Karen O Talks Writing New Song for Upcoming Tomb Raider Game

Karen O, the lead singer of indie rock band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, has chatted about the new song she has recorded for the upcoming Xbox-exclusive game Rise of the Tomb Raider.

The singer described the song, “I Will Rise”, as her version of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”. She observed to Rolling Stone: “I think they wanted to bring on the melodrama. They wanted something emotional with a dramatic build. It’s kind of the theme of Lara’s creation myth, the moment that defines her becoming an icon.”

The haunting song can be heard in a new trailer for the game that you can watch below.

The Rise of the Tomb Raider is the follow-up to 2013’s Tomb Raider and will be released solely for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10.
