Oliver Heldens and Spinnin’ Records team up with Activision to celebrate the exciting new season of Call Of Duty: Warzone.
It was announced today, June 14, that the anthem for Call of Duty®: Warzone Season 04, “Sound Of Vondel,” would be released through Spinnin’ Records. Following its creation by Oliver Heldens, today also marks an iconic pairing between the famed DJ/producer & Spinnin’ Records with Activision, one of the biggest gaming publishers in the world. As a longtime fan and player of Call of Duty himself, Heldens drew inspiration from his techno alias HI-LO on “Sound Of Vondel,” which takes listeners (and gamers) on a darkly propulsive and atmospheric journey. The song perfectly evokes the epic next-level gameplay that fans worldwide have come to expect from Call of Duty. The new dance record is available today on all major streaming platforms as well as in-game in the new Call of Duty: Warzone Season 04, which also launches today.
“I’ve been playing Call of Duty for as long as I can remember”, says Heldens. “I even named a bunch of my first officially released tracks in 2013 based upon inspiration from the iconic Modern Warfare 2 game. To collaborate with the Activision team and to create some truly authentic music as the official anthem for the new Vondel map in Warzone is a massive honor to me!”
“Collaborating with Oliver Heldens has been an extremely exciting project for us”, commented Michelle Bresaw, VP and Head of Live Services at Activision. “With the launch of Vondel, we wanted to encapsulate the Baroque feel of our new medium-sized Warzone map through a well-known European export, EDM. The marrying of a global DJ and the Call of Duty franchise acts as a celebration of what’s possible when the games and music industries collide.”
Call of Duty: Warzone Season 04 launches today across all available platforms.
