[NEWS] GHOSTLY TO ISSUE C418

Call it a love for ambient music or an inspired continuation of our Hohokum collaboration, but we couldn’t be more excited to tell you about the latest video game soundtrack Ghostly has in the works. On August 21, we will issue the Minecraft OST by German composer C418, called Minecraft Volume Alpha, on vinyl and CD. The limited-edition LP (only 1,000 available) will be pressed to transparent green vinyl and housed in a 3D lenticular-printed jacket with artwork by C418 himself.

Today’s announcement premiered on Nerdist, along with a four-song sampler compiled by the German artist. Nerdist said this of the tracks: “Mixing analog with digital, the beginning of each song recalls low tide, and as the compositions progress you can actively feel the disparate parts of the song gain momentum simultaneously and crest. It is busy yet calming, just like the surface of an ocean a couple days following a storm.” Ghostly is thrilled to bring the first physical release of this record to longtime Minecraft fans, not to mention share the beautiful, classically minded ambient pieces to an entirely new audience.
