Stellaris Music Expansion Pack

If you like this mod, please tell your friends about it! Unless this mod shows up at the top page of the "most popular mods" category again, chances are not many people will find it.


A .zip archive containing all tracks included in this mod as .mp3 files is now available for free here:

For my fellow audiophiles out there here's a lossless version for you as well!


Important information regarding game updates

This mod will most likely ALWAYS stay compatible with Stellaris when the game version changes. Regardless of the game launcher telling you that the mod is not up to date for the current Stellaris version, this is only due to the version specified in this mod's text file and should never, ever impact the actual compatibility with this game.

Because of this, I will not answer any more comments asking if this mod is compatible with version xyz of the game. Simply put: YES IT IS.

Additionally, this mod is fully Iron Man compatible since it does not change gameplay or any vanilla files.

Thanks for reading and understanding!


At the time I am uploading the latest update to this mod, I have played Stellaris for 375 hours. This game certainly wouldn't be what it is today without such an active, creative and hardworking mod community. This mod is my way contributing my small share to it and give something back to this amazing community.

What this mod contains

This music expansion pack contains twenty-six (!) new original music tracks that I specifically composed for Stellaris, with an overall duration of over 104 minutes.

My original goal was to create music that would fit into Stellaris and contain elements similar to the trademark sound of Andreas Waldetoft (whose work I immensely enjoy). At the same time, I wanted to cover specific themes and ideas, which are reflected in the titles I chose for each track. There are also some tracks that are similar to the music in certain other games, i.e. Rebel Galaxy ("Smuggler Blues" is one such track).

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed creating it. In the foreseeable future I may also add more tracks to this mod, especially if there is an actual demand for it!

If you like this mod, please consider giving it a positive rating!

Celebrating exactly 6 months since release as well as nearly 15,000 subscribers, I have added four more tracks: Eternal Struggle, Star-Crossed, The Thing with a Thousand Eyes and Last Stand.

Please do check out his youtube channel for more awesome music!
Note: Interstellaris is a cover of Hans Zimmer's famous "No Time for Caution" composed for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar". Like many of Hans Zimmer's unique works, it is a deeply powerful, emotional piece of music that I wanted to pay tribute to. I hope you enjoy it!

Update 2018-04-17:
Added four new tracks: Hunger of the Swarm, Smuggler Blues, The Citadel and Distress Signal. Also slightly increased in-game volume of individual tracks to closer match vanilla music. Music download links were updated and changed to Google Drive instead of mediafire.

@bLue Thank you so much! I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the mod! And sharing it is much appreciated. :steamhappy:

I love the music you put in! It makes the game so much better with this new music playing
Ima share this

@No Name Technically it's true that only the version number needs to be changed, but the mod still needs to be uploaded again as a whole. I hope that clears things up. :)

I haven't played Stellaris in a while, but I may have a look at the mod the next time I start a new game. Don't know when that will be, though.
No Name Nov 22 @ 8:24am 
Alright thank you. I was just wondering if it was possible to change the version number. I have seen some mod authors say they just change the version number.

@No Name
Has the mod stopped working? If not, just disregard the warning message of the launcher. I'm not planning to upload the whole mod again just to change the version number so the shitty launcher doesn't throw a fit.
No Name Nov 21 @ 10:01pm 
2.8.1 update soon?
XTRMNTR2K  [author] Nov 5 @ 1:16am 
@Delta Four Thank you SO much! That means a lot to me! Especially since I basically started working on this just for fun, and I had no idea where it would go from there or if anyone would actually want to listen to the music. Thanks again, and rock on! :steamhappy:
