Companion album to follow later this summer.
Produced by seven-time Grammy Award winner Daniel Lanois, The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Soundtrack features music that was created exclusively for the Western-themed open-world adventure game.
Lanois said: “Red Dead Redemption 2 provided a terrific compositional space, vast and covering a range of emotional textures – a real place for my imagination to run wild.”
The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Soundtrack is available to pre-order now from iTunes ahead of its digital release on 12th July.
Two tracks from the album will be available to download once the soundtrack pre-order has been made: “Crash of Worlds” by Rocco DeLuca and “Table Top” by Daniel Lanois (both currently available to stream on Spotify).
“I had a great time reuniting with Lanois to compose for this project, and I’m incredibly grateful to see how the ‘Crash of Worlds’ chant has touched the hearts of so many players through the game,” DeLuca said.
A companion album composed by Woody Jackson called The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score will be available this summer.
During a Q4 2019 earnings conference call, Take-Two Interactive’s chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold more than 24 million copies worldwide.
