REFUSED Streams New Song "Never Fade Away" From Cyberpunk 2077
Refused has a lot of new music coming out this year. On one hand, they've got their new record War Music coming out on October 8. On the other, they've got a few songs coming out under the name Samurai not on the new album, but for the coming game Cyberpunk 2077. You can hear the new song "Never Fade Away" from the latter right now.
Here's what the band had to say about "Never Fade Away".
“When CD PROJEKT RED approached us about writing music for ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘, we jumped at the chance. Partly because of the challenge: to write music for a fictional band that was similar to Refused, but quite different at the same time, having the music and lyrics be shaped and determined by the feel, tone and plot of an outside narrative.
The timing was perfect, we had just finished ‘War Music‘ and were still in the zone songwriting-wise. Most importantly though, it seemed to us sort of like a 2019 version of when Cannibal Corpse was in ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective‘, in other words: very cool.
Props to P.T. Adamczyk, in-house composer at CDPR, for having the vision, writing it with us, producing and seeing the whole thing through. And no, we had no idea that dude from Steve Martin‘s ‘Parenthood‘ was gonna be the lead singer.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is out April 16, 2020.
