New original song composed for game's soundtrack.
A wise man once said every good hero should have their theme music. This goes for video game heroines too, and on the heels of Lara Croft having Karen O belt out a joyful noise in her honor, 'Mirror's Edge's Faith will be flitting around the dystopian rooftops of the city of Glass to the sound of synth-pop trio CHVRCHES.
The group has written an original song, 'Warning Call' for the game's soundtrack. According to EA's press release, the track will be features at the game's start, at the end, and in a secret location in-game (likely a la The National's 'Exile/Vilify' on the radio in 'Portal 2'). Sayeth CHVRCHES' Iain Cook: "We were honored to be asked to contribute to the soundtrack for 'Mirror's Edge Catalyst'. The sound of CHVRCHES' music resonates with the minimalist sci-fi dystopia of the 'Mirror's Edge' world, and we feel that the song complements the drama, emotion and empowering themes of Faith's story."
He's not wrong. It's not actually that far removed from the first game's cool licensed track, 'Still Alive' by Lisa Miskovsky (not to be confused with the GlaDOS song), but it's definitely a bit more 2016 in its production. Check out the track below, you'll be hearing a lot more of it on June 7th, when 'Catalyst' releases.
