SEATTLE - March 6, 2020 - Materia Collective is pleased to present the lovable Yooka-Laylee and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair soundtracks on all stores and streaming platforms for the first time. The first Yooka-Laylee soundtrack was released in 2017 but had recently become unavailable whereas 2019's Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair soundtrack was only available on Bandcamp. Music label Materia Collective has come to the rescue to bring the original soundtrack back to fans and ensure wider distribution of Impossible Lair. Enjoy both soundtracks with music composed by Grant Kirkhope, Davis Wise, Steve Burke, Matt Griffin, and Dan Murdoch on all storefronts starting today:

Yooka-Laylee is an open-world platformer from key creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. Players can explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and hoard a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with a big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world's books... and convert them to pure profit!
