You may remember a little while back that various bits and pieces of merchandise was going to be launched for PlayStation VR title Rez Infinite, including a vinyl for its soundtrack. It has now been announced today that Driveclub will be following its footsteps with a vinyl of its soundtrack to launch at the end of the month.
It has come out via the PlayStation EU blog that the official vinyl soundtrack for Driveclub will be coming out on 30th September, and it will be a Collector’s Edition double red vinyl, too.
One of the main contributors to the soundtrack is UK-based electronic band Hybrid, who has also produced music for soundtracks on movies such as X-Men Origins and Fast & Furious Five, as well as games such as Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
In the blog post Hybrid were quoted: “We were thrilled to be asked to work on Driveclub. It was the opportunity to score the music you hear whilst driving the most incredible cars in the world. It was great working so closely with Sony and Evolution as the particular care and attention to detail that was demonstrated in making the game itself had to be equalled in the music and we love detail. Plus we got to write some pretty filthy drum & bass to boot which was huge amounts of fun! It was a fantastic experience.”
As well as Hybrid, other artists who were involved in the soundtrack include DJ Shadow, Photek, Clark, Noisia and Black Sun Empire. Amongst the excitement of the announcement, Duncan Smith, Sr Music Supervisor at PlayStation also gave PlayStation VR a mention: “It’s been great working on this soundtrack and the artists involved, seeing it first fire up the original PS4 game before Driveclub Bikes pushed the envelope even further. Now we get to complete the circle with a classic analogue vinyl release, just before the state-of-the-art audio on Driveclub VR hits the shelves!”
