Johnny and Jun are doubling down this year with their own album: Driving Through Forever: The Ultimate Crush 40 Collection, listing all their best hits from the last 20 years. Unlike Maximum Overdrive, which lists multiple artists with Jun Senoue, this is all only Crush 40. There are multiple Internet listings, from Amazon UK to Tower Records JP, ranging for around $25-$30 depending on the seller. Four tracks are already confirmed with classics like: Open Your Heart, Live & Learn, Sonic Heroes, and Green Light Ride.
The Sonic the Hedgehog social media page has uploaded a new video showcasing a behind the scenes look of the music being composed for Team Sonic Racing featuring Sonic the Hedgehog music veteran, Jun Senoue and many other musicians. The video features sample tunes of many tracks such as Boo’s House, Frozen Junkyard, Market Street, and Green Light Ride.
As this is part 1 of Making of the Music for Team Sonic Racing, it would be cool to see Tee Lopes and Hyper Potions at work on video for part 2. Like the music for Team Sonic Racing? Let us know on the comments below.
SEGA has announced a new track and released a sample of a new tune for the upcoming Team Sonic Racing. It has been previously revealed that the game will have a mix of new and returning tracks, and this time we have Ocean View from Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (based on Ocean Palace from Sonic Heroes). To accompany the track is a remix of a familiar tune by Jun Senoue who has partnered with artists Richard Jaques & S.A.M.E. You can listen to the remix of Sonic CD‘s “You Can Do Anything” above.
In the comments below, let us know what you think of the track and tune!
Here’s a nice pick-me-up after the awful Sonic the Hedgehog movie reveal news from earlier this week! Next year’s Team Sonic Racing will feature a desert track called Sand Road which is a nod to Sonic Adventure‘s Sand Hill. The track will feature music from Tee Lopes and Jun Senoue, which is a new take on the classic Sand Hill music. Overall it looks and sounds very cool. It’s clear that SEGA’s postponement of Team Sonic Racing is for the best, and these drip feeds of music and track reveals are a great way to keep fans excited before the game’s release.

North and South America will have ‘special launch edition’ version of the game that will include a bonus soundtrack CD that includes tracks from SEGA composers like Teruhiko Nakagawa, Naofumi Hataya, Kenichi Tokoi, and Jun Senoue. This will only be available to pre-orders and day one copies.
