iam8bit have announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to Grim Fandango on vinyl. It will be the orchestral re-recording that was made for the remastered version of the game.
The release will be a 2LP on black vinyl and comes in a die-cut jacket where you can change Manny’s face by switching around the printed inner sleeves. Artwork for this release is done by Holly Rothrock.
It will be a gatefold 2LP release on 180g “R.O.O.D. Nebula” colored vinyl. One record is red and black merge and the other is orange and black merge. It will feature brand new psychedelic cover art by Lee Petty and will be limited to 2000 copies.
The release is priced at $40 and is scheduled to be released in Q2 2017.
For now all they’ve disclosed is that the two soundtracks will be available at PAX West in exclusive editions limited to 500 each (see images below) and that iam8bit will have non-exclusive versions up on their site soon.
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.
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:
