A new soundtrack album Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score has been confirmed.
The hugely popular video game remains a phenomenon, with its bluntly realistic evocation of blood-soaked 19th century America overturning preconceptions.
The score has earned massive acclaim, with a second instalment of original material from the game due to be released.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score lands on August 9th via Lakeshore, and it features contributions from Arca, Colin Stetson, Gabe Witcher, and more.
Pre-order it HERE.
Those who order ahead will gain access to three brand new songs: 'Country Pursuits' by Arca and Woody Jackson, 'Outlaws From the West' by Jackson, and 'Fleeting Joy' by Jackson and Colin Stetson.
Woody Jackson comments:
Writing the score for Red Dead Redemption 2 was an incredibly ambitious project and I couldn’t be prouder of the results. We were creating a living soundscape for a wildly diverse cross section of 19th century America.
After all these years working with so many talented people, I can’t wait to share these songs beyond the world of the game.
