Sony Interactive Entertainment and RCA Records have announced that the two companies have partnered together for a full album of original music inspired by the world of Death Stranding, the upcoming PlayStation 4 video game from Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions. The album, Death Stranding: Timefall (Original Music From the World of Death Stranding), isn't itself a complete surprise, but its contents, including a newly released song from CHVRCHES called "Death Stranding", is.
"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," David Bull, Global Brand Manager, SIEA, shared as part of the PlayStation.Blog post revealing the track. "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."
