Since Dontnod Entertainment developed the first installment of the Life is Strange saga, music has been one of the key elements of the series. It will be no different in Life is Strange: True Colors, the long-awaited new chapter, this time developed by Deck Nine Games, the same studio that designed Before the Storm. In a press release, the publisher Square Enix has announced that the original soundtrack can now be listen on Spotify. The album, which includes 12 songs headed by Love Song, is composed and performed by the grupo indie Angus & Julia Stone. There will also be original tracks from mxmtoon and Novo Amor, as well as songs on loan from Gabrielle Aplin, Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers and many more.
The story of Life is Strange: True Colors inspired Australian musicians to compose an album that touches on complex themes such as the brotherly, family and communal love. All these songs will accompany the players throughout the adventure and will help build the atmosphere and spice up certain aspects of the story.

The power of empathy
On this occasion, the protagonist is called Alex Chen, a young woman who is about to reach adulthood. As in other video games in the series, the main stage will be a small town, known as Haven Springs. It is a place located in the mountains, a beautiful place with impressive views. There he is reunited with his lost brother, who is now part of a close-knit community. The boy has moved there to look for his father, who disappeared long ago.
Another of the usual ingredients of the saga are the special powers. Alex uses his empathic skills to feel, absorb, and manipulate feelings more intense than the others, which are represented on the screen by a color system. Unfortunately, his brother has passed away under strange circumstances, so he will have to do everything possible to find out what really happened.
Life is Strange: True Colors to be released next September, 10th en PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia y Nintendo Switch.
