Back in early March it was revealed that iam8bit would be releasing the soundtrack to the upcoming space exploration game No Man’s Sky on vinyl. Now, however, it turns out that they’re not the only ones as Laced Records have listed a vinyl version of 65daysofstatic’s soundtrack on their website which is up for pre-order now.
The release on their site is titled “No Man’s Sky: Music For An Infinite Universe” and will be a gatefold 180g 2LP with brand new artwork by Caspar Newbolt (note that the artwork on the listing isn’t the actual artwork which is still being made).
Additionally, a 4LP deluxe box set is also up for pre-order.
The 2LP version will include 65daysofstatic’s full OST while the 4LP set will include the OST + 6 soundscapes from the game. Both versions will include an MP3 download for the full OST + soundscapes.
The releases are currently scheduled for a Q3 2016 release and can be preordered from Laced Records’ website. The 2LP version here and the 4LP box set here.
UPDATE: 65daysofstatic have uploaded a track from the soundtrack to Soundcloud. Click here to listen to ‘Supermoon’.
Along with the release date announcement for No Man’s Sky earlier today (June 21 for those wondering) Iam8bit announced that they will release a series of merchandise items for the game – including a vinyl release of 65daysofstatic’s soundtrack.
The album will be released on 2 180g colored records – it appears one is light blue while the other is dark red. The cover art is done by Simon Stålenhag while the gatefold art is by Kuldar Leement.
The album will be priced at $35 and as of announcing it there is no hints on when it will be released.
You can place a pre-order via iam8bit’s US store here and via their UK/EU store here.
UPDATE: iam8bit have stated that they’re aiming for a late-June release. Also – they are now offering media mail on orders from their US store.
You can listen to the track “Debutante” from the album on YouTube.
It appears “Debutante” isn’t on the final album. You can, however, stream the new track “Supermoon” from the OST via Soundcloud now.
