Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair soundtracks on Bandcamp

The 56-track digital soundtrack for the retro-styled platforming game Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is available for purchase through Bandcamp and Steam.

Just as the original Yooka-Laylee served as a modern-day homage to 3D platformers Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie, the sequel's 2D platforming sequences harken back to the gameplay of the Donkey Kong Country trilogy.

Yooka-Laylee composers David Wise of Battletoads and Grant Kirkhope of Perfect Dark are joined by Matt Griffin and Dan Murdoch. The 126-minute collaborative score sports a collection of jaunty, cheerful melodies, available for streaming on Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

The original score is complemented by a Retro Remix Soundtrack by Tater-Tot Tunes, published through the Playtonic Bandcamp page. The chiptune “de-make” compilation spans 50 tracks of nostalgic 8-bit arrangements.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam. From the product page:
Treat your ears to all 56 tracks from Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Featuring music from video game soundtrack royalty, Grant Kirkhope and David Wise, there’s a tune for every occasion, be that swimming through a factory or hopping through treetops.
