Day and date with Mirror’s Edge’s PS3 and Xbox 360 launch this November 11th, EA DICE will also release a downloadable remix album consisting of the game’s theme song “Still Alive,” performed by Swedish rock/pop star Lisa Miskovsky, and five remixes from the likes of Benny Benassi, Paul van Dyk, Junkie XL, Teddybears, and Armand Van Helden. If you’d rather have the game’s groovy theme song on a disc, pre-order at Best Buy and you’ll get a bonus soundtrack CD with the title track and another exclusive remix by Benny Benassi. I am so going to be all over this. The music in all of the trailers so far has been sublime. I’ve actually been trying to find out who made the theme song since the game’s debut trailer blew me away back in May.

“A groundbreaking videogame demands an equally provocative theme song,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA. “We’ve taken an unprecedented approach to this track, bringing together several of the world’s top remixers to create an album that will not only cross genres and borders, but also redefine how great new music can be delivered to the world.”

“When given the opportunity to work with Lisa, Rami and Arnthor, who are all avid gamers, we knew we had something very special on our hands,” added Magnus Walterstad, Audio Director at DICE. “With ‘Still Alive,’ we created a Mirror’s Edge theme song that is able to stand on its own two feet as well as accurately representing the emotional experience of playing the game.”

“This is a terrific song from a tremendous new artist,” said Terry McBride, CEO of EA label partners Nettwerk Music Group. “And every one of these remixers responded not only to the power of the track itself, but also to what this project will mean to the continued convergence of music and gaming. Our entire worldwide marketing team is committed to making this a landmark digital release.”
