Announced The Tomb Raider Suit
Nathan McCree is returning to his roots with a new musical endeavor titled The Tomb Raider Suite.
The collection will include all classic compositions, as well as extensions and variations of original tracks from the first three Tomb Raider titles. The suite will then be recorded by a live orchestra at the famous Abbey Road Studios, and released for purchase on CD and digital download this autumn.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the music as I had always intended it,” said McCree.
Alongside the album, a live performance of the suite is planned at a major venue in London to correspond with the official 20th anniversary of the original Tomb Raider’s release in 1996. More details and ticketing information will be made available at a later date.
The entire process – from re-composing the tracks to the final live concert – will be recorded for a TV documentary called Tomb Raider: Remastered. Director Matthew Longfellow, a leader in music documentaries for his work with legends such as Pink Floyd, Metallica, and Queen, will take the helm of the documentary.
Throughout 2016 Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and our passionate community will be celebrating 20 years of an icon.
