Florence & the Machine Reimagine 'Liar' Track for 'Dragon Age II' Video Game
Florence & the Machine are contributing an exclusive song to the upcoming videogame Dragon Age II. The track is a re-imagined version of "I'm Not Calling You a Liar" produced by composer Inon Zur and retitled "I'm Not Calling You a Liar (Dragon Age II: Varric's Theme)."
It's an interesting choice, as the game is not exactly set in modern times. It's a sword-and-sorcery role playing game set in the fictional land of Amaranthine with, like, dragons and stuff. The new track strips the vocals from the acoustic track and layers it over a full orchestral background created by Zur.
In a press release, Steve Schnur -- worldwide executive of music and marketing for the game's publisher, Electronic Arts -- had this to say:
"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."
