Companion album to follow later this summer.
Rockstar Games has announced that in collaboration with Lakeshore Records, it will be releasing a collection of vocal tracks from Red Dead Redemption 2‘s soundtrack next month.
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 soundtrack includes vocal performances by artists such as D’Angelo, Josh Homme, Rhiannon Giddens, Willie Nelson, and an additional track written, produced, and performed by David Ferguson.
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.
