Respawned Records have launched preorders for an orchestral arrangement album of music from Donkey Kong 64 titled “Simian Symphony”.
The release will be available in two variants – a “Banana Hoard” yellow swirl colored vinyl variant, and a “Krusha K. Rool” green splatter colored vinyl variant. Both variants will feature an etching on the D-side. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with new art by GnrtnmArt. It will also include an insert with new artwork.
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.
Fangamer have just announced that they are releasing a vinyl box set containing 41 tracks from the Banjo-Kazooie soundtrack.
The set will have 4 LPs on black vinyl. It will be housed in a slipcase box set with new art by Andrew Kolb with each record housed in a printed jacket. The set will also include a double-sided insert with liner notes by composer Grant Kirkhope. Order placed through Fangamer will include a digital download of the full 164 tracks from the soundtrack.
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.
