Banjo-Kazooie ska arrangement LP now available from Respawned

We’re just two days into 2021 and we already have our first release up for order as Respawned are releasing a ska arrangement album for the soundtrack to classic 3D platformer Banjo-Kazooie titled Banjo-Skazooie.

The release will be a 2LP available in two color variants – a “Skazooie” black and white swirl with black splatter variant, and a “Jiggy Jam” yellow translucent with black smoke variant. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork.

It is priced at $35 and is in hand and expected to begin shipping next week. It can be ordered from Respawned Records here. In addition, it is also 10% off for the first 24 hours.

EU customers can also order from Black Screen Records here.

The Battletoads vinyl OST goes up for pre-order tomorrow alongside the soundtracks to Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark

Iam8bit pulled a big surprise move today when they announced that not only will the (previously announced) Battletoads vinyl soundtrack go up for pre-order tomorrow, but it will do so alongside two other Rare soundtracks – Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark.

David Wise’s Battletoads soundtrack will have very similar artwork and the same vinyl color as the SDCC Comic Con exclusive version, but will not have an embossed cover or a sound chip. It will also feature different gatefold artwork.

Grant Kirkhope’s Banjo Kazooie soundtrack will be on 2LP and come one brown and one red vinyl record. Grant Kirkhope, Graeme Norgate and David Clynick’s Perfect Dark soundtrack will also be a 2LP and come on red and blue splatter vinyl.

Update: All three are scheduled to be released in November.

All three releases will be limited to 3000 copies each. See artwork and vinyl colors below.
