One of the latest high-profile recruits for the music world of Honor of Kings is renowned Chinese contemporary classical composer and conductor Tan Dun. Captivating the world with his impressive scores for the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), which have won him an Academy Award and a Grammy Award, the music master came up with five tailor-made tracks for Honor of Kings that are selected in the new album.
Honor of Kings Original Game Soundtrack, Vol. 3 also consists of the heartfelt music by composers Michał Cielecki and Dong Liu, who each wrote two tracks specifically for 2021 Chinese New Year, Qiandan Zhang and Mi Tian. Featured in the previous soundtrack album, the inspirational works by HeartStrings have been once again picked for the new album.
“During the creation of this album, we wanted to go deeper into the inner worlds of these heroic characters so that players would understand and like them better,” said Sam Yang, Audio Director of the TiMi Studio Group. “We invited Maestro Tan Dun, along with other respected composers, to further portray the features of characters in the game and continue the musical style of eastern epic fantasy. We hope that players will join us in the amazing adventures in the world of Honor of Kings.”
