When it comes to Cyberpunk 2077, many people don’t think about the music that accompanies them throughout their adventures. Still, with the release of Phantom Liberty on September 26th, players will be given some more radio stations to tune into. This includes music from Idris Elba as he has DJ’d numerous unreleased songs that have now become a part of the game’s official soundtrack.
What Radio Stations Are Coming To Cyberpunk 2077, And What Music Is Accompanying them?
Within Cyberpunk 2077, there are already a few different radio stations that players can tune into to get some music playing as they travel around Night City. Still, with the new expansion, Phantom Liberty players will be gaining access to three new radio stations that they can tune into that will hold brand-new songs, some of which have been created by Idris Elba himself as a Rapper and DJ.
Once Phantom Liberty releases, players will gain access to three different radio stations, which will be known as Darkstar Radio, Impulse, and Growl FM. When describing these different radio stations, CD Projekt Red has described Darkstar Radio as fitting with the dark dystopian aspect of Cyberpunk 2077, and it currently has two songs which were rapped and produced by Idris Elba himself.
One of the other radio stations is Impulse, which has been described as Idris Elba’s DJ set, as it will be a culmination of his unreleased songs, which will provide the modern electric music mix that will accompany the player throughout Night City as they cruise through the streets. The final radio station hasn’t had much information released about it, but it will most likely have some interesting songs that add to the feel of the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
Why Was Idris Elba Picked For His Role As Solomon Reed?
Since the beginning of the planning stages for Phantom Liberty and the character Solomon Reed, CD Projekt Red has had its eyes set on Idris Elba as one of its main choices for the role of Solomon Reed. Luckily, Idris Elba felt the same way as he has taken on the part and has done a superb job of it so far, and due to this casting choice, Cyberpunk 2077 has also earned itself a DJ to add to its unique official music.
Even though we have only seen a cinematic trailer with Idris Elba in his role as Solomon Reed, many fans are eager to see this new character in the game as they interact with Solomon Reed to complete the new story that will unfold with Phantom Liberty, whilst listening to the brand-new music that has been acquired for this new DLC.
Many players will be returning to Cyberpunk 2077 with the release of Phantom Liberty, and many will be overjoyed to see Idris Elba take on the part of Solomon Reed as he brings a unique atmosphere to the dark and gritty game that is Cyberpunk 2077, but this just adds more layers to the story and the world that players will have to explore in this upcoming expansion.
