Lakeshore Records in partnership with Ubisoft are set to release Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Wave of Giants on both “Opaque White” vinyl and a special limited-edition “Evergreen” vinyl that feature music by Norwegian musician Einar Selvik of folk/world band Wardruna. Selvik shares ten evocative tracks steeped in Nordic musical traditions that further enliven the authentic ethnography of the Viking culture in the best-selling game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Selvik is well known for his work on The History Channel’s “Vikings” series.
The opaque white edition will be released on June 4 and available at major retailers.

Bandcamp recently caught up with Assassin’s Creed Valhallacomposers Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner to talk about the unique instrumentation used and how the music was created to instill the many memorable music moments in the best-selling open-world game from Ubisoft! We learn how all three artists (including Einar Selvik) collaborated across three countries to produce this hit video game soundtrack that has been all the rage since its October 2020 release via Lakeshore Records and Ubisoft Music. We also learn about Sarah Schachner’s childhood fascination with Vikings – it’s quite a story that brings her involvement full-circle with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla! Check out the full interview now at Bandcamp.
Lakeshore Records in partnership with Ubisoft have released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Great North featuring music by BAFTA Award-winning Danish music artist Jesper Kyd, the beloved composer of the Ezio trilogy as well as the first Assassin’s Creed. Kyd considers this album to be his definitive complete score to the game which includes all of the tracks on the original game soundtrack, plus 29 extras—almost 21/2 hours of music.
