Japanese Breakfast has debuted the full soundtrack to open-world video game SABLE.
An album of instrumental and vocal music featured in the game, the 32-track collection forms part of the new game from indie developer Shedworks and publisher Raw Fury.
Of the soundtrack, Michelle Zauner says, “I was so lucky Daniel Fineberg and Gregorios Kythreotis from Shedworks invited me onto this game so early on. I was immediately captivated by the world they’d built, a desert planet filled with mysterious natural and architectural wonders, and the story they’d imagined, one of a young girl coming of age through exploration. It was important to me that each biome in this world felt unique. I used woodwinds and vocal layering to make monumental ruins feel ancient and unknown, industrial samples and soft synths to make atomic ships feel cold and metallic, classical guitar and bright piano to make encampments feel cozy and familiar. I wanted the main themes to recall iconic works of Joe Hisaishi and Alan Menken, to fill the listener with the childlike wonder of someone on the precipice of a grand discovery.”
A vinyl version of the soundtrack is available to pre-order now.
