Here's something Transformers-shaped for the more musically inclined among you: a collaboration between Hasbro and Sony, featuring a number of artists, resulting in Transformers: Roll Out - a music album with tracks inspired by our favourite giant transforming robots! Read more about it below, here, and check out two of the tracks embedded below.

Hasbro Studios and Sony Music Entertainment will release a new album of music entirely inspired by the Transformers franchise including alt-rockers Bush, Mount Holly, MEW and more.

Transformers Roll Out will be released April 15 with pre-order starting Tuesday (Feb. 9). Fittingly, upon its release, limited edition CD and vinyl will be offered exclusively through FYE stores.

"The release of Transformers Roll Out truly demonstrates the pop culture power of the Transformers franchise," Hasbro chief content officer Stephen Davis said in a statement. "With generations of audiences celebrating the brand across television, film, digital entertainment, consumer products and now music, this could not be a more exciting time for Hasbro and the Transformers brand with such a unique project that really delivers on the More Than Meets the Eye brand promise."

Starting Tuesday, as well, the compilation released Mount Holly's "Roll Out" and Crash Kings' "Gigantik" lead singles off the set. Listen to those here with a complete album track list below.

Not bad tracks. But nothing to relate it to, so it feels like one of those soundtracks which has music inspired from the content. I'll probably pass on this.

Y'know what's (also) cool about this? The bands/artists are from all over the place, and they include one of the co-writers of 'Everything Is Awesome' from The Lego Movie.

I think it's cool, anyway...

Another note on this topic: the artwork is in fact Ken Christiansen/BadFlip's cover for The Covenant of Primus, as seen here.

I think it's good that new stuff is being put out. However, so far I'm not impressed by the released tracks. Gonna wait to hear the rest before I decide, but seeing as how I have never heard of any of these so-called "artists" I'm fairly certain this will be a pass. Nonetheless, good try, Hasbro. Keep 'em coming!

Yeah, it's a good attempt. But honestly, they would have fared better trying to do English versions of some of the Japanese theme songs but updated for today's audience. When companies put stuff like this out, I just feel that it's a money grab to get fans to unnecessarily buy something.

Then again, we do vote with our wallets, so again, this "inspired" set of tracks is an easy pass for me.

This is weird, and not the good kind. The actual weird kind of weird.

I'm evidently in the minority here, but I actually really like the sound of both of those tracks. I'll have to check out the full album when it's out.

I like the two tracks so far. Anything will do compared to hearing more Linkin Park and Imagine Dragons. No offense to those bands but this sounds like an attempt to conjure the spirit of the 1986 movie soundtrack, which I love, if not for nostalgic reasons alone along with Weird Al and Stan Bush's contributions. I can't wait to hear the rest of thid project. :BOT: :CON:

Fellow Seibetronian SlyTF1 has pointed towards a third track release from the upcoming Transformers: Roll Out music album, a collaboration between Hasbro and Sony, as reported by Fuse.tv - this one is titled Our Revolution, by Born Cages. Check it out here and below!

Next month, Hasbro Studios and Sony Music’s RED Associated Labels will released Transformers Roll Out, a new alt-rock compilation that doubles as a tribute to the Transformers franchise. The new collection will feature Born Cages’ rollicking new track “Our Revolution,” which premieres today (Mar. 4) exclusively on Fuse.

The 10-song compilation also features contributions from Bush, Mew, Ella Rae and Crash Kings. The full set will be released on Apr. 15.

Another track was released from the upcoming Transformers tribute album Roll Out - by Hasbro and Sony - and Nothing but Hope and Passion has a bit of extra info on Mew's Count to Ten. See what they have to say about the track, and check it out for yourselves below!

Sometimes new music by old friends can come in the strangest possible ways. Beloved Danish art rock heroes MEW have shared a brand new piece of music alled Count To Ten – and it was composed for tribute sampler to Transformers. Yes, you read correctly, the famous ‘cars-turn-to-robots’ franchise. The compilation goes by the name Transformers Roll Out and arrives on April 15 via Hasbro Studios and Sony Music RED Associated Labels (RAL) to worship the ‘the global pop-culture Transformers phenomenon’ (according to the press release).

Aside from that, Count To Ten is a wonderful new piece of MEW music, their first one since last year’s album

Never heard of them and couldn't make out any of the words, but here are the lyrics if anyone cares.

Doesn't really feel like a Transformers song to me. Not a fan.

I like the idea of an album like this, I really do. But the songs I've heard so far...none of them really remind me of Transformers or sound anything TF related to me. I'm pretty music-dumb, so maybe it's me. But as a consumer and a TF fan, I'm probably going to pass on this one.

I think the intention is precisely to bring in to some aspect of the franchise people who might not associate these bands with giant robots at all - I know I don't, and I only knew of MEW and Jameson Burt, who definitely have nothing to do with anything robotic. :D

That, and of course doing a little the other way round, though it'll be harder.
TF fans are pretty set in their ways sometimes, taste-wise. :P
