Mondo to publish five-disc Portal 2 vinyl soundtrack album

Austin-based label Mondo will publish the five-disc Portal 2 vinyl soundtrack album later this year. The album features music from the physics-based puzzle-platformer composed by Mike Morasky and cover art by Alan Hynes.

The Portal 2 music score blends synthetic-sounding compositions on electronic piano, oddly modulated chip music and unusual rhythm patterns to reflect the theme of computers run amok. End credits break-up song "Want You Gone," the spiritual successor to "Still Alive," is written by Jonathan Coulton and performed by GLaDOS voice actor Ellen McLain. "Cara Mia Addio," depicting a chorus of singing turrets, capitalizes on McLain's background as an opera singer.

All three volumes of the Songs To Test By: Portal 2 soundtrack album by Aperture Science Psychoacoustic Laboratories are free download in mp3 format through Valve's Thinkwithportals website. Portal 2 is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, along with Xbox 360 (with Xbox One backward compatibility). The four-hour, 77-track digital soundtrack is streaming on Spotify.

From the Steam product page:
Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.

The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.
