I have a long standing theory that publishers hold their odd news back until Friday and this just confirms it. Florence + The Machine are to feature in the Dragon Age II soundtrack.
Electronic Arts have announced that a new version of the track ‘I’m Not Calling You A Liar’ has been ‘Dragon Age-d’. EA’s worldwide executive of music and marketing and co-producer of the track, Steve Schnur said:
With the band’s full blessings and enthusiasm, we isolated Florence’s original vocals from one of their most unique songs and completely ‘Dragon-Age d’ it.
What was originally a powerfully stark, acoustic-based song has been reborn with all-new instrumentation and full orchestration. The results are an epic anthem for the next stage of the Dragon Age legend.
In other words, they took the acapella of the track and remixed it. That sounds a bit dull though, ‘Dragon Age-ing’ an ‘isolated vocal’ sounds dead posh.
Part one of the Dragon Age II soundtrack wil be available online on March 8th and will cost £2.00.
