Low Roar’s Music from Death Stranding’s Trailers Headed to Vinyl

Death Stranding

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard of gaming icon Hideo Kojima’s current work in progress, Death Stranding. Kojima gave us our first tease of the upcoming game at E3 2016, then got our blood pumping again at this year’s Video Game Awards. The latest trailer was shown again at PlayStation Experience (PSX) 2016, this time with a song titled, “Easy Way Out” by the Icelandic band, Low Roar.

As you can see, Low Roar’s song adds a new tone to the already incredible trailer. During a Death Stranding panel at PSX, Kojima stated:

“Two years ago, when I went to Iceland it was a song that just happened to be playing at the record store. I loved it. In the E3 trailer, we used a song from Low Roar and this time, we made this version. And we’re just announcing [sic] we’re making the analog version of the soundtrack from Mondo records. It will be a limited edition.”

Low Roar also provided the track, “I’ll Be Waiting” for the reveal trailer earlier in the year. In a brilliant marketing move by Kojima Productions, Mondo, and PlayStation, both of Low Roar’s featured songs will be available on vinyl records.

The vinyls are available for preorder for $15 from Mondo but won’t ship out until February 2017. Mondo warns customers that if they are ordering anything else from their site to make the orders separate to make sure your other items arrive before the holidays. To go along with the incredible music featured on the album, the album cover features amazing artwork by artist Randy Ortiz.

The vinyl itself is described as:

A limited edition 12″ Single of Low Roar’s song “I’ll Keep Coming”, and “Easy Way Out” as featured in the trailers for the forthcoming Hideo Kojima game Death Stranding. Pressed on 180 Gram Clear with Heavy Black Splatter Vinyl.

We are still far away from Death Stranding’s release, but that doesn’t mean we, as loyal Kojima fans, can’t start loading up on memorabilia, right? Even if you’re still unsure about the game, you’ve got to admit that the featured music is quite pleasing to the ears and will sound amazing on vinyl. Are you excited for Kojima’s next epic game?
