Music by Hildur Guðnadóttir & Sam Slater (Joker, Chernobyl), is now available to stream via Lakeshore Records. This 14-track album features a disruptive score from the forthcoming Electronic Arts video game. This is the first video game score from the two-time Grammy Award winners, who used on-location recording techniques and algorithmic distortions to create a singularly unique auditory experience. Pre-orders for the soundtrack release are also now available for purchase on iTunes, releasing September 20.
Worldwide digital release of the album will be via Lakeshore Records on September 20th, 2021. Lakeshore Records and Invada Records will co-release the vinyl edition at a later date (TBD).
