Laced Records bringing the Yooka-Laylee soundtrack to vinyl

Today Laced Records announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to the upcoming platformer Yooka-Laylee to vinyl. The soundtrack is composed by Grant Kirkhope, David Wise, and Steve Burke.

The soundtrack will be released as a 180g 2LP with one record on green and the other on purple vinyl. It will feature original art from Playtonic Games and includes the digital soundtrack as well.

The game itself is out on April 10, 2017, but the soundtrack will be out a few days before on April 7. You can preorder it now via Laced Records’ store (and you can listen to some of the tracks there as well).

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.
