September 30, 2022 – On the heels of the massive success of the bestselling Audible Original Impact Winter, Skybound Entertainment and Anonymous Content today announced the Impact Winter soundtrack will be released this fall. The soundtrack features original music from the audio series, including scores and tracks “Lost a Friend” by BROODS and the beloved cover of “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine (Anymore)” by Cults. Digital and vinyl physical go on sale on October 28 with pre-orders available through the Skybound Store here.
Impact Winter’s soundtrack release marks Skybound’s first dedicated foray into music distribution. A multiplatform entertainment content company, Skybound has strongholds across a vast network, including film, television, animation, digital programming, video games, comics and merchandise. Impact Winter joins the ranks of The Walking Dead and Invincible as a tentpole property for the company.
“We’re thrilled with the reception we’ve seen for Impact Winter, and a critical part of bringing the podcast to life is delivering an amazing accompanying soundtrack,” said Rick Jacobs, Skybound’s Managing Partner, Linear Content. “As a company focused on multifunctional content, growing our expertise in music production and distribution while highlighting exciting musical talent is a natural extension of our overall business at Skybound.”
From the writer of Pacific Rim, Travis Beacham, Impact Winter debuted earlier this year as the #1 Audible Plus bestseller across categories at its launch, and the #1 Audible Original fiction bestseller in its initial week of launch. This action, romance, and coming-of-age story delivers an unprecedented sonic experience via binaural action sequences, original music and incomparable sound design, all of which come together to bring to life this post-apocalyptic world in visceral detail. Impact Winter is now available via Audible and all major podcast providers, including Apple, where it has ascended as high as #3 on the fiction podcast charts. Skybound also debuted a one-shot prequel comic of the same name in July, available in comic book shops and via digital platforms now.
