Get the Bastion Original Soundtrack!

Posted by Greg Kasavin on August 5, 2011

The wait is over! We’re pleased to announce that the Bastion Original Soundtrack is now available in a high-quality, DRM-free digital format. Check it out, and read on for details!

Spoiler Warning: The music in Bastion is key to the experience. We advise playing through the game before listening to the soundtrack.

Bastion Original Soundtrack

Brand-New Content: In addition to packing in all the tracks you love from the game, this fully remastered album features a new narrated intro plus a very special bonus track, “The Pantheon (Ain’t Gonna Catch You)”. It’s an hour of original music spread across 22 tracks, and it can all be yours for the predictable price of $10! Head over to our Bandcamp page and have a listen!

Bastion OST on Disc…at PAX: In September we will also be offering the Bastion Original Soundtrack on compact disc. You can preorder it now, or have a chance to get it early live and in person at PAX Prime in Seattle this August 26-28, where our audio director / composer Darren Korb along with the rest of our team will be on hand to sign your copy if you want! We hope you’ll stop by and say hello.

. . .

About Our Soundtrack: The music in Bastion was essential from the early stages of development, back when we had a feel for the kind of tone we wanted but could only begin to get at it with words. Darren ran with those ideas, creating a style of music he calls acoustic frontier trip-hop — an expression of the particular blend of familiar and exotic that we wanted for Bastion’s world. Darren’s music nailed our high-contrast tone perfectly and fueled much of our content creation.

Bastion OST Track List

We’d like to thank you again for the overwhelmingly positive response to our game and its soundtrack. While different aspects of Bastion have stood out to different people, one thing that’s resoundingly clear is that you love our soundtrack and want it! We’re happy to oblige, and hope this album lives up to your highest expectations.

    So awesome! Wish I could go to PAX Prime and meet the team. Going to pre-order the disc! Hard to say which is my favorite. Pale Watchers is great and of course all of the Themes.

  • Scott Meador on 5/8/2011

    I have a ton of video game soundtracks and am so very happy to be able to add Bastion's to that list. A truly wonderful game where the soundtrack was more than just ambiance, but it's own character within the story. Thanks for releasing this.

  • Erick on 5/8/2011

    Oh my God, I'm so happy this finally came out. I would love to see you guys at PAX so I could talk to you guys, even for a min. Unfortunately I didn't have the money... Oh well, I have enough for this lol, so I'm definitely still pre-ordering the Hard Copy. Anyway, thanks so much for this, you guys truly made a wonderful game.

  • Chris on 5/8/2011

    Pre ordering the disc as we speak...oh man Christmas came early! Why supergiant, how did you know I always wanted an epic soundtrack from your awesome game? Open my present to you, it's my love and adoration =D

  • John on 5/8/2011

    I just purchased a digital copy. Thanks so much for taking my suggestion by adding the soundtrack to Bandcamp.

  • Jason Imms on 5/8/2011

    Ah, finally! Super excited. The music of Bastion was one of the most important parts of what was, as a whole, an incredible experience. It'll be great to have such an awesome soundtrack to back mundane tasks. Now all I need is a personal narrator with an awesome voice.

  • Chris (another one) on 5/8/2011

    Just thought I'd throw in my vote for a vinyl release. I would gladly pay you for this soundtrack again if you could make one at some point down the line. I can imagine that would cause a lot of logistical issues.

  • Chris (binarybox) on 5/8/2011

    Yes! Awesome! I'm sure after enough badgering from us fans, this was bound to happen. I mean, it's win-win for both us and you guys, Supergiant! Continue to put out quality stuff like Bastion, and you've got yourselves a long-time fan here.

  • NickHrH on 5/8/2011

    Awesome, LOVE the music

  • Fisherman on 5/8/2011

    Awesome, see you guys at PAX!

  • Hobok on 5/8/2011

    I've been waiting for the soundtrack to be released since I bought Bastion earlier this week on XBL. Couldn't have come at a better time because I cleared the story last night. Thank you so much!

  • Simon on 5/8/2011

    Just bought the soundtrack there and waiting for my slow-ass internet to download it now, the wait is killing me! Excellent music and Darren deserves like, a Grammy or an Emmy or whatever the hell you call it. I'd go so far as to say it's one of the best scores I've ever heard for a video game. Well done lads.

  • glarbstar on 5/8/2011

    Looks like that's working out for you guys -- you're in the #1 top seller spot on bandcamp!

  • Shiiro on 5/8/2011

    I love you guys! Really, i DO! Preordered the CD few minutes ago. I'm sad that I can't say Hello at PAX. But the distance between Seattle and Germany is a bit too much ;] Thanks for hours of fun and a real good game!

  • GenXer on 5/8/2011

    Huge fan of game soundtracks in general, and this one is waaaay up at the top of my list. When it comes to a soundtrack that has as much to do with telling the story of a game as the game itself, Bastion's OST smashes it completely out of the park. CD preordered, MP3 soundtrack playing as I type this, and can't wait to see you guys at PAX in a few weeks. Thank you for listening to your fans and for the fast turnaround on such a super high quality, DRM-free soundtrack!

  • cliffyblake on 5/8/2011

    Yes! I was hoping this would see the light of day. I had the honor of meeting Greg Kasavin at E3, and now that I've beaten the game I can truly express how much I love it. Thanks for the amazing experience and an unforgettable soundtrack!

  • Rod Davis on 6/8/2011

    Any chance you could get this added to the Zune Marketplace? That would be awesome!

  • Adam on 6/8/2011

    While taking breaks from the game, I would often just sit in the Bastion with the Gramophone playing music from the game, and now I can play all of that music anywhere. Thank you to the Supergiant team and Darren Korb for this amazing music!

  • Levi on 6/8/2011

    Finally! Now I don't have to visit youtube to listen to this amazing music. Excellent soundtrack to a stellar game.

  • Francisco on 7/8/2011

    Bought the digital version immediately. Bastion had the best original soundtrack I've ever heard, and I'm so glad it's finally been released! On the downside, now I'm extra bummed that I'm not going to PAX this year. Thank you guys so much for the game and music! I can't wait to see what you do next.

  • Matt on 7/8/2011

    Amazing soundtrack and amazing game! Supergiant, you all did a fantastic job on Bastion. For me, it wasn't just a game, it was an experience for the ages! Everything from the graphics and art style, to the weapons and gameplay, to especially the music and story, it just came together for me into one of THE best games I've played in a very long time. You should be commended and I am hoping I see Bastion up for GOTY!

  • Max on 8/8/2011

    Seriously fantastic job on the soundtrack, I love the attention given to every aspect of Bastion. The only thing that would make me like the soundtrack more is more songs with Logan Cunningham. There's a great frontier vibe with the songs, I can't wait for Bastion to come out on PC so I can hear them in their natural habitat.

  • foxpen on 8/8/2011

    Bought a copy, and HOLY MAGIKARP, this music is fantastic! It's right up my alley, and it's so damn versitile! It's bluesy, it's Jungle-esque...it's everything in one. Even have some tribal beats in there, it's fantastci! So worth more than 10 bucks.

  • Dan on 9/8/2011

    First ever soundtrack (of anything) I've ever bought. Absolutely love it. The Zia song breaks your heart. This will get many playthroughs. Well done on the game too!

  • Tim (Syio) on 9/8/2011

    Ordered my copy and downloaded it for now until it arrives :) The music is amazing in this game and if my Xbox wasn't in repairs I'd be on my New Game+ now :(

  • Stephen Kelly on 11/8/2011

    Thanks a thousand times for putting up the Bastion soundtrack! It truly is one of the best I've heard in recent years. It defies genre, it does.

  • Psyconix on 13/8/2011

    Thanks for releasing the soundtrack of Bastion. I ordered the compact disc with that beautiful cover art by Jen Zee and the signature from Darren Korb. Btw, this is the first time I'm buying a soundtrack to a game. Great job!

  • Geddoe on 15/8/2011

    I pre-ordered the CD signed by Darren Korb. I've got to say I've never bought an OST 'till now, but you guys deserve it. Bastion was an awesome game and I hope I haven't heard the last of you. Keep up the good work, Supergiant Games !

  • Tyler on 16/8/2011

    Omg best soundtrack ever I love zia's theme song it would be awesome if these songs would relase on iTunes

  • Zeb. on 19/8/2011

    Great game, great soundtrack. I hope this game's release is a success and you can continue creating visions like this.

  • Baarogue on 19/8/2011

    Thank you so much for this, and for the amazing game. The only thing I was missing was the OST!
