Official Soundtrack

And finally, we recently released the incredible Tearaway Unfolded soundtrack on iTunes and PlayStation Store, which is available to download NOW. The soundtrack includes a staggering 50 tracks by award-winning composers Kenneth Young and Brian D’Oliveira, who have written over an hour of new music for Tearaway Unfolded.

We sat down with them recently to chat about the soundtrack and how they brought it from handheld to the console world…

“It was a real pleasure for us to revisit the world of Tearaway. Initially, we were a little nervous of living up to expectations [cough]Best Music BAFTA nomination[/cough], but once we got into the swing of things it was very much a case of picking up our collaboration from where we left off.

“Whilst we reworked and augmented some of the music to make it a better fit for the larger world in Unfolded, for the most part we were writing brand new material – there’s over an hour of new music in the game, which is actually kinda crazy, but it’s also a pretty good metric for understanding how different Tearaway Unfolded is on PlayStation 4 compared to Tearaway on PS Vita!

“The official soundtrack album for Tearaway Unfolded is a curated experience which represents the best of that music – almost two hours of infectious folk melodies, a unique blend and mash-up of styles and instrumentation, all perfectly fitting for Media Molecule’s trademark eclecticism.

“Now that it’s available on iTunes and PlayStation Store, we hope that fans will continue to enjoy breaking the fourth wall by bringing a little more of Tearaway Unfolded in to their worlds.”

Kenneth Young & Brian D’Oliveira

You can download the soundtrack now. We hope you enjoy taking the wonderful world of Tearaway Unfolded everywhere you go!

Thanks for reading folks, we look forward to seeing all your festive Messengers on! See you soon!

Ok, now I have to switch from the LBP3 autumn theme to the Tearaway theme.

BTW: I hope there will be a LBP3 winter-theme, too :D

The Soundtrack that came with the preorder pop-up pack still doesn’t work…

Check the discover option in your notifications bar. Sony sent me a new download code for it. Admittedly I have yet to try it burning assume it’s the fixed version.


Thanks, must have missed that notification, it’s indeed the fixed version.

This was one of my favourite games of this year ;) l Loved it :P

I dunno, there hasn’t been a theme yet that has gotten me to change it from the 20th anniversary one :3

Man, remember all that awesome DLC you made for the original Tearaway? Nah, me neither.


DLC for Tearaway on Vita, please? One is a little… too few.

Sweet, I’ll be sure to give the dynamic theme a try. Still my favourite Vita theme too :p
You know what would be awesome? if we started getting soundtracks for free too :p But that might be too much to ask :p

Free Tearaway dynamic theme?! Very good.

I’m still waiting for a 50% OFF sale on this one. I bought the Vita version day one.

Free themes are really appreciated, thank you :)


The dynamic theme is easily the best theme I have seen. So charming and clever, I absolutely love it. Thanks! :)


I bought a Vita for Tearaway and Platinumed it. Ended up selling the Vita because I like systems with first party support, but I rebought it as Tearaway Unfolded on launch day. Wonderful game.

Thanks for the theme!

Long time Tearaway fan here (can you tell?), and I just wanted to thank Media Molecule for being the amazing people they have and still surprising us with small gifts like these. Tearaway was my first platinum and I don’t even like platforming. This game was just so naturally flowing, so amazingly gorgeous and immersive that it could not have gone otherwise. I will pick it up for the PS4 eventually but I really hope MM continues to support Tearaway as a series in the future. I would like little more than to get my hands on a new Tearaway game/DLC levels!


I agree. I just downloaded these today! I Platted the Vita version and keep revisiting Unfolded. I always say that Tearaway is one of those games that gives you the feeling of Christmas morning and this totally enhanced that feel!
