EMI Music Publishing and Remedy Entertainment to collaborate on soundtrack featuring indie-electronica-rockers Kasabian for upcoming action-adventure Alan Wake: American NightmareEMI Music Publishing Scandinavia and Remedy Entertainment have announced that Remedy’s upcoming XBLA title Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will feature a duo of EMI songwriters and composers, namely “Club Foot” which is performed by British indie-electronica-rockers Kasabian and “Watching the Sun Come Up” by English singer-songwriter and Mercury-Prize winner Ed Harcourt.
Andreas Olsson, VP Sales at EMI Music Publishing Scandinavia comments on the choice,
Having already worked with Remedy on their previous Alan Wake title we were more than happy to continue our relationship with them and I believe that our combined ability to select and supervise moody tracks for Remedy’s upcoming action-adventure will result in a better gameplay experience.Oskari Häkkinen, Head of Franchise Development at Remedy adds that,
Music played an important role in the original Alan Wake and we’ve carried that tradition over to American Nightmare with an exceptionally strong selection of original and licensed songs and to spice things up a little more, Alan’s old-time buddy and literary agent Barry Wheeler has become the manager of the game’s seminal rock-band Old Gods of Asgard - expect a brand new single to be included with the game!About Alan Wake’s American Nightmare
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare features content and technology normally reserved for retail titles with the aim to push the envelope of digitally distributed titles to the limit.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is written as a stand-alone action-adventure that anyone can pick up and play even if they have never played the original game. Fans already familiar with the Alan Wake universe will find themselves right at home though, as it includes plenty of optional content to take the story forward. In addition to the game’s story mode, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare also introduces FIGHT TILL DAWN, a new, fast-paced, over-the-top arcade mode that offers fresh enemy designs, new weapons, online leaderboards and plenty of unlockable rewards.
