There are a total of ten new tracks here, including one music disc. Six of the new overworld tracks come courtesy of Lena Raine, perhaps best known for her work on Celeste, and who previously contributed music to the Nether update. Three tracks come courtesy of Kumi Tanioka, a long-time Japanese composer who’s worked on soundtracks for everything from Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles to Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
The new music disc, ‘otherside’, is by Raine and it’s an absolute bop. (Are we still saying ‘bop’ in 2021?) You can find it as a rare drop in stronghold corridor chests, or even more rarely in dungeon chests. Or, you know, you could just open Spotify. The new tracks will be available on other distribution services “a bit later“.
Alas, we still aren’t getting any new contributions from original Minecraft composer Daniel ‘C418’ Rosenfeld, but the excellence of the new tracks keeps that from being too disappointing.
