Broken Age's full original score will be released digitally tomorrow, April 28, coinciding with the launch of the game's second act, music label Sumthing Else Music Works announced today.

Peter O'Connell's lush, beautiful score has been available since the first act of Broken Age launched in January 2014, but only via developer Double Fine Productions' Bandcamp page for $8, or via Steam as downloadable content for Broken Age. Steam customers can buy the album on its own for $6.99, or get it in a bundle with the full game for $29.99, a $2 savings over the stand-alone soundtrack price.

In both cases, the existing album isn't the full soundtrack. A Sumthing Else representative told Polygon that tomorrow's release of Broken Age Original Soundtrack contains an additional eight tracks from Act 2 of Broken Age. Two of the original release's tracks were consolidated into one, and the new songs bring the total up from 23 to 30.

The album will be available through Sumthing Else's website ($9.99), Amazon MP3 ($8.99), iTunes ($9.99), and "Spotify, Rdio and all streaming services," according to the rep. As for customers who have purchased the existing digital album on Steam or Bandcamp, a Double Fine representative told Polygon that both Steam and Bandcamp "will be updated tomorrow with all the final tracks" at no additional cost.

"I'm so excited at the release of the complete original soundtrack to Broken Age," said McConnell in a press release. "It's been quite a musical journey, over two years in the making. I'm especially glad to have been able to work with such tremendous musicians as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The New Vocal String Quartet and the band, Clarinet Thing. They truly bring the music to life."

Sumthing Else also announced that following tomorrow's digital release, a physical CD version of Broken Age Original Soundtrack will be available in June. That package will cost $11.98.

Act 2 of Broken Age launches tomorrow on iOS, Linux, Mac, Ouya and Windows PC. The full game arrives the same day on Android, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
