Valheim soundtrack now available on Spotify and Steam 

Experience the atmosphere of the Norse afterlife on the go with Valheim’s 20-track original soundtrack, now available to stream on Spotify and own on Steam! 

SKÖVDE, Sweden – October 29th, 2021: Coffee Stain Publishing and Iron Gate Studio have released the Valheim Official Soundtrack, available to stream free on Spotify and purchase on Steam for $7.99. 

Composed by Swedish-Australian composer Patrik Jarlestam the 20-track OST is performed by Patrik Jarlestam (Guitars, Bases, Percussion), Philippa Murphy-Haste (Clarinet, Viola), Jenean Lee (Cello) and Michael H Dixon (French Horn). The original soundtrack features all 18 of the original tracks from Valheim’s early access launch, as well as two additional bonus tracks from the game’s release and cinematic trailers created by Ghostwood Empire.  

The soundtrack was universally acclaimed when Valheim first launched into early access,  with many suspecting it to be inspired by the norse God of poetry Bragi himself. Accompanying adventurers on an atmospheric journey through a mythical Viking purgatory full of life and legends,  the soundtrack brought the game’s unique landscape and biomes to life.  

Now free to stream on Spotify or purchase on Steam, Vikings can finally enjoy the atmosphere of the afterlife and relive their most epic battles and bountiful feasts – without needing to be confined to Valheim’s purgatory. 

From the mellow melodies of ‘The Meadows’ to the almighty metal strings of “Eikthyr rides” or the howling winds of “The Mountains – High Territory”, the Valheim OST is the perfect accompaniment to a long journey in the real world or over a mug of mead with friends, transporting Vikings back to a land filled with wonder to relive the adventures they’ve experienced.
