Skill Tree Records has published the third and final volume of the Psychonauts 2 soundtrack by series composer Peter McConnell. The 29-track digital album is also available for streaming through Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, and YouTube Music.

Developer Double Fine gained the intellectual property rights to the Psychonauts franchise ten years ago, and was acquired by Microsoft in 2019. The plotline of the 3D platformer follows the exploits of powerful psychic Razputin “Raz” Aquato, directly following the events of the interstitial VR title Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin.

Vocal track "Smell The Universe," alternatively titled "Cosmic I," leads off the Psychonauts 2 Original Soundtrack, Vol.2 album, performed in-game by Jack Black. The first volume focuses on the orchestral and jazz elements of the score.

Publisher iam8bit has opened preorders for the vinyl soundtrack release, decorated with album art by Arno Kiss. The Essential Edition, featuring selected tracks hand-picked by the Double Fine team, will ship on two analog records. The Complete edition ships on six discs and covers all three volumes of the music score.

In addition to the vinyl soundtrack release, iam8bit has announced Collector’s Editions of the game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. The box set includes Psychonauts and Psychonauts 2, a digital download code for the Psychonauts 2 soundtrack, exclusive behind-the-scenes development concepts, and other bonus items.

Psychonauts 2 is available for Windows, Mac and Linux through Steam, as well as Playstation 4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles.
