Square Enix is proud to announce that the soundtrack for Life Is Strange: Before the Storm will feature the works of the British indie folk band Daughter. The original music score for the episodic video game franchise is on the brink of creation, and Daughter has played an integral part in sculpting the overall composition and tone of the upcoming title.
