LittleBigPlanet 2 Will Feature...Electronic Music

Electronic musician Christopher Leary (aka Ochre) has taken to Twitter today, pleased as punch to officially announce the inclusion of one of his songs in Sony's upcoming LittleBigPlanet 2. Whether Sony is as happy remains to be seen.

That's because while Leary is only too keen to go speaking publicly of the game's existence, Sony, the publisher of LittleBigPlanet, has made no such mention, making this the first we've actually heard of the sequel.

Not the most ideal way for a major first-party game to be announced, but there are much worse. Leary is, after all, a fine exponent of what I call "work music" (see Jon Hopkins, Ulrich Schnauss), and his stuff is a great fit for the game.
