Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O is sharing ‘I Will Rise’, a standalone track taken from Rise of the Tomb Raider’s soundtrack.
Yesterday a trailer previewed the song, and it’s now streaming in full. The track stands several miles apart from the sleepy glow of last year’s debut solo album ‘Crush Songs’.
On making music for a game soundtrack, Karen O told Rolling Stone. “They wanted drama and high-stakes and melodrama. That was very appealing to me because I love making music connected to a storyline. It was all stuff I loved like having the theme song to [Lara Croft] becoming an icon and the creation myth to the moment she becomes Lara.”
