The 'Death Stranding' trailer music is headed to vinyl

Hideo Kojima has the video game industry in a frenzy. The Metal Gear creator released a new teaser for his latest project, Death Stranding, to rapturous applause on Friday night at The Game Awards. It's deliciously weird, featuring one-time Silent Hills collaborator Guillermo del Toro, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and a vanishing baby. The trailer, like its spooky predecessor, features the music of Low Roar, which specialist record producer Mondo is now planning to release on vinyl. You'll get two tracks, I'll Keep Coming and Easy Way Out, on the 12-inch "clear with heavy black splatter" single.

The record will set you back $15 and is scheduled to ship in February 2017. For fans of Kojima and his upcoming game (which, let's be honest, won't be coming out any time soon), this is a neat collector's item. Maybe the tracks can keep you company while you mull over some fan theories -- did you notice the baby teleports when you play the two trailers side by side? Strange, very strange. Maybe the child is special, or merely susceptible to the strange capsule device held by del Toro. My personal theory is that Norman Reedus' tears have magical properties. What? Don't look at me like that. Weirder things have happened in the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
