The release of Max Payne 3 is nearly upon. If you can’t get enjoy of Max’s pain, then you might want to take note of the game’s official soundtrack, releasing digitally on May 23.
The soundtrack to May Payne 3 has been created by LA-based band Health, featuring the song “Tears,” which will release as a single on iTunes on May 15, the same day the game hits shelves.
“By using a band instead of a traditional composer, we’ve created a soundtrack that sounds completely unique,” said Ivan Pavlovich, Rockstar soundtrack supervisor. “Health have created hundreds of hours of amazing music for the game’s score, and distilled it into a devastatingly moody and atmospheric soundtrack album."
You can get a taste of Health’s sway-inducing tunes with the below MP3 TV spot:
With one band helming the vast majority of the Max Payne 3 soundtrack, you can bet the thing will sound cohesive. But if you need a bit of diversity in your life, Brazilian hip-hop artist Emicida will also be lending his vocal prowess to the soundtrack for a few tracks.
