As The Game Awards recently showcased, CD Projekt Red is going all-out when it comes to the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. Not only do they have their in-house composer Marcin Przybyłowicz, but they are also utilising the musical talents of many musicians and bands to help build the overall music scene in Night City. A new video released following Grimes’ performance of 4ÆM at the Game Awards gives fans a bit more information about what they can expect.
Musicians Contributing to the Cyberpunk 2077 Soundtrack
Since E3 2019, fans of Cyberpunk 2077 haven’t heard much from CD Projekt Red. As per usual, the Polish studio tends to keep quiet about their projects between big events, although some new interesting tidbits have nonetheless emerged. However, the Game Awards 2019 recently featured a performance by Grimes of a track called “4ÆM,” which, it turns out, will feature in the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. In fact, Grimes will be fronting one of the bands in the game, Lizzy Wizzy and the Metadwarves, as the character Lizzy Wizzy.
However, Grimes is just one of the musicians contributing to the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. Obviously, as one example, fans have already heard two tracks from Refused which were released earlier this year. Refused will of course be providing the in-game music for Samurai; the band fronted by Johnny Silverhand. In fact, they are even planning to release a Greatest Hits album as Samurai. This EP will feature music which is; “heavily inspired by the original source material, as well as original tracks created by the band exclusively for Cyberpunk 2077.”
However, CD Projekt Red has now confirmed that A$AP Rocky, Deadly Hunta, Gazelle Twin, Ilan Rubin, Nina Kraviz, Rat Boy, Richard Devine, Run the Jewels, and Tina Guo will all be providing music for the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack as well. It’s unknown if this is the entirety of the musical lineup, or whether there’s any names still to announce. However, there’s no question that it is certainly an impressive lineup so far, especially for a video game.
