Refused Is Officially the Sound and Voice of Cyberpunk 2077’s SAMURAI!

Cooperation with the acclaimed Swedish punk rock formation involves writing, recording, and producing an EP featuring the greatest hits of SAMURAI, with creative direction provided by CD PROJEKT RED’s composer team headed by Marcin Przybyłowicz. Tracks born from the partnership include ones both heavily inspired by the original source material, as well as original tracks created by the band exclusively for Cyberpunk 2077.

“I’m incredibly excited about having Refused on board for Cyberpunk 2077,” said Marcin Przybyłowicz, Music DirectorCD PROJEKT RED. “I know for a fact there are a lot of fans of the band at the studio, including Piotr Adamczyk, one of the composers working on the game, who came to me with the idea for this collaboration. I’m very happy he did, because the massive riffs, powerful drums, and hard-hitting vocals the guys from Refused deliver as SAMURAI have blown me away,” added Przybyłowicz. “I can wholeheartedly say the punk factor of Cyberpunk 2077’s music is through the roof!”

“Like us, SAMURAI is a group of rebels, albeit in a different time and place,” said Dennis LyxzénLead Vocalist of the band Refused. “Working together with CD PROJEKT RED, writing music and song lyrics for Cyberpunk’s chrome rock icon was fun, but also very different in the creative sense. It was an unexpected challenge that turned out to be right up our alley and really got us going. The songs turned out great and the game looks insane,” added Lyxzén.

Gamers worldwide already got a taste of Refused’s work for CD PROJEKT RED’s upcoming open world, action adventure story, with SAMURAI’s Chippin’ In concluding the E3 2019 Cinematic Trailer for the game. Today, to celebrate the announcement, SAMURAI’s iconic track has been made available across select digital stores and streaming services.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for pre-order. The game is coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on April 16th, 2020. For more information, visit the official website — cyberpunk.net.
