For those not following Grant Kirkhope, one of Yooka-Laylee's musicians, he posted this video onto Facebook an hour ago. Very short, but sounds awesome as always. :)

Thanks for posting this!

Music sounds nice, I wonder if its for a level or the Hub World?

Sounds the same as the jungle theme?

Sound like Banjo Kazooie Grant.

I am fine and all with that but I hope you are trying to give Yooka Laylee it's own personality too. I know it's too early to tell since we've basically heard nothing yet but there needs to be a balance between familiarity and something fresh. Based on these few seconds it sounds like it's straight out of BK/BT. Maybe a bit less Marimba and more sexy Sax? 8-)

Sounds very familiar to the Theme of Cloud Cuckooland, but still it's different.

Well Marimba and Grant, you always know who makes the good music.

Grants songs are always really cool in how they build, progress and change. This clip feels strange because it has a sense of moving/transitioning. It starts with that chord, clearly ending a different section, and then feels like it's moving someplace else

It's a cool sound, a lovely clip, but will need to hear more to understand where he's going with it.

Grants composed so much since BK/BT. He continually proves himself to be skilled at what he does. I have no doubt YL will be its own thing ... Grant wouldn't just rehash. Listen to the different arrangements of Jungle World -- such fun!
But I have to agree with anyone asking for more sax!

I love Grant's music being in a similar style to the Banjo games. It ties the worlds together and makes it feel like a true spritual successor. I love the Banjo soundtrack, so I hope Grant continues to compose Banjo-esque pieces for Yooka-Laylee. David Wise and the other musicians can deliver more than enough music variety in minigames etc.

Love it! My only wish is that there were like ten more seconds of it. Or minutes, either or.
Make the forum great again.
