Willie Nelson, D’Angelo and others headline RDR2’s first album.
Rockstar has announced today that they’ll be publishing the soundtrack and score for Red Dead Redemption 2 later this summer.
The studio said in a press release that they will be releasing two albums: one for the original soundtrack and another for the original score. The first, The Music Of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Soundtrack, which Rockstar describes as a “collection of vocal tracks,” will release on July 12th, 2019 and contain all of the original songs (not background music) written for the game.
Artists on the album include Willie Nelson, D’Angelo, Rhiannon Giddens, composer Rocco DeLuca, and country recording artist David Ferguson.
The second album, to release later in the summer, will contain the original score for Red Dead Redemption 2 by composer Woody Jackson.
Red Dead Redemption 2 won both the Best Score/Music and Best Audio Design at The Game Awards 2018 (along with a host of other categories). The first album is available for pre-order on iTunes, and two tracks are currently available: Crash of Worlds and Table Top.
JR is IGN’s Senior Features Editor and really loved when Wilie Nelson showed up in RDR2. He might have gushed about it ˆ.
