With Original Score By Oscar®-Nominee John Debney Featuring The Single “Finally Here" Performed by Ruthie Collins

(July 27, 2018– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records today announced a new partnership with Electronic Arts to release the best of EA Games’ original scores and soundtracks. The premiere release in this agreement will be Oscar®-nominee John Debney’s soundtrack to LONGSHOT: HOMECOMING, the groundbreaking story mode within MADDEN NFL 19, available August 10, 2018. The soundtrack also features the original song "Finally Here" performed by country artist Ruthie Collins, which will be released as a single on July 27th.

Oscar®-nominee Debney is known for acclaimed film scores that include Sin City, The Jungle Book, The Greatest Showman and his Academy Award® nominated The Last Temptation Of Christ. Singer/songwriter Ruthie Collins was hailed as ‘Country’s Best Traditionalist’ by Rolling Stone and named one of CMT’s ‘Next Women Of Country’, who called her “a singing, songwriting, guitar and banjo-playing, Airstream-owning, Dolly Parton-loving breath of fresh air.”

“Lakeshore Records is incredibly excited to be working with EA Games to release some of the absolute very best soundtracks by some of the very best composers working in visual media today,” said President of Lakeshore Records, Brian McNelis. “We are staring this wonderful partnership by working with Electronic Arts to release LONGSHOT: HOMECOMING composed by legendary composer John Debney and the original single performed by Ruthie Collins. It is an honor to be invited to work with such talented people on such great projects and we hope working with EA will continue to elevate the awareness and status of game music while providing the best possible services to the community.”

In addition to releasing new soundtracks for upcoming EA titles, Lakeshore Records will also be releasing soundtracks from the vast EA Games catalog, including first ever soundtrack releases and reissues of out-of-print recordings. In the next few weeks, Lakeshore will be announcing releases of catalog titles including the soundtracks for top-selling EA Games franchises that include Dragon Age, Battlefield, Mass Effect, Need For Speed, Command & Conquer, Titanfall, Medal Of Honor, and The Sims.

“Lakeshore has proven themselves to be at the next level of marketing and streaming for the very best film and television music being created today,” says Electronic Arts Worldwide Executive of Music Steve Schnur. “And because they appreciate and understand the medium and its fans like no other label, we’re proud to be their first-ever videogame partners. EA's composers, among the top talents in movies, television and games, are equally excited about the skill and fervor Lakeshore brings to the table. We’re confident that John Debney’s outstanding score for LONGSHOT HOMECOMING is the perfect kick-off to an exciting future for the art – and commerce – of videogame music.”

Good question. I'm hoping for some CDs. I've seen EA game soundtrack available on Amazon as MP3s, so hopefully this signals the time for physical format releases.

Oh my, talk about the unexpected. And it is not LLLR that's up for the task? Color me surprised.

Now then, bring on that amazing Romulus 3 cue form Need For Speed III (1998). I am happy to pay the full price of a CD for that cue alone!

Put all those previously unreleased Latin/Bosa Nova tunes from Sims 1 soundtrack on a new album you will have another sale!

The best NFS soundtrack is NFS II: SE and this is also the best game in the entire franchise.

So when it that Debney score getting released on CD?

It's not unreasonable to ask about a CD, so why is a PR company not answering to help with, oh, PR?

I wish there had been samples. All I found were some game clips on Youtube which have too much SFX to hear the music clearly.

I don't think that CD is even possible, but this is Lakeshore's problem, not mine. No CD = no sale. A simple story.
