The game’s music soundtrack is now available for streaming online. This was announced by Tsukasa Saito, FromSoftware’s lead sound engineer and composer, on the Playstation blog. You can listen to the 67-track album on Spotify, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Apple Music, and other services.
Tsukasa Saito explains in an interview what was actually done to create some of the game’s music, which is probably one of the most underrated aspects of Elden Ring. The lyrics of some of the songs, though, are completely meaningless.
Saito shared something interesting about the ghostly voices that can be heard in “Song of Honor”, the track that plays in Redmane Castle as you prepare to fight the tiny equestrian Radahn. These voices apparently don’t belong to a group of trained singers, but the brass section of the Budapest Film Orchestra.
The decision to replace professional singers with a tuba, trumpet, and trombone orchestra was made almost at the last minute by the developers of FromSoftware. This was done to achieve a tougher sound. And if you’re curious about the faces and musical instruments that accompany the tunes in Lands Between, there’s even a short behind-the-scenes video showing the Budapest Film Orchestra in action.
