Disney Interactive is bringing together an exciting lineup of musicians to the ‘Disney Infinity’ in-game soundtrack including, Daft Punk, Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino and more. Each of these songs, initially from Disney & Pixar movies, will be featured in the Toy Box mode – where players can build and customize their own unique virtual world using their favorite character, vehicles, settings and accessories from the Disney & Pixar family.
On this year’s Record Store Day (April 16), Walt Disney Records will release a limited edition 10″ vinyl record titled Translucence which features 4 songs from the TRON: Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk: ‘Derezzed, ‘TRON: Legacy,’ ‘End of Line’ and ‘Castor.’
The record, designed to look like an identity disc from the films will be available in red, orange and yellow colors and will be packaged as shown, so the record will be on complete display. It’s expected to retail for about $15.

The TRON: Legacy soundtrack marks Daft Punk’s best sales week and is their highest-charting album ever. The duo’s previous best week was 2001′s Discovery, which debuted at No. 44, with 34,000 units.

Filled with behind-the-scenes photos, videos and more, there are also a few gems that have yet to have been formally introduced to the public at large which includes Daft’s Punk original score for TRON: Legacy, ‘I See The Light‘ performed by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi from Disney’s Tangled and even the screenplay to Toy Story 3.
