Square Enix teamed up with an indie-folk band from Britain to make some new songs that will be featured in their upcoming Life is Strange: Before the Storm. "Music From Before The Storm" will be available on 01 September 2017.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm will feature music by the British indie-folk band Daughter. The original music score is titled "Music From Before The Storm" and it will be released by Glassnote Records/4AD on 01 September 2017.
The game will include all the tracks on "Music from Before the Storm" as well as some additional licensed tracks including two classic tracks from Daughters' back catalogue.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm was announced as a part of the Xbox E3 Briefing back in June. The game will take place before the original, and it will tell its story over the course of three episodes. The first episode will be made available on 31 August 2017, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Jon Brooke, Vice President for Brand Marketing, Square Enix London Studios said: "Life is Strange is a game that evokes a lot of emotion in people and, alongside great storytelling and characterisation, it’s music that plays a huge role in this"
Brooke added that: "It was really important for us to find a great collaboration for original music alongside our licensed tracks to capture the raw emotion of our game and Daughter fit that bill perfectly. Once we’d heard all the tracks for the game we really wanted the album to have a full release so our fans could enjoy them over and over. We’re really thankful and excited to be on the brink of a Life is Strange Daughter album release, we hope everyone enjoys the tracks as much as we expect."
Elena Tonra, Daughter Lead Singer said: "It was our first experience working on an original soundtrack, and are so honoured to have been given the opportunity to work with the team. 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."
The tracklist looks like this:
2. Burn It Down
5. The Right Way Around
8. All I Wanted
9. I Can’t Live Here Anymore
10. Dreams Of William
13. A Hole In The Earth
