Australia’s favourite multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana has teamed up with Playstation to re-record ‘Through The Valley’, the iconic track featured in the sensational video game The Last Of Us Part II.
The song, originally by Shawn James, went viral after featuring in the video game’s reveal trailer back in 2016. The new video featuring Tash sees them perform in place of the game’s lead character Ellie, a character who by the grace of their own killer instinct, does not fear. The song is reminiscent of Ellie’s experience in a cruel post-pandemic world.
Speaking of the experience, Tash said, “This is the first time I’ve done a collab like this. Usually it’s kinda just like writing sessions with other musos but this is for a game and it’s different as it’s not my usual style to venture into so I’m completely honoured to be asked to do something like this. The response from gamers has been incredible.”
Due to incredible demand, Tash has now released her version of ‘Through The Valley’ on Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify.
Patrick Lagana, Director of Marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia said, “’Through The Valley’ became a #1 hit in several markets when featured in the 2016 reveal trailer for The Last of Us Part II, so we were super excited with the idea of recreating this with a phenomenal Aussie talent like Tash Sultana that truly creates a special Australian moment to mark the launch of one of our biggest titles for PS4.”
