Grammy-nominated singer-song-writer K.Flay has debuted a new song to promote the upcoming third entry to the film franchise Tomb Raider (2018), starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. The artist elaborates via The Hollywood Reporter:
"I wrote "Run for Your Life" in a hotel room in Johnson City, Tennessee, a few hours before my show that night. I think the frantic energy of touring found its way into the track.
This track was a new challenge for me — writing a song from a perspective outside my own, trying to capture the spirit and energy of a film I hadn’t seen in full yet. (PS I’ve of course seen it now and it’s awesome)," - K.Flay
The song was soon confirmed to appear in the film by director Roar Uthaug, although the likelihood is that it will accompany the end credits. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) both saw the release of dedicated various artists compilation soundtracks but there is no indication of the same for Tomb Raider (2018).
"Run for You Life" is one of three foreseeable additions to the Tomb Raider Franchise Commercial Discography in 2018. The track can be purchased digitally or streamed on several platforms via this handy link from February 16th. Listen to the track on Vevo below now!
