It’s been a while since Spacelab9 casually announced that they would be releasing Marcin Przybyłowicz’ soundtrack to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on vinyl in the bottom of their newsletter.
Now we do have some details on not just one, but two different versions of the soundtrack.
The first will be a 2LP on “wolf emblem” silver grey colored vinyl and has the full 35-track soundtrack. The second will be a limited edition 3LP on red and blue vinyl and has the full 35-track soundtrack on the first two records and the Heart of Stone DLC soundtrack on the third.
Both will be housed in a triple gatefold jacket that features brand new new custom artwork.
The 2LP variant is priced at $30 and will be available exclusively from ThinkGeek on June 2, 2017 via this link.
The 3LP variant is priced at €40 and is available exclusively through Game Legends right now via this link. According to Game Legends the 3LP is limited to just 100 copies, so you probably shouldn’t wait too long if you’re going for that one.
It’s not exactly new news that Spacelab9 will be releasing Jason Graves’ Far Cry Primal soundtrack at this point. It is, however, not until now that they’ve been ready to order.
The album will be a 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket sporting original game art. The release will come in 3 color variants – a white-in-blue translucent “glacier” variant, a brown opaque/translucent split with splatter “cave painting” variant, and a retail black variant.
The release date for the “glacier” and retail variants is April 21, 2017 while the “cave painting” will be out on April 25, 2017.
The “cave painting” variant will be exclusive to Spacelab9’s own webstore. The “glacier” variant is exclusive to ThinkGeek and can be ordered here.
The black variant is for all other retailers and can be ordered now via Amazon.
Spacelab9 recently announced on social media that they will be releasing previously unreleased music made by Ola Strandh for Tom Clancy’s The Division.
The release will be titled “Exclusive Music From Tom Clancy’s The Division”. It will be a 2LP and comes in a gatefold cover with game art. There’s no info on color options, but from an eBay listing for a signed copy from the game’s development studio, it’s clear that there will be a black vinyl version.
The album will go up for sale via Thinkgeek.com tomorrow March 10, 2017 and is expected to start shipping out shortly after.
In a newsletter sent out today Spacelab9 announced that they will be releasing “Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd” as a picture disc LP.
Jesper Kyd scored Assassin’s Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, and all four titles will be featured on this compilation LP.
It’s unclear if this is one of the vinyl releases that was announced by Sumthing Else Music Works last year. Sumthing Else have previously released records on their own, but it sounds likely that they are collaborating with Spacelab9 for this release.
The release date is currently listed as “TBA soon” and I will update this post as soon as more is announced.
Today Bethesda have listed a massive 6LP box set containing Inon Zur’s full 65 track score to Fallout 4 – 3½ hours worth of music!
The box set is done by Spacelab9 (who previously worked with Bethesda on the 4LP Fallout 3 score) and includes the discs in 3 gatefold jackets within a slipcover. All 6 records come on blue vinyl.
The set is priced at $125 and is limited to 3000 copies. It is scheduled to release on July 1, 2016 and can be preordered from the Bethesda Store here.
A post on Modern Vinyl today showed what had been teased for a while – and maybe a little more than that. Inon Zur’s Fallout 3 score will be released by Spacelab9 on a 14-track picture disc sampler (exclusive to Hot Topic) as well as a 3LP + a 7″ blue vinyl housed in a triple gatefold inside a slipcase box that’s being sold by the official Bethesda Store.
There’s no release date confirmed for either, but the picture disc is currently being sold at Spacelab9’s booth at New York Comic Con meaning that they have been pressed.
UPDATE: Spacelab9 has revealed on Facebook that the release date for both will be November 13.
UPDATE: Bethesda have revealed that the 3LP+7″ will cost $85
UPDATE: Pre-orders are now live through the Bethesda Store
Spacelab9’s delayed and long-awaited Mega Man picture disc can now be purchased through Hot Topic’s website and stores.
If you don’t like picture discs, Hot Topic, or both then you’re in luck as Spacelab9 has promised to release a standard vinyl version on their own site on a later undisclosed date.
Update: While I was writing this the release sold out. It might still be available in-store, though.
Update 2: In a comment on a reddit-post, Spacelab9 said that they hope to be able to ship the standard vinyl versions in late September/early October.
