Super Meat Boy on PS4 is getting a new soundtrack due to licensing problems. Sony has confirmed that they couldn't secure the rights to include the old soundtrack for the release of the game on PS4 and PS Vita.
The reason for this is that composer Danny Baranowsky no longer has "a working relationship with Team Meat", as he explained. He was approached by Sony and Team Meat (whom he stresses he has no problems with), but he "didn't feel like the license fee and exposure through PSN they offered was enough to make me seriously consider accepting the deal."
The new soundtrack has done by a few notable composers that have worked across a range of indie game soundtracks:
- Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans, known as Ridiculon, provided the bulk of the soundtrack. They took care of The Forest, Hell, The Rapture, and The End, as well as the intro music and title screen. They also re-scored all of the cutscenes and miscellaneous ditties.
- David "Scattle" Scatliffe of Hotline Miami fame used his unique moody style to create the tracks for The Hospital and the Salt Factory.
- Laura Shigihara (Plants vs. Zombies) scored The Cotton Alley in her style to give Bandage Girl's levels a gentle, feminine touch.
