Building on the narrative score of the original Red Dead Redemption, The Music Of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Score is a powerful, emotional journey through the final days of America’s outlaw era, and the second volume of music from Red Dead Redemption 2.
The award-winning interactive score was composed by longtime Rockstar collaborator Woody Jackson who previously scored the original Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire and Grand Theft Auto V with Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist and Oh No.
“Writing the score for Red Dead Redemption 2 was an incredibly ambitious project, and I couldn’t have been more proud of the results,” said Jackson. “We created a living soundscape through an immensely diverse cross-section of 19th century America. After all these years of working with so many talented people, I can’t wait to share these songs beyond the world of the game.”
