Bring Me The Horizon have shared their new track ‘Ludens’.
The song, which follows on from their 2019 album ‘amo’, gets taken from the soundtrack for forthcoming Playstation 4 game Death Stranding and is both an intimately glitchy and explosive offering. The soundtrack features original material from a series of artists, including The Neighbourhood and Chvrches, who shared their contribution a few months ago.
Speaking of the band’s contribution to the game soundtrack, the band’s Oli Sykes’ has said: “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 & 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!”
