UK instrumental band 65daysofstatic has announced the official global release of their first video game soundtrack, No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe. The announcement came via Laced Records on 17th June 2016. The release of the soundtrack will coincide with the release of the highly-anticipated science fiction exploration game, No Man’s Sky on PS4 and PC in June.
Since the debut of the track ‘Debutante’ accompanied the first reveal of No Man’s Sky in 2013, 65daysofstatic has spent over a year composing original music for the game’s soundtrack. The release itself comprises 10 tracks of original music, plus a second collection of 6 soundscapes. The soundtrack is exclusive to Laced Records and is almost two hours in length.
You can check out the first track from the album, “Supermoon” here.
“Being involved with No Man’s Sky is as unlikely as it is exciting. Two years of our lives have disappeared into a black hole and we’ve been spat out into another dimension. The project has pushed us to explore new processes and techniques, to rethink our relationship with our own music and to essentially soundtrack every narrative thread of a ‘choose your own adventure’ novel that exists only in our minds. We’re really proud of the results, and can’t wait to release the album and play it live.” – 65daysofstatic
No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe will be available for purchase as well as streaming at all major digital music retailers. For those looking for a physical purchase, there will be a deluxe double CD, 10 track double vinyl with a digital download of all 16 tracks, and a deluxe vinyl collector’s edition featuring all 16 tracks spread across 4 LPs. Those looking to pre-order can head over to Laced Records where you can find options ranging from $11.99 to $60.00.
