Daughter has unveiled a partnership with Square Enix, publisher of award-winning and best-selling video game franchises such as Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider, to create an original musical score for their highly anticipated new game Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
The entire soundtrack entitled Music from Before the Storm will be released digitally on 1st September 2017.
“We are so proud to have written the soundtrack for Life is Strange: Before the Storm. It was our first experience working on an original soundtrack, and we are so honoured to have been given the opportunity to work with the team,” remarks Daughter singer Elena Tonra. “We loved the story on first read as it centres around realistic female lead characters who are emotional, intelligent, sensitive and badass in equal measure. I think the characters themselves have really inspired the soundscapes we have created. It was a pleasure to be involved.”
“We wanted to have fun with this project so we made something we felt could be a soundtrack for the characters in the game themselves. It was also important for us to make sure this collection of songs and pieces of music stood on their own so we really went that extra mile. We hope players and non players alike will equally enjoy it,” notes founding member Igor Haefeli.
New track ‘Burn It Down’ was premiered today on BBC 6Music by Lauren Laverne.
