God of War Soundtrack Gets Early Release on Spotify
(26 days ago)
NEW YORK: Ahead of the video game's highly anticipated release, the God of War soundtrack composed by Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane) has been released on Spotify - available on PlayStation Music.
The game launches exclusively on PlayStation4 on April 20, 2018, and the soundtrack will be available everywhere else on the same day.
From an interview with PlayStation, composer Bear McCreary had this to say about his work on the game's latest installment:
"When Santa Monica Studio asked me to compose the score to the new God of War, I was awestruck, because I'm such a fan of the original games in the franchise. As I collaborated with game director Cory Barlog, it became clear that this new game would require wholly new music that did not revisit the memorable scores of the original games, but instead ventured forth into new musical territory. I took my memories of that classic God of War soundtrack - the deep choirs, pounding drums, and shrieking brass - and reinvented them for a Norse age. I wrote new themes, and introduced to the music exotic instrumentation and languages from various Northern European folk traditions."
