Official Launch Trailer and its incredible soundtrack

On July 3, 2012 by

The Secret World official launch trailer is the newest in a long line of mmo trailers, but maybe one of the most profound…

Featuring an apocalyptic vision with some glimmer of hope and an incredible soundtrack voiced by the late Dinah Washington on the music of Max Richter.

Soundtrack: Dinah Washington & Max Richter-This bitter earth – On the nature of daylight

This bitter earth
Well, what fruit it bears
What good is love
mmmm that no one shares
And if my life is like the dust
oooh that hides the glow of a rose
What good am I
Heaven only knows

Lord, this bitter earth
Yes, can be so cold
Today youre young

Too soon, youre old
But while a voice within me cries
Im sure someone may answer my call
And this bitter earth
Ooooo may not
Oh be so bitter after all

Dinah Washington was an american blues, jazz and gospel singer from Alabama. She was called the Queen of Blues and even has the Dinah Washington Park in chicago named after her. Max Richter is a german composer who does film and television soundtracks, discs and live shows with the most famous orchestras.

If you feel like you’ve already heard it somewhere, this song featuring the 2 artists was actually put together for Martin Scorese’s Shutter Island.

I don’t know who did the mix, but if anyone does I would be really interested ’cause I think he/she deserves credit too!
