Portal 2: Songs To Test By Soundtrack Spans Four Discs

Valve is partnering with Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings label to release Portal 2: Songs To Test By (Collector's Edition) on October 30, 2012, a four-disc collection of music pulled from the publisher's award-winning Portal games. The first three discs are comparable with the free digital Portal 2 soundtrack, Songs To Test By, with the fourth compiling music from the first game, a press release confirms.

The physical release also includes a mini-comic called "Turret Lullaby," though Joystiq points out that the same content can be viewed online as well. Most of the music contained on the four discs was composed by Valve, though the set includes both of Jonathan Coulton's contributions to the series -- "Still Alive" and "Want You Gone" -- along with vocals on several tracks from Ellen McLaine, the opera singer who voices GLaDOS.

Valve finds a familiar partner in Ipecac, the label founded by Mike Patton and his manager, Greg Werckman, in 1999. Patton is well-known in the music world as the lead singer of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, not to mention less high-profile projects like Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Tomahawk, and Mondo Cane.

Gamers may know Patton as well for his vocal contributions to various titles, notably the titular evil force in The Darkness series. He's also worked with Valve in the past, on Portal and both Left 4 Dead games.
