Batman: Arkham City - The Album

Batman: Arkham City – The Album

Published On September 8, 2011 | By Justin Ortiz-Burrow | News

Warner Bros and WaterTower Music have announced that they will be releasing Batman: Arkham City – ‘The Album’ in October. Featuring 12-tracks inspired by the game, from artists such as Panic! At The Disco, Coheed and Cambria, Serj Tankian, and others. A download code for the album will be also bundled with Collector’s Editions of Arkham City.

Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria stated, “I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My goal was to find universal themes from Batman’s existing history to help give the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that world.

Here is the complete songlist:

1. Panic! At The Disco – Mercenary
2. Coheed and Cambria – Deranged
3. The Duke Spirit – Creature
4. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Shadow On The Run
5. Blaqk Audio – Afterdark
6. The Raveonettes – Oh, Stranger
7. ††† (Crosses) – The Years
8. The Damned Things – Trophy Widow
9. Daughtry – Drown In You
10. The Boxer Rebellion – Losing You
11. Serj Tankian – Total Paranoia

Bonus Collector’s Edition track
12. A Place to Bury Strangers – In The Shadow

Personally, noKiss From A Rose” by Seal, no sale. But that’s just me.

Batman: Arkham City – The Album set to release October 4th, and the game itself October 18th in North America and October 21st in Europe.
