Immerse yourself in the world of Days Gone with the original soundtrack, featuring music from Nathan Whitehead, and songs by Jack Savoretti and Lewis Capaldi.
Sony Music has released 25 track soundtrack album to accompany Sony Bend’s open world action game, Days Gone.
The album features a score composed by Nathan Whitehead (The Purge: Election Year, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Beyond Skyline) as well as songs by Jack Savoretti, Billy Raffoul, Zander Reese, and Lewis Capaldi.
Speaking about the themes that influenced the score, Whitehead says:
“The ideas that define the score are the tenacity of the human spirit and the value of relationships. Early in the process John Garvin, creative director at Sony’s Bend Studio, described to me how the game isn’t simply about surviving, it also examines why we want to survive. When I heard that, I was instantly excited about all the places the music could go. I found it really interesting to be navigating the survival aspect and also this introspective aspect at the same time. The Pacific Northwest setting is absolutely beautiful and it really felt like the score needed to connect to this environment as well. Deacon and the environment seemed to call for an organic, lived-in sound with a touch of Americana.”
Ahead of the the game’s imminent release, Sony has also released two new videos. The first is a new gameplay trailer, but of more interest is the second, in which Sony Bend’s John Garvin speaks about the brutality and danger to be found in the game’s vast open world.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
