Chvrches released a new single today, “Death Stranding.” The song is from the soundtrack to the videogame Death Stranding created by Japanese-auteur Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid), due out November 8th on Sony Playstation.
The soundtrack, entitled Death Stranding: Timefall also includes tracks by Bring Me the Horizon, Major Lazer and MISSIO. The music inspired by the videogame drops on November 7th from RCA/Sony Music.
Chvrches had this to say about the inspiration for the track:
“We were really excited about the opportunity to work with Kojima because we have been fans of his work for a long time. He has always been such a visionary in the gaming world and we were honoured to be involved in the project. The concept of “Death Stranding” is so unique and really felt to us like it was challenging people to care about the world they create—in the game and otherwise. We wrote this song specifically for “Death Stranding,” thinking of the themes of the game and what it is trying to say to people.”
