iam8bit is proud to announce the soundtrack from the critically acclaimed PlayStation®-exclusive video game, Journey™, available for the first time on vinyl. The result of a superfun collaboration between SCEA Santa Monica Studio and indie developers thatgamecompany, Journey features stunning visuals, innovative cooperative gameplay, and an amazing music score performed by live orchestra and featured soloists. Composed by Austin Wintory, the music from Journey tells a story of its own and enjoys the honor of being the first video game soundtrack to be nominated for a Grammy Award.
We teamed up with acclaimed artist, Mark Englert, to create original album art that honors the beauty and emotional voyage that players experience when traversing the world of Journey.
iam8bit began 10 years ago as an art show — so naturally, we view EVERYTHING as a canvas, including vinyl records. This set includes two picture discs, featuring unique art on each side (for math junkies, that’s FOUR different sides of visual goodness!). The scarf of the Traveler wraps around the album’s perimeter, creating an almost hypnotic effect as it spins. If you pay close attention to the Traveler’s robe, you’ll notice that the embroidery becomes more ornate as you progress from side A to side D — just like each time you beat the game.
Rarely does a game come along that shatters all convention, revolutionizing our perspective on what interactive entertainment is capable of. Journey, the seminal, groundbreaking and now-legendary opus from developers thatgamecompany and Santa Monica Studios and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment, is a perfect expression of that. To celebrate its momentous 10th anniversary, iam8bit is ecstatic to revisit one of the very first (and best-selling) vinyl soundtracks that we minted nearly a decade ago, offering composer Austin Wintory’s passionate, evocative and emotional score on the purest quality pressing possible — 180-gram audiophile black vinyl. We can’t overstate just how immaculate and important Journey’s music is to the greater gaming echelon — a fully orchestrated masterpiece, where robust epicness is complemented by intimate solos — which is exactly why it was the very first video game album nominated for a Grammy. This is a must-have for every vinyl collection, and it’s never sounded better!
