Back in 2013, the track ‘Debutante’ was heard alongside the reveal of No Man’s Sky. The band that made that song, 65daysofstatic, have since been working on the soundtrack for No Man’s Sky and to celebrate, they’ve announced that the soundtrack will be releasing within days of the game itself.
The album, No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe, will contain ten tracks of original music and six soundscapes and sound design, amounting to an impressive two hours of listening.
The audio director for No Man’s Sky is using the music from the album and other audio to create a soundtrack that will self-generate with the pace of the playthrough.
65daysofstatic said; “Being involved with No Man’s Sky is as unlikely as it is exciting. Two years of our lives have disappeared into a black hole and we’ve been spat out into another dimension. The project has pushed us to explore new processes and techniques, to rethink our relationship with our own music and to essentially soundtrack every narrative thread of a ‘choose your own adventure’ novel that exists only in our minds. We’re really proud of the results, and can’t wait to release the album and play it live.”
The album will be released on June 17, and will have digital availability for purchasing and streaming from all major digital music retailers, as well as being available on deluxe double CD, 10 track double vinyl (and a digital download of the tracks) and deluxe vinyl collector’s edition, with the sixteen tracks spread over 4 LPs.
You can listen to ‘Supermoon’ from the album here.
No Man’s Sky will release on PS4 and PC from June 21 in North America, June 22 in Europe and June 24 in the UK.
