Yooka-Laylee - Soundtrack

Laced Records will release the original game soundtrack to Yooka-Laylee on CD, Double LP and digital formats in April, 2017.

The score to Playtonic Games’ upcoming platform adventure game is composed by Rare alumni; Grant Kirkhope, David Wise and Steve Burke. Between them, the three legendary composers are responsible for a ton of memorable game soundtracks including, Goldeneye 007, Banjo-KazooieDonkey Kong CountryKameo and Viva Piñata.

The music of Yooka-Laylee is a deliberate throwback to the classic platforming puzzle adventures of the ’90s with melodic, quirky compositions that complement the game’s cast of oddball characters. You can hear four samples from the soundtrack – including two new pieces – on SoundCloud.
