Terraria has over ninety music tracks across every version of the game. Each one will play and loop endlessly while the player is in a specific biome or while certain events are taking place. Music is individual to each player, and as such its volume can be lowered or disabled entirely within the settings menu.

The majority of music in Terraria was composed by Scott Lloyd Shelly of Resonance Array.

In the no version, it is possible to record and play these songs in-game using the Music Box accessory.

In the Desktop version Desktop version, each music track can be replaced with a custom file through the use of Resource Packs.


The soundtracks can be listened to and purchased from Steam as two soundtracks: the Terraria: Official Soundtrack includes Volume 1–4, and the Terraria: Otherworld Official Soundtrack includes the Otherworld tracks. The first three volumes can be purchased from Bandcamp individually. The first two volumes are also included when the game is bought on Tracks are listed in the order they appear on the soundtrack.

Old-gen console and 3DS/ Mobile 1.2 soundtracks

The console soundtrack features a mix of the desktop soundtrack and several additional tracks which are listed below. Although Blake Robinson was commissioned to create the music for the trailers, the in-game music was created by Scott Lloyd Shelly.

Desktop version 1.2 adopted the console version's "Desert" track as is, but introduced its own "Snow" and "Boss 4" themes, using the console tracks instead respectively as "Ice" and "Boss 5". When the console version caught up with version desktop 1.2, it kept its own original "Snow" and "Boss 4" themes as they were, instead swapping the desktop's tracks to the Ice and Boss 5 slots.

Terraria: Otherworld (Otherworldly Tracks)

The soundtrack originally written for the cancelled game Terraria: Otherworld was added to Terraria with the Journey's End update. It features 27 themes. In-game, the Party Girl NPC can be used to switch between normal music and "otherworldly" music after a world with the 05162020 world seed has been visited for the first time. Tracks follow the same naming convention as Terraria's, resulting in some duplicated names (music boxes for these songs disambiguate by being called "Otherworldly Music Box" instead of just "Music Box"), but there are less songs in total: for example there are only two "generic" boss music and a single track for all invasion events. Interestingly, the Wall of Flesh gets a unique theme with this soundtrack, instead of sharing the Boss 2 theme with The Twins. Plantera, the Moon Lord, and the Lunar Events also get unique tracks, as in the regular soundtrack. Most pre-hardmode bosses get the Boss 1 theme; all other hardmode bosses get the Boss 2 theme.

The Terraria: Otherworld soundtrack was released on Steam on June 17, 2020. It was composed by Jeff Broadbent, Jonathan van den Wijngaarden, and James Hannigan, also featuring Jeff Ball on violin, Tina Guo on cello, and Franck Klepacki on guitar. The album version features 26 songs, one fewer than the 27 in-game tracks with the missing song being the Wall of Flesh's theme. The album songs also differ from the in-game songs by being much longer and holding various instrumental enhancements.

# Title Condition[1] Album Version Listen Description
1 Overworld Day Vol. 1 1.0 It is a cheerful, upbeat, and simple tune.
2 Eerie Vol. 1 1.0 It is slower and more sinister than most other tracks. On Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, replaced by Underworld. At release, it also played in Corruption, Dungeon, and Underworld.
3 Overworld Night Vol. 1 1.0 It is relatively peaceful and relaxing, but its tune is a minor one.
4 Underground Vol. 1 1.0 It is a fast and whimsical track, with an almost robotic tone.
5 Boss 1 Vol. 1 1.0 Loud and frantic battle music. Also played for Duke Fishron before, and on Old-gen console version Old-gen console for the Goblin Army.
6 Title Screen
  • Title screen
Vol. 1 1.0 A serene, solemn tune, but short and hooking, this was played on the main menu before it was replaced with Journey's Beginning. It still plays in-game when the sun or moon is dragged.
7 Jungle Vol. 1 1.0.5 An exotic, relaxed tune, it has a unique feel to it with a heavy emphasis on percussion.
8 Corruption Vol. 1 1.0.6 Its melody somewhat resembles the Overworld Day track but altered and slowed to sound much darker and more menacing.
9 The Hallow Vol. 1 1.1 It has a very happy, heavenly tone and makes use of instruments related to this idea, especially the harp. It shares a lot of its melody with Overworld Day.
10 Underground Corruption Vol. 1 1.1 This track is a combination of Corruption and Underground tracks, with a depressing and dark tone.
11 Underground Hallow Vol. 1 1.1 This track is a combination of the Hallow and Underground tracks. It shares the heavenly tone of the Hallow tracks, but with a faster-paced, electronic tune.
12 Boss 2 Vol. 1 1.1 It is a very hectic, frantic tune, and gives the feel of a chase, fear and horror, especially at the beginning.
13 Boss 3 Vol. 1 1.1 It is much slower and less intense than the other boss fights, the slowest track in the soundtrack, giving it a more menacing and mechanical tone, suiting most of the situations it plays in (e.g in the boss fights between Brain of Cthulhu and The Destroyer).
14 Ice/Snow Vol. 2 1.2 A relaxed, somewhat slow-paced theme with a distinct, cold, and crystalline feel. Originally introduced on Old-gen console version Old-gen console as "Ice", it was later renamed "Snow" since the desktop version introduced its own "Ice" theme.
15 Space Night Vol. 2 1.2 A quick and carefree theme that makes use of many airy synths and shares some of its instruments with the Overworld Day theme. Contains a motif of Underground.
16 Crimson Vol. 2 1.2 An unnerving, dark, and unsettling theme with a faster pace than that of the Corruption. Its main melody comes near the end of the track.
17 Golem/Boss 4 Vol. 2 1.2 Fast paced without being particularly dark or menacing.
18 Alternate Day Vol. 2 1.2 A cheerful, upbeat tune similar to the Overworld Day theme, but with a more complex composition.

22 Ocean Vol. 2 1.2 It is a tranquil theme with a somewhat slower pace than other daytime themes.
23 Dungeon Vol. 2 1.2 A sinister, dark theme that makes use of various instruments to evoke a sound akin to the echoes of a deep dungeon below.
24 Plantera Vol. 2 1.2 It is a unique, fast rock track with a metal tune and prominent use of electric guitars, and has some melodies from the Jungle soundtrack. As a nod to Cenx's favorite band, Pantera, parts of the track have a similar sound to the end of "Domination" from the album Cowboys from Hell.
25 Queen Bee/Boss 5 Vol. 4 1.2 It is a frenetic, serious theme, which uses sounds resembling bee buzzes and wing hovering. Originally introduced on Old-gen console version Old-gen console as "Boss 4", it was later renamed "Boss 5", since the Desktop version already had its own "Boss 4" theme.
26 Lihzahrd/Temple Vol. 2 1.2 A mysterious and exotic-sounding theme, feeling like being in an ancient world.

34 Lunar Boss/The Towers Vol. 2
Vol. 3 A fast, abstract, and especially intense theme. Originally intended for the final boss, in the two years between the album's release and the introduction of the track in-game, plans had changed. Its album name would be used for the Moon Lord theme.
35 Pirate Invasion Vol. 3 Somewhat reminiscent of the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. Replaced the Golem/Boss 4 theme for this event.
36 Underworld Vol. 3 A deep and menacing track, with an emphasis on harsh percussion. Replaced Eerie theme for this biome. On the Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, this theme replaces all instances of Eerie.

Originally introduced on Old-gen console version Old-gen console as "Ocean", before the Desktop version had its own Ocean theme added. On Old-gen console version Old-gen console versions, it serves as an alternate Ocean theme, both having a 50% chance of playing regardless of time.
44 Windy Day/High Wind Vol. 4 A perky, cheerful, whimsical track, inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh[6]. It includes instruments such as music box, castanets and a tambourine, and is one of the few tracks in the game to not be in 4

(Rage Of Tarunnk)
Otherworld A metal-like track with a sinister and somewhat gloomy feeling, appropriate for the fight against Plantera in the Underground Jungle.

(Sky Guardian)
Otherworld A surprisingly tranquil track which seems to feature hurdy-gurdy music towards its end.

87 Wall of Flesh (Otherworldly) n/a It is a dramatic and at times also heroic-sounding track.
88 Hallow (Otherworldly)
(Postlude - Credits)
Otherworld A track which features angelic, hymn-like female vocals followed by calm piano music. It is the only in-game Otherworld track longer than 2 minutes.
