Cyberpunk 2077 OST’s First Track Released, Titled Chippin’ In (VIDEO)
CD Projekt RED has clearly shown how much work is being put into the periphery surrounding the gameplay for Cyberpunk 2077. Aside from including so many layers to the open world of the game, their multimedia promotions so far have been confirmed to involve a mobile game and updates for Cyberpunk 2020. Now, in true punk fashion, CD Projekt RED has revealed the first track of their Cyberpunk 2077 OST, which will feature some big name talent in the punk scene to bring the game’s music to life.
CD Projekt RED has released the first Cyberpunk 2077 OST song on their official YouTube channel for the game. The new song is titled “Chippin’ In,” and has the performing artist listed as Samurai. For those unfamiliar with Cyberpunk lore, Samurai was the name of the band led by one Johnny Silverhand, the character being played by Keanu Reeves in the footage that was revealed at E3 last month. In the original lore, Silverhand formed the band after serving in the US military for the Second Central American Conflict, as referenced by the dogtags around his character’s neck.
Chippin’ In may have a familiar punkish sound to it, as it was the song that played when Reeves walked onto the E3 stage for the Cyberpunk 2077 presentation, and that sound came from verified experts of the genre. CD Projekt RED confirmed that it is actually real life Swedish punk band Refused that performs the song, which is the first official track for the game’s OST. The punk band will be performing all of the songs in the game that are meant to be the hit singles of Silverhand’s Samurai. “Like us, SAMURAI is a group of rebels, albeit in a different time and place,” said Dennis Lyxzén, Lead Vocalist of Refused.
Working together with CD PROJEKT RED, writing music and song lyrics for Cyberpunk’s chrome rock icon was fun, but also very different in the creative sense. It was an unexpected challenge that turned out to be right up our alley and really got us going. The songs turned out great and the game looks insane.”
CD Projekt RED did not yet officially confirm that these songs would be made available on music streaming services, but The Witcher 3’s soundtrack is available on most of the big services out there, so the Cyberpunk 2077 OST will likely be released there at some point. Hopefully they will be, and assuredly at that time, they will be breathtaking.
