Peter Gabriel Signs Videogame Music Deal with Ubisoft


Ubisoft has teamed up with Peter Gabriel to add a distinctive sound to its Myst franchise of games. Gabriel will provide the song, "Burn You Up, Burn You Down" for the November release of Uru: Ages Beyond Myst and the world-renowned artist will also provide an original composition for the next game in the series. Myst is one of the most widely recognized game brands in history, with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide.

"When Myst came out I thought it succeeded well in creating a feeling of other worlds in which mystery and imagination were the compelling elements instead of the usual action packed 'shoot 'em ups'," said Peter Gabriel, artist. "I think there is some similarity with the way I try and create worlds of sound. I, and my collaborators, are very much looking forward to working with the Myst team."

Peter Gabriel has earned a worldwide reputation for his innovative work as a musician, writer and video maker. He launched his solo career in 1975 and has released 12 solo albums. In 1986 he won his first Grammy with his seventh album, 'So'. His video 'Sledgehammer' won the most music video awards ever.

"There are only a handful of artists whose work takes me to deeper places. Peter Gabriel is one. His music is unique in its ability to paint a picture in my mind and give it feeling, give it life. At Cyan Worlds we certainly approach bringing places to life in a different way than Peter does, but I believe our goal is the same - build a bridge to someplace new. So, it's truly a unique pleasure to have a chance to work with Peter Gabriel's team, taking new worlds to a deeper level," said Rand Miller, CEO of Cyan Worlds.

"This deal signifies a chance for two creative talents - Peter Gabriel and Rand Miller from Cyan Worlds, the makers of Myst and Riven, to work together. These artists have each broken new ground in their respective fields, and I'm sure that fans of both can't wait to see and hear the results of their collaboration," said Yves Guillemot, president and CEO of Ubisoft.

The first game to ship featuring Peter Gabriel's music will be Uru: Ages Beyond MYST. Uru is the most immersive and ambitious adventure experience in the Myst world to date. In Uru, you'll spend hours freely discovering vast, visually arresting 3D worlds and solving mentally stimulating puzzles.

Players will also have the option of subscribing to Uru Live, to continue the adventure online. By entering Uru Live, players will have the unique opportunity to explore new Ages with other Myst fans around the world.
