Red Dead Redemption 2’s Original Score Releases in Early August
Only a few more weeks until you can listen to more stellar tracks from Red Dead Redemption 2 on repeat forever.
Hot off the heels of Red Dead Redemption 2’s original soundtrack releasing last week, Rockstar Games has now announced when fans can expect to also hear the music of the game’s original score as well.
The formally titled The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score now has a release date of its own and it’s only a few weeks away. The album is set to be released early next month on Friday, August 9. Pre-orders for the score are currently available on iTunes along with select tracks also being available to listen to on Spotify. You can find these sample tracks attached below.
Unlike the soundtrack, this score will feature the music from Red Dead Redemption 2 that would have played in the background during the game rather than the original songs made for the game. While the music on both albums was made specifically for RDR2, the soundtrack essentially features all of the songs that were sung in the game while the score is purely music.
The score was composed by Woody Jackson, who has previously worked on other notable Rockstar titles such as the original Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and Grand Theft Auto V. “After all these years working with so many talented people, I can’t wait to share these songs beyond the world of the game,” Jackson said of nearly releasing the album.
In total, the original score is set to contain twenty-two tracks. Here are the names of each song along with the composers that will appear on the album:
