BioWare has teamed up with Grammy nominated artist Florence + The Machine to include a re-imaging of one of their songs exclusively in Dragon Age II. "I'm Not Calling You a Liar" is being recreated as a new version that you'll only be able to hear in-game.
The track will be produced by award-winning composer Inon Zur and Steve Schnur, and mixed by Jack Joseph Puig, who is known for his work with U2, The Rolling Stones, No Doubt and Green Day. It will feature in-game as “I’m Not Calling You A Liar (Dragon Age II: Varric’s Theme)”.
“With the band’s full blessings and enthusiasm, we isolated Florence’s original vocals from one of their most unique songs and completely ‘Dragon-Age d’ it,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA as well as the track’s co-producer. “What was originally a powerfully stark, acoustic-based song has been reborn with all-new instrumentation and full orchestration. The results are an epic anthem for the next stage of the Dragon Age legend.”
You'll be able to download part 1 of the Dragon Age II soundtrack from digital music providers on March 8th, 2011 for £2.00. You can hear two of the tracks from Inon Zur's original score here.
Dragon Age II is out on March 8th in North America and March 11th in Europe.
