First tracks from the Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack available this Friday

Join Aloy on the next chapter of her journey and dive into the beautiful score of Horizon Forbidden West.

Starting this Friday, you will be able to enjoy the score that accompanies your machine hunts, both in and outside the game! We teamed up with our friends at Sony Music to roll out the Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack on all streaming platforms, starting February 25.

Following all the love we received on the wonderful music of Horizon Zero Dawn, we wanted to make as much of the score to Horizon Forbidden West available for you to listen to as possible. To do this, we will be releasing the soundtrack in three volumes. Volume 1 arrives this Friday and includes tracks such as Aloy’s Theme, a new take on her iconic theme for Horizon Forbidden West with vocals by Julie Elven, and In the Flood, the beautiful track featured in the game’s opening title sequence with vocals by Ariana Gillis.

The story behind In the Flood is remarkable. Originally written by our very own Lovisa Bergdahl, we felt it fit the game opening perfectly! Lovisa teamed up with Oleksa Lozowchuk to co-produce the track, which now graces the starting sequence as Aloy gallops into the West. If you’re interested in listening to Lovisa’s original tune, it will also be included in Volume 1 of our soundtrack.

The rest of the soundtrack will follow soon after, with additional digital releases on the 11th and 25th March, so be sure to mark your calendars!

Update: Volume 2 has released. Check the link below to find both Vol 1 + 2 on your favourite streaming platform. Volume 3 will release March 25.

Update 2: The full soundtrack is now available on your choice of streaming platform. Listen to the full Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack here.

Guerrilla Music Supervisor Lucas van Tol sat down with our composers to talk about the creation process of the soundtrack to Aloy’s journey. Joris de Man, Niels van der Leest, Oleksa Lozowchuk and composing duo The Flight discuss how they created the music for the Horizon Forbidden West. They also look back at scoring Aloy’s first adventure in Horizon Zero Dawn:

  • I’ll join Aloy once the Shimmering and graphical issues have been fully addressed. Not even the new update 1.05 has fixed this issue.

    • Same here. No hurry, I’ll wait for everything to be patched and optimized before jumping in. This game deserves to be played in it’s best form.

  • How do we download the soundtrack that we bought with the Deluxe version of the game? I don’t see that as an option anywhere… just the option to go to “Main Menu”.

  • How about for those of us who got the soundtrack but it’s only available to play in a PS5 container application rather something like… my iPhone…. Or anything else…

  • Can’t wait to listen.
    The Soundtracks of the game is amazing

  • i hope we’re gonna get the combat music cause it forking slaps

  • Kind of disappointed. I paid for the Collector’s Edition and it advertises “incl. soundtrack” – and now it sounds as if Sony is ‘graciously’ releasing the soundtrack.
    No, a PS app is no replacement for downloadable MP3 files. And no, releasing the files bit by bit is also not satisfying.
    Btw the “Listen to the Horizon Forbidden West soundtrack” link is a dummy. Not very professional.

  • I’m disappointed and sad that it’s only available for streaming but not for purchase? I want to pay full price for my musical amusement and not just a fraction of some monthly fee that some magical algorithms of streaming platforms do account. Please make it available for purchase as soon as possible or at least when all three volumes are out! Take my money!

    • I already paid for the soundtrack (as part of the collector‘s edition) and I can‘t download any files to my MP3 player.
      Try jogging with a PS4 strapped on :( :( :(

  • So excited!!!

  • Please release a CD set of the three volumes or make them available in lossless format online. The dynamic range of the music is incredible and the versions on the online services don’t due justice to a masterpiece like this.

    • I second this. Love some FLAC to put on my server at home. CD’s are still the best delivery method for me to do this outside of a really badass bluray music set.

  • The hype for this game is unreal

  • Just a bunch of white guys, sitting around making music for a game about an awesome woman saving the world. Oh the irony… LOL

  • I bought the Horizon Forbidden West Special Edition that included the Digital Soundtrack, however, as of right now, it requires that I use the PlayStation as an MP3 player to be able to listen to the music. As you can imagine, that is quite silly.
    Will the ability to copy the music to an external device, from the PlayStation, be added at any point?

    • What bother’s me more is the fact that there are only 12 tracks included in the Digital Soundtrack that we paid extra to obtain. On Spotify there are 44 tracks just in volume 1! You would think that if they advertised the soundtrack you would actually get the whole thing. I’ll be reaching out to Sony because that really seems like false advertisement. I was more than happy to pay extra at launch, but advertising the inclusion of the soundtrack but only giving you a fraction of the tracks is really rubbing me the wrong way.

  • I don’t use Streaming platforms. Why do you hate me sony.

  • What bothers me is the fact that there are only 12 tracks included in the Digital Soundtrack that we paid extra to obtain. On Spotify there are 39 tracks just in volume 1!

  • I appeal to the leaders of PlayStation

    On February 24, the Russian federation attacked Ukraine.
    Civilian are suffering. Army of Russian federation destroys civilian objects, kills civilians.

    The propaganda of the aggressor state turned out to be so strong that ordinary people in Russia still do not believe or refuse to believe what is happening.

    Those Russians who are currently playing must feel the changes caused by direct aggression against Ukraine.

    Therefore, I urge you to limit the access of Russian players to all online PlayStation services during the war against Ukraine

  • hello I’m sorry to bother you I just finished horizon forbidden west , I loved it, but I would like to go platinum but I did not scan the final boss. Do I have to restart the game completely or will there be an update to redo the quest? or something else thank you very much and good continuation.

  • Hi I’ve been playing forbidden West for the last week on the standard PS4, I’m unable to afford the Holy Grail, A PS5 at this moment in time, and I have to say on a standard 50 inch 1080p screen the game Shines bright in my opinion.
    And I have to say I’m loving it, well done to all involved in the project, it gets a gold thumbs up from me and the music is sick.🤓
