Metal Gear Singer’s Official (unofficial) Movie Theme Song inspired by Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Metal Gear singer/actor Donna Burke takes fan content to Hollywood
When millions of fans across the globe got hyped about talk of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie so did Metal Gear singer/actor Donna Burke who is releasing a spoof trailer and full length single for Metal Gear Solid the movie. The Official Unofficial version.
Inspired by Jordan Vogt-Roberts March 9th tweet ‘THIS-MUSING-IS-NOT-NEWS-PSA’, of a movie poster of Oscar Isaac as the lead character Snake, Burke produced Hanging by a Thread, recorded with a full live orchestra, as a nod to fans of epic game music and Hollywood theme songs.
“I’d really love to sing and be in the Metal Gear Solid movie” says Burke. “So instead of waiting to be asked, I just made the song anyway!”
The arranger/conductor for “Metal Gear in Concert”, Nicholas Buc, is the composer of Hanging by a Thread with lyrics by Burke. The song is a “rich inspiration of Metal Gear music with a dash of epic Bond themes that will make fans go nuts,” says Buc.
Twenty-year-old New Yorker, Gabriel Morel, got to direct the movie trailer after a chance meeting with Burke at her hotel after the concert in late March. Singer/Actress Stefanie Joosten also got involved in the project when she was in Tokyo for Metal Gear in Concert. “We want to give all the fans, waiting for the movie to come out, a truly epic song to get chills over,” says Burke.
Metalgearsolidthemovie.com, a website devoted to the project, contains backing tracks and the original vocals to encourage fans to create their own mixes for the song. There is also piano-vocal sheet music and a jazz score for free download.
“Fans inspire me all the time with the content they create” says Burke. “The joy we’ve had making this spoof theme song is as real as if it was the actual job”.
Hanging by a Thread is available on Spotify and iTunes.
