Cyberpunk 2077 YouTube Hits 1m Subscribers, Releases First Track From Official Soundtrack
Check out this beat-heavy track from the official soundtrack.
For a while now, the official Cyberpunk 2077 channels have been releasing a bunch of songs by an in-game band known as Samurai with Keanu Reeves’ character, Johnny Silverhand as the frontman. These songs are being recorded by the real-life band Refused who are writing, recording, and producing the tracks with creative direction from CD Projekt Red’s composer team which is being led by Marcin Przybyłowicz. So while we’ve got a feel for the in-game band who will possibly play a larger role in the story, we’ve not really heard anything from the official soundtrack.
That changed today when the official Twitter account announced the news that the Cyberpunk 2077 YouTube channel officially hit 1 million subscribers. As a way of celebrating the milestone, CD Projekt Red has decided to release the first track from the official soundtrack.
Last week, we’ve unlocked a very special achievement: 1 million @YouTube subscribers!
And to celebrate that awesome milestone, we have something for you… world premiere of Hole In The Sun – the first track from our official #Cyberpunk2077 soundtrack!https://t.co/RRMHygm0DB pic.twitter.com/jFQ6Rl3A51

The track, that you can listen to below, is titled “Hole In The Sun” and is from Raney Shockne feat. COS and Conway. The cool thing is that these are also known as another in-game band Point Break Candy, which means that players will more than likely see them performing live on stage, or maybe featured on the radio.
What’s more, it’s revealed that the track was actually teased during the last episode of Night City Wire, CD Projekt Red’s series of informational streamed episodes that reveal more details about Cyberpunk 2077 as it grows closer to launch.
If you’re looking to pick the game up, it’ll be available in November on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It’s also going to be heading to next-generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X. Those who purchase the game for current-generation platforms will be able to upgrade the game for free to take advantage of the next-generation hardware.
