“GHOST” IS THE LATEST OFFERING OF ORIGINAL MUSIC OFF THE DEATH STRANDING: TIMEFALL SOUNDTRACK WHICH IS DUE OUT NOVEMBER 7TH
Au/Ra x Alan Walker release new track “Ghost” today. Watch the lyric video HERE. “Ghost” is the latest offering from the upcoming DEATH STRANDING: Timefall (Original Music from the World of DEATH STRANDING) soundtrack, featuring original music inspired by the upcoming PlayStation ® 4 (PS4™) video game, DEATH STRANDING. Earlier this month it was announced that RCA Records has partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment (“SIE”) to release the soundtrack on November 7th, pre order is available NOW.
Au/Ra says, “I wrote ‘Ghost’ while I was first getting used to not being home a lot. At that time I was feeling very disconnected from friends and family, and I needed to write something about that feeling of isolation. It ties in with the concept of Death Stranding – the isolation and disconnection in that world and its people, that the protagonist, Sam Porter, is trying to connect again.
I had worked on a track with Alan Walker called ‘Darkside’ and we had so much fun doing it, and had been wanting to work together again and I thought this song was a great opportunity to do that. He produced the track and added a bit of his own spin to it.”
Alan Walker says, “It’s a true honor to play a small role in this release with so many other amazing artists. Au/Ra has featured on one of my singles before, so it’s great to return the favor on ‘Ghost’. And I’m very excited to see what the game itself is like, Hideo Kojima is really a true legend!”
“Ghost” follows previously released tracks “Yellow Box” by The Neighbourhood and “Death Stranding” by CHVRCHES. “Death Stranding” was met by rave reviews with Rolling Stone declaring the track “…stunning…” and UPROXX stating it a “…Epic Synth-Pop Jam.” “Ghost” joins The Neighbourhood’s “Yellow Box” and CHVRCHES “Death Stranding” as instant grat tracks for fans who pre-order the soundtrack.

With her enchanting vocals, the Ibiza-born, Antigua-raised songwriter explores the challenges of being a teenager in 2019, writing music that touches on the issues today’s younger generation face on a daily basis. In most of Au/Ra’s deeply visual, evocative lyrics is a sense of escapism, influenced by her fandom of anime and fantasy. Growing up devouring Studio Ghibli films, she’s always loved to disappear into the soft-edged, uncanny world of Miyazaki animations, and uses similar designs to flesh out the visual world of her music. With her lovingly made outsider-pop, Au/Ra is providing a similar kind of space in her song writing: one where misfits feel at home and where the listener gets to peer for a minute through the lens of an artist who has simultaneously grown up outside the system but who speaks with the zeitgeist of her generation. The success of her summer hit ‘Panic Room’ (which went on to be remixed by underground duo Camelphat & now sits on over 80 million streams) touches on the depth of anxiety attacks. It remained solidly in the Top 40 for 9 weeks. This year, with the release of three songs already – Assassin, Medicine, and Dance in the Dark – Au/Ra’s YouTube subscriptions have grown from 100,000 in January to 250,000 in September. In addition, her previous single ‘Concrete Jungle’ has had over 32 million streams, and received critical acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Wonderland, NME, PopJustice and more.
