Minecraft Gets New Music from Kumi Tanioka and Lena Raine

Mojang has announced Minecraft gets new music from acclaimed composers Kumi Tanioka and Lena Raine, via the game’s latest snapshot and cumulative update.

While Minecraft gets new music in snapshot 21w42a, the new music is coming as part of the previously detailed Cliffs & Caves update, since its second part hasn’t release yet.

Out of the ten new tracks released in the new snapshot, seven are from Lena Raine (Celeste, Minecraft’s Nether update, etc) and three are from Kumi Tanioka (Final Fantasy, Ragnarok Odyssey, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, etc).

The ten new tracks can be listened to over on Spotify, with the music coming to other streaming services “a bit later.”

The new snapshot doesn’t really add much else – smaller things like a new autosave indicator for single-player worlds and minor tweaks to world generation were also added.

In recent news, Mojang announced the new Minecraft The Wild update, but it isn’t coming until sometime in 2022. The aforementioned Cliffs & Caves part two update is releasing sometime later in 2021.

Minecraft is available for Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via the official website), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire, Amazon Fire, and Fire TV. The Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions have been discontinued and are no longer supported.
