In my last post I mentioned how much I loved the sea shanty that accompanied the E3 trailer for Sea of Thieves, but I wanted to know more. I did a bit of searching in the Sea of Thieves forums and sure enough there is already a thread about it. Turns out I’m not the only one clamoring to buy the song.
In the thread, a Rare employee reveals the name of the song as We Shall Sail Together, and implicitly confirms it was composed and recorded specifically for Sea of Thieves. They don’t have intentions to sell it, but have released a clean version on their YouTube channel.
will be releasing a clean version (no guns or explosions and full length) through their YouTube channel sometime next week.
Until the clean version is released, we get to listen to a live version recorded on the floor at E3. Brilliant shanty, and a great live performance considering they were missing instruments and it seemed quite impromptu.
