissa says:

    i must say the background music is worth listening to

  44. AsbelMcTalisker says:

    Just saw the music CD for sale in Edinburgh on December 10th.
    Price £9.99.

  45. Alambil and Tarvis says:

    I always buy soundtracks from either Borders, Barnes & Noble, or F.Y.E. You're pretty much guaranteed to find a new album if you go to F.Y.E. since they have practically everything.

    Although I don't get why "There's A Place For Us" isn't on there…is there going to be an "Inspired By Narnia" CD like there was for LWW?

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      no there won't be. although i think its rude the closing song by carrie underwood isn't on this cd, i dont want a separate down load, after i listen to the cd i have to go to my computer to dig up one song?

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      man, i wish the had brought harry gregson williams back : (

  46. The White Wizard says:

    I want one really, really, really, really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(:(:(:(:(:(

  47. sgk474 says:

    In UK I bought movie tie-in paperback from ASDA and it's also available in WS Smith. I bought the Soundtrack from ASDA online today – hope it comes soon…

  48. FrecklefaceJill says:

    My friend got one from FYE, (in Virginia), and it was twenty bucks. I'm going to wait until I get Christmas money and it goes on sale…..Good luck to y'all getting your soundtracks!
    (I usually don't jump at music DVDs, I don't have MP3 or ipod, just a cD player in my room, the only two CDs I have are the LWW soundtrack and the PC soundtrack…..) 🙂

  49. FrecklefaceJill says:

    Edit: 21 bucks.

  50. Clive Staples Sibelius says:

    The soundtrack IS being sold in stores. I saw a few copies in the local Hastings store yesterday night.

    my real question is this: was the soundtrack completely played by a program, rather than a live orchestra? Usually the orchestra gets second billing after the composer. But I didn't seen any listed on the soundtrack. So sad…

  51. Josh Smith says:

    I ordered mine online from Barnes and noble…no shipping charges….Ordered it Saturday night, received it tuesday. Gonna be a stocking stuffer for my daughter. love the album artwork!!

  52. Jamil Johnson says:

    I had been looking for "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" soundtrack on the U.S. iTunes Store also. But recently, I looked for it, and I actually found it. If you search in iTunes by the composer, David Arnold, it should be a lot easier to find the album. If you want the Carrie Underwood Song, "There's A Place For Us" to go with the soundtrack, you can buy this single and then put this song into your playlist with "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" soundtrack. That way you will have one playlist with 31 songs. I hope this helps!

  53. Rachel says:

    In the UK you can find it in HMV. I've seen it a lot but haven't got round to buying it yet.
