Rockstar’s announced that it’ll release the soundtrack for Max Payne 3 on May 23, while the Song from the TV spot, known as ‘Tears’ (also see video below) will be released on May 15.
The soundtrack comes from LA-based collective Health, who were formed in 2006.
“Working on the soundtrack to Max Payne 3 was a great experience,” said John Famiglietti of HEALTH. “Rockstar gave us the freedom to bring our own sound to Max’s dark story, and we’re really proud of the results.”
“Health have created hundreds of hours of amazing music for the game’s score, and distilled it into a devastatingly moody and atmospheric soundtrack album,” says Rockstar’s soundtrack supervisor, Ivan Pavlovich. “By using a band instead of a traditional composer, we’ve created a soundtrack that sounds completely unique.”
