Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows soundtrack comes to CD and vinyl!
Following the success of GS-002 Shovel Knight The Definitive Soundtrack, we are excited to announce the next release in our collaboration with our friends at Yacht Club Games. GS-006 Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows The Definitive Soundtrack brings all 14 exciting tracks from the game's first expansion pack to both CD and vinyl for the first time! In addition to their debut on physical formats, we are also proud to bring the soundtrack to iTunes and streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music for the first time!
Esteemed Japanese illustrator Hitoshi Ariga lends his talents once again to design a brand new cover for the soundtrack (seen above). Both the 1-CD and 1-LP gatefold packages will contain the complete tracklist crafted by the talented Jake Kaufman, while the vinyl release will also include a download code containing the complete digital soundtrack. The CD will release by mid-November, while the vinyl is scheduled to release in December 2017.
