Yesterday marked not only the date of the official release of Max Payne 3
here in the states but also the release of HEALTH's hypnotic and powerful Soundtrack single "TEARS" on iTunes
. Today, we've got more Soundtrack treats for you all as we gear up for Max Payne 3's international release kicking off on Friday.
Starting with a special free download for Max Payne fans everywhere, the "MAX: THEME" by HEALTH
as heard above - their faithful, haunting rendition of the signature Max Payne theme as heard in the Max Payne 3 Launch Trailer
(and teased in this in-studio behind-the-scenes clip
We've also launched the Soundtrack feature page
at the Max Payne 3 Official Website
this week with more audio and info for everyone including an audio snippet of another pounding percussive track from the Soundtrack by HEALTH, "COMBAT DRUGS"
(heard in Official Trailer #2
). You can also read up on some new details about other music that underscores the Max Payne 3 story - from the original Trouble & Bass
DJ Mix heard during the game's fateful Nightclub sequence (stay tuned for a special mixtape release of that mix soon) to the gritty and soulful sounds of celebrated contemporary blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr that are heard during the Hoboken Bar sequence, a violent turning point in Max's life.
The Max Payne 3 Official Soundtrack
will be available digitally next week, Tuesday May 23rd featuring all original music from the score as composed by HEALTH, including "TEARS" as well as the bonus track "9 Círculos" by Emicida
. Stay tuned for full tracklist info by Tuesday - and also keep an eye out on the Rockstar Twitter
feed for the release of a special "US To BR" Remix of Emicida's "9 Círculos" later this week.
