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’.
I don’t normally do news posts for Kickstarters as there’s some uncertainty related to whether or not they’ll happen – but this is a big one, so I’m making an exception!
Ever since the release of the game, the Hotline Miami soundtrack fans have requested that the soundtrack receives a vinyl release. And the demand and interest only increased after the game’s sequel received a vinyl release last year.
Now it can finally happen! In collaboration with Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital, the label Laced Records have launched a Kickstarter for an official 3LP release of the original Hotline Miami OST + 4 bonus tracks.
The records come on a color each – one black, one red, one yellow – and will come in a triple gatefold cover with brand new artwork by Niklas Akerblad and Protski.
Laced Records is aiming for a £40,000 goal on Kickstarter to make this happen. If it succeeds a first pressing of 5000 copies will be made. Early bird pledges is £30 and when those are out it will be £35. Additional tiers are available for extra Hotline Miami goodies as well.
