British rockers BRING ME THE HORIZON have released a new song called "Ludens". The track is the latest offering from the upcoming "Death Stranding: Timefall (Original Music From The World Of Death Stranding)" soundtrack, featuring original music inspired by the upcoming PlayStation 4 (PS4) video game "Death Stranding". Last month it was announced that RCA Records has partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) to release the soundtrack tomorrow (November 7). "Ludens" premiered on the Annie Mac show earlier today and is available widely now.
BRING ME THE HORIZON singer Oli Sykes says: "'Death Stranding' is a game I've been waiting for long before collaborating with them was on the table. Kojima-san is one of the few people I would call a hero to me, so making a track for his first game since Konami was equal parts daunting, stressful and exciting… the whole thing felt surreal, and not right... To be honest, I didn't see where a BRING ME THE HORIZON song was going to fit into an art house AAA game, but I was stupid to try and pigeonhole Kojima's style!"
"Ludens" follows previously released tracks "Trigger" by Major Lazer x Khalid which Billboard stated the duo's moods "melt well over a ballad beat with muted dancehall influence," "Ghost" by Au/Ra x Alan Walker, "Yellow Box" by The Neighbourhood and "Death Stranding" by CHVRCHES. "Death Stranding" was met by rave reviews, with Rolling Stone declaring the track "stunning" and Uproxx calling it an "epic synth-pop jam."
