Wang’s latest track, released yesterday (November 3), was accompanied by a cinematic that tells the story of League of Legends‘ Empyrean universe. In it, one version of Pyke travels across the multiverse to kill other versions of himself before destroying their respective universes.
“And this is not a warning / This is not a test / I’m zeroed in on you and I’m coming for the rest,” Wang sings at the end of the track.
According to a press release from game developer Riot Games, ‘Fire to the Fuse’ serves as the theme song for League of Legends’ Empyrean skin line, which was also released at the same time as the track.
Wang is set to perform ‘Fire to the Fuse’ live for the first time at the League of Legends World Championship opening ceremony. The ceremony, happening at San Francisco’s Chase Center on November 5, will see Wang performing alongside rapper Lil Nas X and singers Edda Hayes and Louis Leibfried.
Prior to the release of ‘Fire to the Fuse’, Wang’s most recent music endeavour was the release of ‘Magic Man’, his second full-length album as a soloist. That record featured 10 tracks, including pre-release singles ‘Blow’, ‘Cruel’ and ‘Blue’, all of which received accompanying video treatments.
