Black Screen Records have announced that they will be releasing Jessica Curry’s acclaimed soundtrack to the game Dear Esther on vinyl.
The release will be a 2LP available on 180g black or 180g limited edition white vinyl. It will be cut at 45RPM and remastered specifically for vinyl. It will also feature new original artwork by Alex Grahame and liner notes by Jessica Curry. Finally, it also comes with a download code for the game and the digital soundtrack.
It is priced at €30 and is scheduled to release on February 14, 2017. Preorders are open now via Black Screen Records.
It’s been a while since composer Jessica Curry teased that the soundtrac kfor Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture would be receiving a vinyl soundtrack. But now Music On Vinyl has put up the soundtrack in their online catalog confirming that they will be releasing the soundtrack.
The soundtrack will be out on a gatefold 2LP, is set to release on Nov 30 and will be limited to 500 numbered copies on clear vinyl. Knowing Music On Vinyl it seems likely that an “unlimited” black pressing will be released once the clear pressing sells out.
It will be released as a part of Music On Vinyl’s ‘At The Movies’-series, that covers all their motion picture, tv show, and video game soundtrack releases.
Being released by Music On Vinyl also means that this will receive a wide release and will be available through several online and physical record stores.
Jessica Curry, composer and studio head at The Chinese Room, has said on Twitter that the soundtrack to the upcoming game, Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, will be released on vinyl.
The news was shown in a screenshot by NeoGAF user PurpleMoustache in the VGM vinyl thread.
Now you might be wondering why I don’t cite the Tweet directly as the source and why I’ve tagged this as a rumored release. This is simply because I can’t find the tweet. It might have been taken down (or I’m an idiot with Twitter, which is just as likely), so I’m counting this as a rumor for now.
Update: I’ve finally come across a Twitter-link where Curry addresses the vinyl release, so I will now consider this confirmed.
