deadmau5 “My Heart Has Teeth” featuring Skylar Gray Available Now on ‘Resident Evil’ (Soundtrack From the Netflix Series)
For deadmau5, summer 2022 is for new music and shows. Tomorrow (July 15) deadmau5 and friends NERO, Kasablanca and Lamorn get the party started with the kickoff of the deadmau5 presents We Are Friends (WAF) tour at The Met in Philadelphia. Meanwhile earlier today deadmau5’ track “My Heart Has Teeth” featuring Skylar Grey made its premiere via Rolling Stone. The song appears on Resident Evil (Soundtrack From The Netflix Series) out now on Milan Records.
For his contribution to the action-adventure-horror soundtrack, deadmau5 drew upon his older JUNO and Jupiter synths forgoing trendy analog synths and sci-fi features, resulting in a grindy, downtempo vibe. “’Dystopian suburbia’ is the kind of vibe I had in mind when making this song. It’s been pretty cool because I like that weird, corporate overtone of this entity that owns the village if you would. I just imagine what that would be like while roughly composing the song with of course the vocal accoutrement of Ms. Skylar Grey. She’s an amazing talent to work with and she just nailed the lyrics.” Look for the song to be available as a single on deadmau5’ label mau5trap soon.
