Elden Ring: The Original Soundtrack Now Available!

Elden Ring: The Original Soundtrack Now Available!

The official Elden Ring soundtrack was released today on music streaming services. On this occasion, the game's composer, Tsukasa Saitoh, shared some thoughts and details about the creation of the game's music on the official PlayStation blog.

Besides being one of the best games of the year, Elden Ring has an absolutely terrific soundtrack – like all FromSoftware games. Tsukasa Saitoh, Shoi Miyazawa, Yuka Kitamura, Yoshimi Kudo and Tai Tomisawa have created an orchestral score that pays homage to the studio's past while bringing something new.

67 tracks to listen to at any time of the day

The Elden Ring soundtrack is available on music streaming services worldwide. This 67-track album includes all of the music in the game, so you can listen to the soundtrack on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube Music , and if you're still buying albums, it's also available on iTunes.

FromSoftware has accustomed us to boss music that is epic and memorable, but the ambient tracks aren't left out either.

For the occasion, Tsukasa Saitoh, composer and Lead Sound Design , who notably worked with FromSoftware on Bloodborne, gave an exceptional interview to PlayStation . We learn, among other things, how the design and recording of music on Elden Ring takes place.

For much of the production, the process begins with a summary provided by the director. The briefing describes the desired mood and imagery for the track, including information about a character's past, or envisioned location/situation for the battle music. We refer to this text, concepts and screenshots of the game, which allows us to develop the original vision and build the piece. Once the piece is finished, it is submitted to the director for his opinion. he explains.

The Budapest Film Orchestra

We also recorded with a full orchestra and singers for the Elden Ring score. The orchestrator and performers did an absolutely marvelous job . »

You can see an excerpt of this work, as well as the Budapest Film Orchestra, in the video at the top of the article. The orchestra has been very involved in the production and recording of Elden Ring titles, particularly the brass section.

" One track, 'Song of Honor,' is played at Redmane Castle before the Radahn Festival. We originally intended to record this track with just the choir members. However, we realized that a gathering place for many mercenaries and soldiers would not necessarily be filled with competent singers. We wanted to try a direction that didn't specialize in vocal music, so as a hasty request, we asked the members of the horn section if they could play the part for us. They gladly accepted the idea, and I am extremely grateful to them, because we finally got a fantastic recording from them, very appropriate for a warrior song. »

It's the kind of initiative we expect from the musicians behind the epic music of FromSoftware games, and the kind of idea that makes the difference. You can therefore now take the bus with the musical theme of Necrolimbo, or even put some balm in your heart before going to the gym thanks to that of the soldiers of Radahn.
