Available everywhere now, the album features music written by both Eshkeri and Umebayashi for the latest action-adventure game from Sony Interactive Entertainment. Included in the album are tracks written by Eshkeri that serve as the sonic companion to the game's narrative, as well as music written by Umebayashi for the exploratory, open world dimension of the game. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, Ghost of Tsushima is now available for PlayStation®4 (PS4™) system.
Of the soundtrack, composer ILAN ESHKERI says, "Ghost of Tsushima is such a beautiful game set in a culture that has always fascinated me, with a powerful and compelling story.

The score brings together Japanese music and instruments, with sounds I've performed and a symphony orchestra all led by melody. I hope together it creates an emotional world that touches you and draws you into the heart and spirit of Ghost."
