CD Projekt Red announced that they have teamed up with ’90s punk band Refused to bring Cyberpunk 2077’s chrome rock band, SAMURAI, to life.
“I’m incredibly excited about having Refused on board for Cyberpunk 2077,” said Marcin Przybyłowicz, Music Director, CD Projekt Red. “I know for a fact there are a lot of fans of the band at the studio, including Piotr Adamczyk, one of the composers working on the game, who came to me with the idea for this collaboration. I’m very happy he did, because the massive riffs, powerful drums, and hard-hitting vocals the guys from Refused deliver as SAMURAI have blown me away,” added Przybyłowicz. “I can wholeheartedly say the punk factor of Cyberpunk 2077’s music is through the roof!”
Fans have already heard one song from the group during the E3 2019 Cinematic Trailer where the song Chippin’ In played in the background. Now, the track is available across digital store and streaming services. The band has planned to release other tracks through the partnership and produce an EP that will be featured in the game.
“Like us, SAMURAI is a group of rebels, albeit in a different time and place,” said Dennis Lyxzén, Lead Vocalist of the band Refused. “Working together with CD Projekt Red, writing music and song lyrics for Cyberpunk’s chrome rock icon was fun, but also very different in the creative sense. It was an unexpected challenge that turned out to be right up our alley and really got us going. The songs turned out great and the game looks insane,” added Lyxzén.
Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16, 2020.
