Sumthing Digital set as Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack distributor, official album artwork released [Updated]


Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack

Video-game music release powerhouse Sumthing Digital is to set to digitally publish the 20-track Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack by BAFTA-winning composer Jason Graves. Today the distribution company tweeted the official artwork to grace the cover of the music album:



Tomb Raider releases on March 5th, 2013, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It marks the ninth pillar instalment in the franchise; a "reboot" that emphasizes the reconstructed origins of renowned British heroine, Lara Croft. Composer Graves shared the image on his official Facebook page and also expressed plans to release more music from Tomb Raider via his SoundCloud:

"I am planning on releasing plenty of other TR tracks on SoundCloud, such as the unedited, extended versions of many of the pieces on the commercial release. There's more than 60 minutes of cinematics alone!" - Jason Graves

About Sumthing Distribution: "In 1998, Nile Rodgers started Sumthing Distribution as a nationwide record distributor and creative outlet for independent artists and record labels. The company prides itself on it's ability to permeate the marketplace with many innovative independent projects."
