Musical journey (93)

As you know I'm a gaymer but unfortunately I'm in a bit of a lull right now after completing "Ni No Ku Ni II: Revenant Kingdom". I bought the season pass for that game so am now waiting for the first (of two) DLC to be released. In the meantime, I'm playing an old game I borrowed from another gaymer friend (he's a work colleague too - what are the chances!) - "Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition".

The game that I'm REALLY looking forward to though after having played the first episode is "The Last of Us: Part II". To give you a feel of how popular this game is, it's been put on pre-order a few months ago even though the actual release date is not yet known (likely next year)! It's popular because the plot is so gripping and to be honest better written than most movies out there right now.

This month I'm covering a song featured in the first teaser trailer for this much-anticipated game called "Through the Valley". The original version really isn't too flash but the way it was portrayed in the trailer (which I've watched countless times) captivated me and for many weeks, the song was on repeat in my playlist. In my cover I've added some extra verses from the original song to make it longer while still retaining the arrangement. I love this song very much and hope you will too.
