Sony’s PlayStation 4 puts a big push behind its forthcoming Death Stranding game and to help build the hype, Sony Music solicited significant star power for the original soundtrack, including a new tune from Major Lazer and Khalid called “Trigger.”
It’s a first-time collaboration for the dance-pop trio and celebrated singer, but their talents work well over a ballad beat with muted dancehall influence. Major Lazer displays its production finesse on the synthesized hook, while Khalid mumbles melancholy lines about a relationship that’s found its end as the young phenom vocalizes “If our love is a drug/ You’re the one with the trigger (Oh)/ Shoot me down, shoot me down/ I don’t wanna remember you.”
“Trigger” is the fourth and final single from the PlayStation soundtrack, following previously-releases “Ghost” by Au/Ra and Alan Walker, “Yellow Box” by The Neighbourhood and “Death Stranding” by Chvrches. The soundtrack is out in full on November 7th on Sony Interactive Entertainment, while the game is set for a November 8th release. Check out the new song via its official lyric video as well as the full track list for the game below.
