News recently dropped that the upcoming Terraria 1.3 update will include some new music from composer Scott Lloyd Shelly. Re-Logic created a new trailer to show off part of a new song you need to check out. One of the coolest parts about the Terraria 1.2 update was the new music and I am very excited to hear we are getting more(amongst other things). I decided to reach out to Scott and ask him a few questions about how the music for 1.3 is progressing and he was nice enough to get back to me.

Scott recommended that we checkout the Terraria GDC blog as they will drop more Re-Logic and Terraria news over the week.

jdodson: I just listened to the new music spoiler from the 1.3 update and I am really happy to hear the update is including more music. How long have you been working on the new music and have you written all of it yet?

Scott Lloyd Shelly: I'm counting 9 tracks right now; I get a request every month or so for a new one. Don't know if they'll be wanting or needing more than that at this point, but I'm always into doing more music for Terraria - totally fun for me.

jdodson: What track in the 1.3 update stands out to you as some you are especially proud of?

Scott Lloyd Shelly: The track that Re-Logic released with the 1.3 music spoiler on YouTube recently is one of my faves - love the DJ!

jdodson: When the Terraria 1.2 update hit we got the Terraria Soundtrack Volume 2. Are we going to get a Terraria Soundtrack Volume 3 when the 1.3 update launches?

Scott Lloyd Shelly: The previous 2 OSTs included 13 tracks each; if we take the 9 from 1.3 and add a few from the Xbox/Playstation ports, we could have a third OST:) (If we all ask 'em really nicely.)

jdodson: Last time we talked you mentioned some of your favorite game scores and composers. Have you heard anything since you really enjoyed? I'd have to put my chips on the Reaper of Souls and Risk of Rain recent scores.

Scott Lloyd Shelly: I'm looking forward to binge-listening to a whole stack of soundtracks; Braid, Freedom Planet, Tomb Raider Anniversary, RetroCity Rampage, Portal 2, Skyrim (4 cds - go Jeremy Soule), but I'm going to take your suggestions and follow up on Reaper of Souls and Risk of Rain. My favourite just for enjoyable listening right now is probably Alessandro Coronas' work on Where Is My Heart.

There are console-exclusive songs? I had no idea.

A bit more about it on one of the Terraria wikis. Search for "exclusive" on the page.

Awesome! I love this piece of music they released!!!! I found out about this spoiler from the Terraria forums (http://forums.terraria.org/index.php?threads/sampling-the-sounds-of-1-3.13064/). Someone also posted a link to the soundtrack (https://re-logic.bandcamp.com/album/terraria-soundtrack). It is cool that we can listen to the soundtrack and buy both volumes. I think Terraria has a great soundtrack!

Terraria's music is seriously some of my absolute favorite game music. It's right up there with my list of faves such as pretty much everything early Squaresoft days (16 and 32 bit era) and CSoTN soundtrack.

I totally agree Jason, the Terraria one of the best i've heard in the last 5 years. That said recently i've been binging on the Double Find Adventure videos featuring music by Lifeformed and I have really been impressed with that lately.

A new, small video was released today, which comes with something very special at the end. =)
