Death Stranding promises an eerie soundtrack to match its mysterious world and today CHVRCHES has debuted their latest contributions to Hideo Kojima’s latest game. The latest song, appropriately titled Death Stranding, is a haunting melody that CHVRCHES fans will love.
With the tagline of “Original mousic from the world of Death Stranding,” it’s an interesting looking inside of what audiophiles can expect when the mysterious Kojima title finally drops. While we’re all still a little confused by the Monster Energy Drink-filled world with babies and teleportation, at least we can enjoy some sick new tunes while we wait.
According to SIEA Global Brand Manager David Bull, “SIE and Kojima Productions set out to find artists in many different genres whose music evoked some of the key thematic elements in Death Stranding. Each artist on Timefall spent time with the team at SIE, interacting with the game’s story and vibe, coming up with their own unique takes on connection, love, loss, and rebirth. Today, you can hear the first of these, from renowned Scottish anthemic electro-pop group CHVRCHES. After spending time with Mr. Kojima at Kojima Productions in Tokyo, the band were inspired to write an original song. We’re thrilled to share it with you, the first of several hits to come.”
The above Death Stranding song is just one of several original songs inspired by the game to make their debut. According to the official artist roster supplied by Sony, here’s what else PlayStation fans have to look forward to:
- “Trigger” Major Lazer x Khalid
- “Ghost” Au/Ra x Alan Walker
- “Death Stranding” CHVRCHES
- “YELLOW BOX” The Neighbourhood
- “Meanwhile…In Genova” The S.L.P.
