The album accompanies the new anticipated Hideo Kojima video game and also features offerings from Major Lazer x Khalid, Au/Ra x Alan Walker, The Neighbourhood, Flora Cash, MISSIO and The S.L.P.
The titular track comes from Chvrches, and you can listen to it in full below.
“We were really excited about the opportunity to work with Kojima because we have been fans of his work for a long time,” said Chvrches.
“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.”
