Stream the Days Gone Soundtrack Now
With just days before its launch, Sony Music has released the official soundtrack for Days Gone, their new open-world zombie game coming out this Friday.
The 25-track soundtrack is composed by Nathan Whitehead (The Purge, He’s Out There, Delirium, Keanu) and has been available to listen on all major streaming platforms since Friday, April 19th. The collection also features rising artists like Jack Savoretti, Billy Raffoul & Zander Reese, as well as “Days Gone Quiet,” performed by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi.
“The ideas that define the score are the tenacity of the human spirit and the value of relationships,” said Whitehead. “Early in the process John Garvin, creative director at Sony’s Bend Studio, described to me how the game isn’t simply about surviving, it also examines why we want to survive. When I heard that, I was instantly excited about all the places the music could go. I found it really interesting to be navigating the survival aspect and also this introspective aspect at the same time.”
Whitehead continues: “The Pacific Northwest setting is absolutely beautiful and it really felt like the score needed to connect to this environment as well. Deacon and the environment seemed to call for an organic, lived-in sound with a touch of Americana.”
Days Gone is set to launch on Friday, April 26th. In the US, GameStop is introducing a new promotion beginning with Days Gone that allows people to trade it back for full store credit within 48 hours.
