The first Alan Wake is well known for its amazing soundtrack, in terms of both its choice of licensed music (“Haunted” by Poe was my jam for a long time after hearing it while playing Alan Wake when I was in college) and its impressive score by Petri Alanko.

Streaming the Alan Wake 2 soundtrack

Some of these songs are available to listen to on streaming platforms via the Alan Wake II – Chapter Songs album. The album is available on Spotify and Apple Music and features the songs “Follow You Into The Dark,” “Wide Awake,” “Superhero,” “Lost at Sea,” “Dark, Twisted and Cruel,” and “No One Left To Love,” as well as a bonus song called “Night Springs” by Keira. This song isn’t included in the above tracklist as it doesn’t appear in the in-game credits for Alan Wake 2. 

Some of the other songs can also be found on streaming services, such as any of the songs from the Old Gods of Asgard since they have already appeared in other Remedy games. The most prominent of these songs is “Take Control,” which plays in the spin-off game Control by Remedy. 

There isn’t any current news as to whether the rest of the songs will be released together in an album either via streaming platforms or on vinyl, but this could be a possibility if the smaller Alan Wake II – Chapter Songs album is popular.
