BioShock 2 soundtrack digital release: February 9th

We heard that the BioShock 2 soundtrack was coming earlier, but now we have an official date and tracklist.

A press release confirms that the return to Rapture again features jazz and pop classics from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Surely you remember being creeped out by the old timey tunes in the original. There’s more of that, which is great news. The digital soundtrack will be hitting iTunes and the like on February 9th, the same day the game launches.

Want a head start? Today you can listen to music from the soundtrack and other selections inspired by Bioshock 2 on Rapture Radio, where they’re broadcasting live from the Kashmir Restaurant and counting down the days until New Year’s Eve, 1959. I’ve been listening this in morning. It’s practically making me salivate for the game release.

Below the jump you’ll find the tracklistings for both the Standard and Deluxe editions of the soundtrack. I’ll be speaking with 2K later today on BioShock 2‘s soundtrack, so let me know if you have any questions.
