Minecraft's Nether update will include new tracks from Celeste composer Lena Raine

Top-notch tracks

Minecraft already has an unbelievable soundtrack thanks to composer C418, but things are about to get even better. Mojang has confirmed that Lena Raine, composer from Celeste, is going to have some new tracks in the upcoming Nether update. Raine shared some comments on her work, which you can read below.

"One of the primary instruments in Minecraft is the piano, and so one of my challenges to myself was to see how far I could push the sound of the piano until it resembled other things entirely–again, that alchemical process. I wanted each piece to feel like a progression of emotions, or a journey from place to place within this other world. There's a degree of beauty to the Nether, but it is also terrifying in both its details and scale."

As for the tracks Lena is composing, they include "Rubedo" in the Nether Wastes, "Chrysopoeia" in the Crimson Forests, and "So Below" in the Soulsand Valleys and in Basalt Deltas.
