CD Projekt Red released a behind-the-scenes video this morning to give fans a look at the making of Cyberpunk 2077’s soundtrack. Titled Cyberpunk 2077 – Behind the Music, the video includes short interviews with Run the Jewels, Refused, Grimes, A$AP Rocky, Gazelle Twin, Ilan Rubin, Richard Devine, Nina Kraviz, Deadly Hunta, Rat Boy, and Tina Guo.
While the video’s title clearly riffs on the now-defunct VH1 series, it’s a short clip with small soundbites from the artists that contributed to the soundtrack. It doesn’t even give fans much of a listen to the tracks included in the game. However, it does a solid job of keeping people on the hype train, which is exactly what these kinds of videos are for.
CD Projekt also released a video of Grimes (Claire Elise Boucher) performing at The Game Awards last week. Grimes performed 4ÆM live during the award show as part of her collaboration with CD Projekt.
Grimes’ performance was accompanied by a music video playing on screen behind her. The video was inspired by Cyberpunk 2077, though it isn’t just made of in-game footage, which is a bit disappointing. But if you missed Grimes’ appearance during The Game Awards, this is certainly a nice way to catch up.
Grimes will be providing music for the game’s soundtrack, however, she is also lending her voice-acting talents to a character in the game called “Lizzy Wizzy.” Lizzy is, as you may have guessed, a pop-star in the world of Cyberpunk.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on 16 April 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The Google Stadia version will release later next year.
