Here at Sony Interactive Entertainment, we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with RCA Records to release a full album for upcoming PS4 game Death Stranding. Timefall (Original Music From the World of Death Stranding) is named for the mysterious rainfall that affects all it touches, while its songs find their inspiration in the game’s narrative focus: Sam Bridges and his journey to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from extinction.
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 full tracklist on the Timefall album is as follows:
“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.
“Ludens” Bring Me the Horizon
“Born in The Slumber” Flora Cash
“Sing to Me” MISSIO
One of the songs is by Scottish band CHVRCHES. It will feature in the game, specifically during the end credits, as Hideo Kojima has confirmed.
Let’s make a toast to the damned Waiting for tomorrow When we’re played out by the band Drowning out our sorrows What will become of us now, at the end of time? We’ll be fine, you and I
Let’s draw a line in the sand Keep it straight and narrow We had it all in our hands We begged and then we borrowed What will become of us all at the end of love? When we’ve stopped looking up?
You can take my heart Hold it together as we fall apart Maybe together we can make a spark in the stars we embark And keep us together as the lights go dark
Let’s tell the truth, just for once Asking for an answer Now that it’s all said and done Nothing really matters What will become of us all if we dare to dream? At the end of the scene?
Let’s open up to the sky Ask it for closure ‘Least we can say that we tried But it’s never really over What will become of us all, at the end of the line? Will we live? Will we die?
The second song that has been released is Yellow Box by The Neighbourhood:
The third song released is “Ghost” by Au/Ra x Alan Walker.
You can buy a digital version of the full album from Amazon.
