Red Dead Redemption 2 has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance at Gaming Nexus, with several of us circling around Red Dead Online or jumping back into the full campaign over the last month. As a new Red Dead player, one of the things that struck me immediately is the quality of the music in the game. Even if I'm just strolling across a field, the quiet guitar plunks that play in the background go a million miles towards selling the atmosphere.
For fans (and they are legion) of The Housebuilding Song - the song that plays in a well-remembered and much-loved scene during the campaign - Rockstar has teamed with the Lakeshore Records Online Store to offer a new EP - The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2: The Housebuilding EP.
This is the third round of music available from Red Dead 2, and you can stream it right now on Spotify, Apple Music, and more. I hopped onto YouTube music this morning, and there it was, waiting for me. For those with a more tangible need to hold the music in their hands (or a love for the richer sound that vinyl offers), you can order the gorgeous limited edition blue sky vinyl copy here. Or, if you are a member of the Rockstar Social Club, head here for an entry form to win a copy.
