The long anticipated release of No Man’s Sky is firmly on the horizon and if you’re finding yourself counting down the minutes until you get your hands on the space exploration game, you may want to listen to the No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe soundtrack.
The music is entirely created by 65daysofstatic who were originally approached by Hello Games to use one of their tracks for the official trailer. In an interview with The Independent, band member Joe Shrewsbury stated:
“Way back in 2013 we received a request to license the track ‘Debutante’ from our album We Were Exploding Anyway for a promotional trailer for No Man’s Sky. We were intrigued by the game, and asked to learn more, and the more we learnt the more we wanted to be involved. We made it abundantly clear that if they didn’t have someone lined up to do the soundtrack, we’d be interested. Fortunately for us, they were fans of our music already, and we met up with Sean not long after that, and were subsequently offered the project.”
The soundtrack features 10 atmospheric tracks each with their very own space-themed name. The soundtrack is available to listen to for free in the above video but if you would like to support the musicians you can buy the soundtrack from August 5th.
No Man’s Sky arrives August 10th in the UK on PlayStation 4 and PC.
