Engage battle mode with a new official theme song for PUBG Mobile by Alan Walker and A$AP Rocky. ‘Live Fast’ is a somber, melodramatic hymn that is beautifully haunting in every way. A fitting song for the massively multiplayer battle royal game that ricochets loudly amidst Rocky’s recent incarceration in Sweden.
Gaming and EDM music go hand in hand, like soldiers on a battlefield. Following his first 2013 release with Skrillex, ‘Wild For The Night,’ ‘Live Fast’ is Rocky’s second single into his EDM-rap crossover. Like Marshmello has Fortnite, Alan Walker has PUBG. We’ve seen a copious amount of EDM artists intertwining into video games lately, and it’s great. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) ranks at one of the top 10 best-selling video games with over 30 million in sales for PC. ‘Live Fast’ is the official anthem for PUBG Mobile, available on both iOS and Android. Walker has made songs for the video game community before, with songs released for Riot Game’s League of Legends as well as his first single for PUBG, ‘On My Way.’
Hauntingly, Rocky’s vocals for ‘Live Fast’ were recorded prior to his detainment in Sweden. While the song is about marching into an epic last-man-standing battle in PUBG, the lyrics have a quivering weight to it that rings even louder amidst Rocky’s recent troubles. Walker’s production for this song makes it an epic hymn, perfect for engaging in combat inside PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The music video features actors dressed as original characters from PUBG with lyrics displayed in realtime. Alan Walker appears as a PUBG character himself, his iconic mask matching the theme seamlessly. The striking lyrics, “2013 I’m going wild for the night, In 2019, I’m getting out ‘fore I die” are the perfect phrasing for this poignant tune.
