In anticipation of the upcoming release of Life is Strange: True Colors, Square Enix has announced the release of the game’s official soundtrack. In the announcement, it was revealed that the soundtrack is composed and performed by award-winning indie-pop group, Angus & Julia Stone.

The press release had the following to say regarding the music and how it plays a large role in the experience of Life is Strange True Colors:
“The emotional and thrilling story of the latest instalment in the award-winning Life is Strange franchise, Life is Strange: True Colors inspired the Australian artists to make an album dedicated to the complexity of love between siblings, families and communities – themes that players will also experience in-game.
Players take on the role of Alex Chen, a young woman navigating early adulthood in Haven Springs, a mountain town where she connects with her long-lost brother and becomes a part of a tight-knit community – her brother having moved there in search for their long-lost father. Amidst this backdrop, Alex struggles to accept a ‘curse” she’s dealt with all her life: having the psychic power of Empathy, a supernatural ability that allows her to experience, absorb and influence the strong emotions of others – which she sees as blazing, coloured auras.
When her brother dies in a suspicious accident, Alex must at last embrace her volatile power to find the truth and uncover the secrets that keep the truth at bay. Alex Chen’s journey, power and future are all fully under the player’s control.
This super-natural mystery is brought to life using full performance capture and VO by rising talent Erika Mori as Alex Chen, incredible music from Angus & Julia Stone’s soundtrack, as well as original tracks from mxmtoon and Novo Amor and licensed tracks from Gabrielle Aplin, Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers and more.”
Players can pre-order Life is Strange: True Colors now, with its release set for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Google Stadia on Sept. 10, 2021, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
