We loved Austin Wintory’s music in our review of Journey, and were eagerly anticipating the release of a soundtrack on the PSN and iTunes, like with flOw and Flower. But with Journey, you’ll be able to get some of the music right now, absolutely free.
Wintory has decided to give out some of Journey‘s tracks through his newsletter. Sign up here, and he’ll email you the first track, Threshold, almost instantly – just be sure to add [email protected] to your safe senders list, or check your spam filter if you have any problems. The music you get won’t be available elsewhere, although thatgamecompany and Wintory are planning to release an official soundtrack with more music.
Even if you don’t plan on buying Journey, we recommend signing up to Wintory’s newsletter and listening to the beautiful music (plus it’s free).
