Neil Davidge was the producer and co-composer of the last three Massive Attack albums and now he turns his considerable talents to the gaming world by scoring the Halo 4 video game. The soundtrack will release October 22nd via The End Records and features music that is massive and grand with soaring crescendos and painterly in execution with waves of sound illustrating another world. The project involved the additional work of some of the electronic music world’s leading lights, including Gui Boratto, DJ Skee & THX, Hundred Waters, Sander Van Doorn & Julian Jordan, Caspa, Apocalyptica, and more.
  
“It was an honor to compose and produce the ‘Halo 4’ score,” said Davidge. “I am so proud of the way the OST has turned out and to have had the opportunity to evolve the great legacy of Halo music. To be able to then collaborate with these talented DJ’s and musicians on various remixes was a real bonus as it is always fun and interesting to see how others interpret and reimagine what you have created.”


Today, we bring you the online premiere of track 13, “Arrival” and you can also check out “Ascendancy” (Caspa Remix) over at Rolling Stone.
