American pop rock band Imagine Dragons has revealed a new single, Children of the Sky (a Starfield song). The song takes inspiration from Bethesda’s sci-fi roleplaying title, Starfield, which releases on September 6th, 2023. The band has yet to release the official music video. However, a lyrics video is available on YouTube.
“Bethesda created iconic games we’ve been playing for most of our lives, and we’re honoured to have collaborated on this song for Starfield. The song, like the game, asks some of the most difficult questions we face as humans trying to find our place in the universe,” says Imagine Dragons frontman and avid gamer Dan Reynolds.
Inor Zur, who composed the score for the upcoming game, aided the band in incorporating elements from Starfield’s main theme into the track.
“I’m so excited and honoured to reveal that I have collaborated with the legendary group Imagine Dragons to create Children of the Sky (a Starfield song),” says Zur. “The band has created an amazing, emotional, and memorable song, and I joined them in crafting the Starfield motif into the song as well as iconic elements from the Main Theme and the Starfield orchestral treatment. The outcome is a massive celebration for Starfield and I hope that the group’s fans, as well as gamers from all over the world, will find it as exhilarating and magnificent as we all feel.”
Starfield Launches Soon
The game description states, “In this next-generation roleplaying game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.”
Starfield will be available for Xbox Series X|S and PC on September 6th. However, PlayStation gamers are out of luck as there are no plans to release the game for PS4 or PS5. Starfield was developed by Bethesda, the developer behind Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. In the game, players can command and modify their spaceship, explore various planets and build outposts.
The first early reviews of the game are out now, with a mostly positive consensus.
