Senyawa, Jon Theodore, Michael Shuman and more also contribute
Published Jul 19, 2019After revealing the tracklist for Red Dead Redemption 2's soundtrack last month, the details for the celebrated game's original score have now arrived.
The 22-track collection is set to see release digitally on August 9 through Lakeshore Records. The score was composed by Woody Jackson and features additional production and arrangement from Jeff Silverman (Truth and Soul, Aloe Black).
Contributions to the score also come courtesy of Arca, Colin Stetson, Senyawa, Queens of the Stone Age members Jon Theodore and Michael Shuman and more.
"Writing the score for Red Dead Redemption 2 was an incredibly ambitious project and I couldn't be prouder of the results," Jackson said in a statement. "We were creating a living soundscape for a wildly diverse cross section of 19th century America. After all these years working with so many talented people, I can't wait to share these songs beyond the world of the game."
Hear Stetson and Arca below on "Fleeting Joy" and "Country Pursuits," respectively. Those tracks arrive alongside Jackson's "Outlaws from the West."
