If you’re like us, you fell in love with the music from CD Projekt RED’s E3 trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. With heavy industrial themes, the soundtrack has incredible potential but now RPG fans can enjoy the first track from Cyberpunk 2077 OST: Chippin’ In by Samurai thanks to Refused!
The studio has announced that the iconic Swedish punk rock band is providing the voice and voice of Samurai and they couldn’t be more thrilled with this partnership. From listening to the track above, the partnership seems to be a perfect fit which makes future OST reveals all the more exciting.
“I’m incredibly excited about having Refused on board for Cyberpunk 2077,” said Marcin Przybyłowicz, Music Director, CD PROJEKT RED. “I know for a fact there are a lot of fans of the band at the studio, including Piotr Adamczyk, one of the composers working on the game, who came to me with the idea for this collaboration. I’m very happy he did, because the massive riffs, powerful drums, and hard-hitting vocals the guys from Refused deliver as SAMURAI have blown me away,” added Przybyłowicz. “I can wholeheartedly say the punk factor of Cyberpunk 2077’s music is through the roof!”
“Like us, SAMURAI is a group of rebels, albeit in a different time and place,” said Dennis Lyxzén, Lead Vocalist of the band 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,” added Lyxzén.
As for the game itself, CD Projekt RED’s brand new IP officially arrives on April 16th, 2020. For more about the game:
