Sumthing Else Music Works has said that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Square Enix to release the original music score from the game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
The Original Soundtrack features 25 compositions from the game's original score composed by Michael McCann (ReGenesis, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, It's All Gone Pete Tong). The transhumanism-inspired soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fuses various musical styles and thematic elements including cybernoir, futuristic renaissance and electrosymphonic ambience.
Composer Michael McCann said: "There were close to 200 pieces of music created for the soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and I've selected 50 of those cues to create the 25 arrangements on this album. Many of the cues are a mixture of different pieces of music from the game's soundtrack, including alternate versions that were created for the various advertising trailers for the game. I have chosen these 25 to represent the arc of the game's story, drawing from the styles and ideas that make up the full soundtrack."
The Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack CD is scheduled for worldwide release on November 15th, 2011 to retail outlets and for digital download. The game is in stores now for Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
