No, the partially naked guy in the background of that photo has absolutely nothing to do with the newly announced Mirror's Edge Remix ALBUM. Well, except that he looks like the type that might buy it and dance to it alone in his tiny apartment. Naked.

Slated to release this November 11th, the album will be released digitally and features multiple remixes of the game's title track, "Still Alive", from popular dance artists such as Benny Benassi, Junkie XL and Paul Van Dyk. The original version as performed by Lisa Miskovsky is also included in the album.

If you preorder the game at any Best Buy location, you will also receive a free music disc with the original version of "Still Alive" on it and an exclusive Benny Benassi remix. Those 2 free songs may be enough for you, but if you're a beats hound and can't get enough of the sweet remixin', you'll want to keep an eye out for the Remix ALBUM.

 

DICE ANNOUNCES MIRROR'S EDGE REMIX ALBUM HITTING AIRWAVES THIS NOVEMBER



Swedish Pop Star Lisa Miskovsky's "Still Alive" Remixed By Top DJs
Including Benny Benassi, Paul van Dyk and Junkie XL



Redwood City, CA. - Oct 7, 2008 - DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio
(NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced that a remix album for their highly
anticipated title Mirror's Edge(tm) will be digitally released worldwide
on November 11th in conjunction with the launch of the game. The album
features the title track "Still Alive" performed by Swedish rock/pop
star Lisa Miskovsky and remixes by some of today's hottest artists
including Benny Benassi, Paul van Dyk, Junkie XL, Teddybears, and Armand
Van Helden.



"A groundbreaking videogame demands an equally provocative theme song,"
said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA.
"We've taken an unprecedented approach to this track, bringing together
several of the world's top remixers to create an album that will not
only cross genres and borders, but also redefine how great new music can
be delivered to the world."



Recorded exclusively for Mirror's Edge, "Still Alive" was written and
produced by Rami Yacoub and Arnthor Birgisson who are best known for
their chart-topping work with artists Pink, Britney Spears and Kelis.
The song was performed by Lisa Miskovsky who earned international
acclaim for her #1 self-titled debut album and #1 Platinum follow-up
Fallwater. She also won Sweden's top music awards including Best New
Artist, Best Female Artist and Artist of the Year.



"When given the opportunity to work with Lisa, Rami and Arnthor, who are
all avid gamers, we knew we had something very special on our hands,"
added Magnus Walterstad, Audio Director at DICE. "With 'Still Alive,' we
created a Mirror's Edge theme song that is able to stand on it's own two
feet as well as accurately representing the emotional experience of
playing the game."



The complete track listing for the Mirror's Edge Remix ALBUM is as
follows:

"This is a terrific song from a tremendous new artist," said Terry
McBride, CEO of EA label partners Nettwerk Music Group. "And every one
of these remixers responded not only to the power of the track itself,
but also to what this project will mean to the continued convergence of
music and gaming. Our entire worldwide marketing team is committed to
making this a landmark digital release."



When customers pre-order Mirror's Edge at Best Buy in the U.S., they can
pick up a music CD containing the theme song to Mirror's Edge and an
exclusive remix by Benny Benassi.
