SPIN has partnered with our good pals at 2K Sports to help curate a 13-song soundtrack for Major League Baseball 2K12, the ninth iteration of the ever-popular MLB 2K series. The game, due in stores on March 6, marks the first time that the joystick-jockeys at SPIN have collaborated on a video game soundtrack, and we were sure to include a exclusive original track by our favorite Alabama grinders G-Side (read our feature!), the synthtastic "Put Me in the Game."
Says our trusty editorial director Charles Aaron: "When the match is right, music and sports can complement each other in a profound way, so curating SPIN’s first video game soundtrack was an exciting challenge. We were thrilled to be asked by 2K Sports, and took seriously the responsibility of sharing some of our favorite tracks with MLB fans."
Check out the full track list and Bass Drum of Death-soundtracked trailer below! Stay tuned to SPIN for a full G-Side download, coming soon! Unlike SPIN magazine, MLB 2K12 is rated E for everyone!
