Kentucky Route Zero Soundtrack is Now Available to Stream and Purchase Digitially
The original soundtrack for Kentucky Route Zero is available to stream and purchase in all its magical realist glory.
With its first episode released in January 2013, seven years later the entire experience of Kentucky Route Zero has finally come full circle. Last week saw the release of the long-awaited fifth and final Act of the episodic, surreal adventure game series, along with its debut on consoles with the TV Edition. If you’ve been waiting to experience the entire game for yourself, now is certainly the best time to jump into Kentucky Route Zero, but even better is the fact that the game’s full soundtrack is now available for your listening pleasure.
Composer Ben Babbitt announced that the original soundtrack for Kentucky Route Zero is now available for purchase digitally and streaming, with the soundtrack available on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp. The 26-track collection features the majority of the original music from across the game’s five Acts, and is the perfect way to enhance your day-to-day travels while listening to its dreamlike soundscapes. Purchasing the album digitally on Bandcamp will get you high-quality versions of the soundtrack in either MP3 or FLAC formats for $10.

It has been a long time coming for the final installment of Kentucky Route Zero, which has been worked on by developer Cardboard Computer for nearly a decade. The game’s five Acts have been gradually released over the course of the last seven years (along with several inter-episode “Interludes”), with each installment further drawing players into the world of its titular magical roads underneath the state of Kentucky. While I myself haven’t played the final chapter of the game just yet, I’m looking forward to finally getting the chance to discover how the story of Conway and the rest of the game’s cast comes to a close.
Kentucky Route Zero is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux. For a closer listen into the game, you can find the full soundtrack below from Spotify. Stay tuned as well for our upcoming review of the game’s TV Edition.
