The Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack will be released on streaming platforms on Friday, February 25th, 2022. Additionally, two new videos featuring Guerrilla Music Supervisor Lucas van Tol were released detailing the process of creating the soundtrack. You can check out the first video above and the second below:
Starting this Friday, you will be able to enjoy the score that accompanies your machine hunts, both in and outside the game! We teamed up with our friends at Sony Music to roll out the Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack on all streaming platforms, starting February 25.
Following all the love we received on the wonderful music of Horizon Zero Dawn, we wanted to make as much of the score to Horizon Forbidden West available for you to listen to as possible. To do this, we will be releasing the soundtrack in three volumes. Volume 1 arrives this Friday and includes tracks such as Aloy’s Theme, a new take on her iconic theme for Horizon Forbidden West with vocals by Julie Elven, and In the Flood, the beautiful track featured in the game’s opening title sequence with vocals by Ariana Gillis.
The story behind In the Flood is remarkable. Originally written by our very own Lovisa Bergdahl, we felt it fit the game opening perfectly! Lovisa teamed up with Oleksa Lozowchuk to co-produce the track, which now graces the starting sequence as Aloy gallops into the West. If you’re interested in listening to Lovisa’s original tune, it will also be included in Volume 1 of our soundtrack.
The rest of the soundtrack will follow soon after, with additional digital releases on the 11th and 25th March, so be sure to mark your calendars! Check the link below to find the soundtrack on your favourite streaming platform from February 25:
Guerrilla Music Supervisor Lucas van Tol sat down with our composers to talk about the creation process of the soundtrack to Aloy’s journey. Joris de Man, Niels van der Leest, Oleksa Lozowchuk and composing duo The Flight discuss how they created the music for the Horizon Forbidden West. They also look back at scoring Aloy’s first adventure in Horizon Zero Dawn:Horizon Forbidden West - Meet the Composers Part 2 | PS5, PS4
We hope you enjoy Horizon Forbidden West and its score as much as we loved creating it for you.
