The John Williams fansite, John Williams Fan Network is reporting that John Williams will be recording the score for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens this summer. This comes via concert producer Tommy Pearson who stated that Williams would be returning to the UK to score the film during the summer. He later clarified that he was assuming the recording would take place in the UK because the production was based there.
The London Symphony Orchestra, who recorded the music for all six previous films, responded to the suggestion that they would be involved in the new film by stating that, "there has been no announcement!"
@MakingStarWars there has been no announcement!

The film is slated to be released in December, so this feels a little early. Previous Star Wars films held their scoring sessions 3-4 months before the release of the film. That being said, it is really exciting to know that will be hearing new Star Wars music from John Williams very soon.
