Hitman: Blood Money Original Soundtrack Coming

Sumthing Else Music Works through a licensing relationship with Eidos Interactive, announced today the upcoming release of the Hitman: Blood Money Original Soundtrack. The soundtrack album from the latest installment in the multi million selling Hitman franchise will be released on May 30th at European and US retail and online outlets through Nile Rodgers’ Sumthing Else Music Works label sumthing.com, the industry leader for licensing and distributing video game soundtracks.

The Hitman: Blood Money Original Soundtrack features over an hour of original music from the game written and produced by British Academy award-winning composer Jesper Kyd. His powerful blend of ambient, electronic and symphonic orchestrations beautifully enhances the cool, dark cinematic flair of the Hitman series and evokes the sinister mindset of the world’s most deadly assassin Agent 47 as he travels to America and prepares to make a killing.

Highlights from the 16-track album include the operatic, choral crescendos and foreboding drums of “Apocalypse,” the surreal soundscapes capturing “Night Time in New Orleans,” the retro lounge vibe of “Vegas,” the hypnotic underground dance grooves of “Club Heaven,” and the Hitman: Blood Money theme, “Agent 47 Main Title.”

Nile Rodgers, veteran music producer and Sumthing Else label founder, said, “Jesper Kyd is one of the most cutting-edge and unique composers writing music for ANY medium. Whether he’s scoring a video game or movie it’s sure to be a hit and once you’ve heard the Hitman: Blood Money soundtrack his music will own you!
