Soundtrack details for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Composer Jesper Kyd continues to provide the score for the franchise
Sumthing Else Music Works has announced details about the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Soundtrack.
The soundtrack for the shooter will be available digitally on iTunes, Amazon.com, Sumthing.com and all major music streaming sites on September 30, followed by a 2-disc CD album on October 14.
The album features a pulsating electronic synthesizer sci-fi score by celebrated series composer Jesper Kyd (Borderlands, Borderlands 2) on CD1, followed by a diverse mix of ambient soundscapes and synth-tastic combat music by 2K Australia in-house sound designers Des Shore and Justin Mullins on CD2.
Jesper Kyd commented: "There are no traces of real instruments, everything is made with analog synths, drum machines and old gaming consoles. The music is my take on 1980s sci-fi music and electronic music and there's everything from Commodore 64 and Sega Megadrive instruments to massive analog synths and vintage drum machines. It's basically a headtrip through 1980s film-inspired electronic synth scores with my own twist on that genre."
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be released this October for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
