Korn has written and recorded an original song inspired by Ubisoft’s upcoming Haze videogame that will be featured in the game.
The song, called “Haze,” will go to radio and be available as a digital download in November, with an accompanying video shipping to MTV and other outlets.
Lead singer Jonathan Davis is a big gamers and has often professed his love for Ubisoft games like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.
“This partnership with Korn is original in the video game industry in that the song will be released and promoted as a full-fledged single, and not just as a download with the video game,” adds Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. “It is a testament to the synergy possibilities between music and videogames, which often share the same audience.”
It’s true. I play videogames AND love music…therefore I will surely like this, right?
