Soundtrack to Agent 47's Latest Adventure Released in Stores on May 30th

New York - May 5th, 2006 - Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., through a licensing relationship with Eidos Interactive, announces the upcoming release of the Hitman: Blood MoneyT Original Soundtrack. The soundtrack album from the latest installment in the multi million selling Hitman franchise will be released on May 30th at European and US retail and online outlets through Nile Rodgers' Sumthing Else Music Works label, the industry leader for licensing and distributing video game soundtracks.

The Hitman: Blood Money Original Soundtrack features over an hour of original music from the game written and produced by British Academy award-winning composer Jesper Kyd. His powerful blend of ambient, electronic and symphonic orchestrations beautifully enhances the cool, dark cinematic flair of the Hitman series and evokes the sinister mindset of the world's most deadly assassin Agent 47 as he travels to America and prepares to make a killing.

Highlights from the 16-track album include the operatic, choral crescendos and foreboding drums of "Apocalypse," the surreal soundscapes capturing "Night Time in New Orleans," the retro lounge vibe of "Vegas," the hypnotic underground dance grooves of "Club Heaven," and the Hitman: Blood Money theme, "Agent 47 Main Title."

Nile Rodgers, veteran music producer and Sumthing Else label founder, said, "Jesper Kyd is one of the most cutting-edge and unique composers writing music for ANY medium. Whether he's scoring a video game or movie it's sure to be a hit and once you've heard the Hitman: Blood Money soundtrack his music will own you!"

Hitman: Blood Money delivers an experience that is the closest gamers will ever have come to the real world of the assassin. Developed by Io-Interactive, Hitman: Blood Money is released in May 2006 on Xbox 360T, Xbox®, PlayStation®2, and PC. For more information visit
