Today iam8bit announced that they will be releasing Austin Wintory’s score to the diving exploration game Abzû.
The album will be available as a 2LP set on 180g oceanic blue vinyl and will come with original cover artwork done by Nimit Malavia. As an early preorder incentives orders placed during the Black Friday weekend (November 25th to 28th) will feature a special bioluminescent/glow-in-the-dark cover. Orders placed after that will come in a regular cover – the glow-in-the-dark effect will be the only difference.

The set will be priced at $35 and is scheduled to release in Q1 2017. Preorders will open on November 25th, 2016 via iam8bit’s US store here and their UK/EU store here.

The album “Rayman by Rémi” has been underway for some time, but yesterday a site describing the album as well as showing off some mockups was revealed. Alongside that site was the information that a Kickstarter would be launched today.
The arrangement is done by Rémi Gazel who is also the original composer from the game. The arranged album is described as being a “Jazz/Rock/Symphonic/Electro” album.
For this album Rémi have teamed up with some labels who are very much familiar with game music – Black Screen Records and Data Airlines. Black Screen Records will be handling the vinyl release which will be a 2LP with one record on orange and one on blue vinyl. The vinyl tier is priced at €32 (with an early bird tier at €29).
If the €140,000 stretch goal is met a third 12″ record with electro remixes will be added to the release.
The campaign will run from today and until December 16, 2016. If the campaign meets the goal of €50,000 then backer rewards are expected to ship out April, 2017.
You can back the project now on Kickstarter via this link.
It was teased in a newsletter from BioWare yesterday and now we have it (or at least the preorder)! The soundtracks to Mass Effects 1, 2, and 3 will be getting a 4LP box set release.
The 4 discs will all be 180g and come on a different color each. Disc one will feature the Mass Effect soundtrack on black vinyl, disc two will feature the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack on white vinyl, disc three will feature the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack on red opaque vinyl, and finally disc four will contain bonus tracks from the games on orange translucent vinyl.
The tracklist hasn’t been posted, but due to the length of the soundtracks it must be assumed that each disc only holds a selection of tracks from the full soundtracks.
There are no words on the label working on this (or if this is all BioWare’s own doing).
The soundtrack is expected to release on November 29th, 2016 and can be preordered now on BioWare’s webstore for $100.
A vinyl release of Chuck Ragan’s soundtrack to the indie game The Flame In The Flood have been listed for sale at Ragan’s webstore.

The record is up for preorder now and is scheduled to release on December 15, 2016.
