The powerful, emotional journey through the final days of America’s outlaw era is produced by 11-time Grammy Award winner Daniel Lanois, with all music created exclusively for the game. Lanois is known for his work with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson as well as collaborating with pioneering musician Brian Eno to produce several albums for U2 including the multi-platinum The Joshua Tree.
“Red Dead Redemption 2 provided a terrific compositional space, vast and covering a range of emotional textures – a real place for my imagination to run wild,” said Lanois. “From recording with Rhiannon Giddens in Nashville, to New Orleans with my friend Cyril Neville, to New York City with D’Angelo, to Willie Nelson and Josh Homme, the inspiration never quit!”
The soundtrack features vocal performances from a range of award-winning artists including D’Angelo, Willie Nelson, Rhiannon Giddens, Josh Homme, plus an additional track written, produced and performed by David Ferguson.
“I had a great time reuniting with Lanois to compose for this project, and I’m incredibly grateful to see how the ‘Crash Of Worlds’ chant has touched the hearts of so many players through the game,” said composer, Rocco DeLuca.
