Confirmed: Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Vol 2


Microsoft have just confirmed the release of Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Volume 2.

"Following the huge critical and commercial success of the record-breaking 2012 release ‘Halo 4 Original Soundtrack’ by the award-winning producer and composer Neil Davidge, Microsoft, 7Hz Productions and 343 Industries are pleased to announce the release of ‘Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Volume 2’, available on April 8th 2013.
 ‘Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Volume 2’ features more stunning, expansive orchestral- electronic opuses which comprise a 20-track digital release, containing all the key themes from the game that we weren’t able to include on the first volume.
11 of the tracks are composed and produced by Neil Davidge with a further 8 by 343 in-house composer Kazuma Jinnouchi. The soundtrack also includes Kazuma’s new interpretation of Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori’s iconic ‘Never Forget’ from Halo 3. The tracks on Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Volume 2 are presented in chronological order as they appear in the game, to help bring the listener right into the heart of the Halo 4 experience."
Just in case you missed that:

In the UK, there are two flavours available to pre-order now, the digital download for £7.99 and a combo of the Original OST Special Edition Box Set along with a digital version of Volume 2 for £35.99. Still no word on a straight CD release of Volume 2.

If you missed it, I did an unboxing of the Special Edition Boxset, it is well worth a purchase for £36!

  1. I can not wait for this! Love volume 1. And 117 was awesome, gives it the beans near the end. I think more people should buy these soundtracks... Quite under rated I think.
