In anticipation of the release of the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 this Friday, October 26th, Rockstar Games has revealed new details about the game’s soundtrack and score.

The game’s evocative, dynamic score is composed by Woody Jackson. Additional music and arrangement by Jeff Silverman, featuring musical collaborations with Colin Stetson, David Ferguson, David Ralicke, Gabe Witcher, Luke O’Malley, Mario Batkovic, Matt Sweeney, Rabih Beaini and Senyawa, as well as contributions from over 110 other musicians including Arca (frequent Bjork, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Kelela collaborator), former Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band drummer James Gadson, Lee Hazlewood protégé Duane Eddy, Mars Volta and Queens of the Stone Age drummer Jon Theodore and more.

Fans of Rockstar Games will already be familiar with Woody Jackson’s work, having scored the original Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto V with Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist and Oh No.

All of the vocal moments in Red Dead Redemption 2 are produced entirely by Grammy Award-winner Daniel Lanois, known for producing albums for Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson as well as collaborating with pioneering musician Brian Eno to produce several albums for U2 including the multi-platinum The Joshua Tree. In addition to Lanois’ production, the soundtrack features additional vocal performances from a range of award-winning artists to be revealed soon. All songs for both the score and soundtrack were created exclusively for Red Dead Redemption 2.
