Death Stranding puts gamers in the sturdy walking boots of Sam Porter Bridges (voiced and motion-captured by Norman Reedus), a man attempting to reconnect isolated civilisations. What he does with distant cities, this album of original music inspired by the game does with different genres and artists. Major Lazer and Khalid bridge soul and EDM on “Trigger”. Bring Me the Horizon cross cyberpunk, metal and pop on “Ludens”. And CHVRCHES shed nourishing, uplifting light on the title track. Some songs are moody and waft by on distant clouds, others are claustrophobic and agitated, but they all coexist harmoniously.
