Produced in collaboration with Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and Academy Award-nominated musician Karen O, and written and recorded explicitly for Rise of the Tomb Raider, “I Shall Rise” explores Lara Croft’s relentless journey as she tests the limits of the human spirit.
Inspired by Lara Croft’s adventure through a hostile world as she searches for the secret of immortality, “I Shall Rise” captures the gravity and cinematic presentation of Rise of the Tomb Raider, and marks Karen O’s first original song for a video game.
“The emotional and very human story, of a young woman’s perseverance and journey in accepting her destiny as the Tomb Raider is inspiring on many levels, and I drew on those inspirations for this song,” said Karen O. “She’s such an iconic hero, the opportunity to compose this song and be part of Lara’s history is exciting.”
“Karen truly captures Lara’s indomitable spirit and determination,” said Crystal Dynamics Creative Director Noah Hughes. “The mood and atmosphere the song evokes is simply fantastic and compliments the game’s aspirational sense of adventure really well.”
“I Shall Rise” is available for digital download today wherever music is sold.
