Halo 4's soundtrack will be composed by former Massive Attack producer Neil Davidge and orchestrated by Inception, Dark Knight and Black Swan arranger Matt Dunkley, Edge reports.

In an interview, the duo, who are taking over for longtime Halo composer Marty O'Donnell (who departed along with Bungie from the franchise), both showed a tremendous amount of respect for the soundtracks of the series' past installments while talking about the new places they'd like to take its music.

"Hopefully the Halo fans will see that we're being respectful," Dunkley said, "but we've also taken it somewhere else, and maybe onto a higher plane. If you're always trying to reference back, you're not creating new things."

You can check out a sample from the game's soundtrack in the video below, and see if you're a fan of Dunkley and Davidge's new direction.
