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.
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.
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.
