Death Stranding is Getting An Original Album with Music from CHVRCHES, DJ Lazer, and More
Separate from the game's official soundtrack, Death Stranding: Timefall will feature original music "inspired" by the upcoming game.
With only a few months to go until its release, it’s no surprise that anticipation is only getting higher for Hideo Kojima’s long-awaited Death Stranding. Though we still don’t have a clear idea of what exactly Death Stranding exactly is, we do have an idea that it apparently will be the source of inspiration for a number of new music tracks from a collection of well-known artists.
A new Death Stranding soundtrack album has been revealed called Death Stranding: Timefall, which was detailed over on the official PlayStation website in an FAQ section (and as found by user Vestan on ResetEra). According to the information from PlayStation, Timefall will be “a collection of new music from artists, producers, and musicians who have been inspired by the world of Death Stranding,” with the album being separate from the original soundtrack/score of the game, and will not feature music contained in the game itself.
According to Sony, Death Stranding: Timefall will release on November 8, 2019 to coincide with the game’s launch, and is included with the special editions of the game. A physical and digital release of the album will also be made available at some point down the line, including making the album available to stream on services such as (presumably) Spotify.
Notably, more details on the album from the Japanese pop culture site Entertainment Week have suggested that the album will feature music created by artists such as CHVRCHES, Khalid, DJ Lazer, and more. While Sony has not officially confirmed just yet which artists will be contributing to Timefall, artists like CHVRCHES crafting music for the album makes sense, as the group themselves visited Kojima Productions in Japan earlier this year, and Kojima himself has expressed his love for their music before.
Death Stranding will release exclusively for PS4 on November 8, 2019, and you can pre-order the game now over on Amazon.
