Sony to release Hybrid’s Driveclub soundtrack on vinyl

Seemingly out of nowhere several listings have appeared for a vinyl release of Hybrid’s soundtrack to the PS4-exclusive racing game Driveclub.

The soundtrack is comprised of Hybrid’s original tracks from the game along with several remixes by acclaimed electronic musicians such as Fuck Buttons, DJ Shadow, Photek, and many more.

The release will be on a double LP on red colored vinyl. It is being handled by Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe and is scheduled to release on September 30, 2016.

It is expected to be available from a range of European record stores as well as select US ones (where it will be available as an import title).

And there’s more new announcements from iam8bit today as Double Fine just announced that the two of them have partnered up for releasing Peter McConnell’s soundtracks to Psychonauts and Broken Age on vinyl.

The PAX exclusive Psychonauts release will be a single LP on “brain splatter” colored vinyl with artwork by Lunar Saloon.
The PAX exclusive Broken Age release will be a 2LP release in a gatefold jacket with one record on “Vella” pink and “Shay” blue marbled vinyl with artwork by Nathan “Bagel” Stapley.

Both PAX releases will be limited to 500 copies and include both a game download and a download for the digital copy of the soundtrack.

This post will be updated as soon as there are more news available on the non-exclusive variants.

iam8bit will be releasing the Undertale soundtrack later this year

They’ve been teasing “Annoying Dog Day” for a couple of days and now it all makes sense – iam8bit just announced that they are releasing Toby Fox’ acclaimed Undertale soundtrack on vinyl later this year.

The release will feature brand new artwork by Drew Wise (see below) and will be a 2LP in a gatefold jacket. One LP will be on ‘pacifist’ blue while the other is on ‘genocide’ red. As a bonus it also comes with a “Monster Kidz Word Search” insert as well as a download of the full digital soundtrack.

And as an extra bonus – those who preorder the release before September 5, 2016 will receive a limited 7″ on clear vinyl with an “annoying dog” print on the b-side. The 7″ naturally includes the “Annoying Dog Song” from the game.

The album is priced at $35 and is scheduled to release in Q4 2016 and can be preordered now via iam8bit’s US store here and their UK/EU store here.

The soundtrack to LISA: The Painful RPG can be preordered now

Back in February Ghost Ramp announced in an interview with PCGamer that they will be releasing the soundtracks to LISA: The Painful RPG as well as Crypt Of The NecroDancer. Yesterday Ghost Ramp tweeted that they would open preorders for LISA: The Painful RPG today – and now that time has come!

The game was developed by Dingaling and the soundtrack was composed by Widdly 2 Diddly – both which are aliases for Austin Jorgensen. The release comes in 3 different variants – a special edition with 2LP picture discs that includes an enamel pin and an embroidered character patch, a regular 2LP picture disc version and a 2LP version with one disc on red/black split and the other on blue/black split color vinyl. The packaging for all three versions are identical and features brand new artwork by Karsten Schreurs (see below).

The soundtrack is priced at $50 for the special edition, $40 for the picture disc, and $35 for the colored version. It is scheduled to release on early October, 2016.

Preorder via Ghost Ramp’s online store here – special edition 2LP picture disc, regular 2LP picture disc, and 2LP colored variant.

David Earl’s Headlander Soundtrack will be released on vinyl

Very little detail on this, but it’s confirmed in the music video description to David Earl’s track “Methuselah” on YouTube that the soundtrack to Double Fine’s Headlander will be given a vinyl release:

‘Methuselah’ from the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available now on Steam, coming soon on vinyl!

No word on what label will release it (or if Double Fine will handle it themselves like they’ve done with Brütal Legend and Dropchord in the past) or when it’s scheduled to come out other than “soon”. I will update this post when more info is out, but in the meantime you can enjoy said music video below:

Spacelab9 to release “Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd” picture disc

In a newsletter sent out today Spacelab9 announced that they will be releasing “Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd” as a picture disc LP.

Jesper Kyd scored Assassin’s Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, and all four titles will be featured on this compilation LP.

It’s unclear if this is one of the vinyl releases that was announced by Sumthing Else Music Works last year. Sumthing Else have previously released records on their own, but it sounds likely that they are collaborating with Spacelab9 for this release.

The release date is currently listed as “TBA soon” and I will update this post as soon as more is announced.
