Red Dead Redemption


 

Red Dead Redemption featured some truly emotional moments supplemented by its very particular soundtrack, but one tune by a well known group didn’t make the game’s cut and was never released—until now.

Indie pop band Animal Collective has released the song it wrote for the 2010 open-world Western, titled “Mountain Game,” on YouTube. The band didn’t get into detail about why Rockstar chose not to use the song, only providing a relatively simple description: “Here’s an unreleased track we recorded in 2010 for Red Dead Redemption and it never got used. Enjoy.”

Admittedly, this style of music may not have fit the game’s tone as well as some other tracks that were used, such as Jose Gonzales’ “Far Away,” but the release of  “Mountain Game” is still a nice treat for fans who want to imagine what might have been.

It remains to be heard what kind of musical stylings will compliment the upcoming sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, which was officially announced in late October.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808
