The Quiet Man continues to sound like a compelling curiosity, as Square Enix has announced that oddball synth-pop singer Imogen Heap has been brought in to compose the console exclusive’s theme song. Speaking as part of the video embedded above, the musician explains that she watched videos of people who’d been fitted with cochlear implants as inspiration for the audio, and she tried to capture the moment of them hearing for the first time.

Narratively, the song will be performed by a character in the game called Lala, who’s the fictional singer that gets kidnapped and sends protagonist Dane on his adventure to rescue her. We’re big fans of Imogen Heap so we’re looking forward to hearing the full song; in the meantime you can hear her thoughts on the project in the clip at the top of the page.
