The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score is now available for pre-order, with three singles — “Outlaws From The West” by Woody Jackson, “Fleeting Joy” by Colin Stetson and Woody Jackson and “Country Pursuits” by Arca and Woody Jackson — available to download immediately with all pre-orders starting today. This is in addition to the Original Soundtrack, which was released on July 12.
The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score will be released digitally on August 9, 2019 in collaboration with Lakeshore Records. Building on the evocative score of the original Red Dead Redemption, The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score is a powerful, emotional journey through the final days of America’s outlaw era and the second installment of music from Red Dead Redemption 2.
This award-winning interactive score was composed by longtime Rockstar collaborator Woody Jackson, whose previous work includes score for the original Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and Grand Theft Auto V with Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist and Oh No.
“Writing the score for Red Dead Redemption 2 was an incredibly ambitious project and I couldn’t be prouder of the results,” said Jackson. “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.”
The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score also features additional production and arrangement by Jeff Silverman, with additional musical score and orchestration provided by Colin Stetson, David Ferguson, David Ralicke, Gabe Witcher, Luke O’Malley, Mario Batkovic, Matt Sweeney, Rabih Beaini and Senyawa, as well as contributions from over 110 other musicians, including Arca, Duane Eddy, Jon Theodore, Michael Shuman aka Mikey Shoes, and more.
