DALLAS – 4th November 2021 – Old World’s “I Lift My Eyes” – an original song created for the game by legendary composer Christopher Tin and performed by Lebanese singer Abeer Nehme – now has a music video, performed by Nehme and the Los Angeles’ Angel City Chorale and directed by Tayo Amos. The music video can be seen at Nehme's YouTube.
Old World’s soundtrack has a particular focus on the musical traditions of Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean cultures, matching the game’s geographic focus. Christopher Tin's previous work includes the song "Baba Yetu" for Sid Meier's Civilization IV, the first piece of music written for a video game to win a Grammy Award.
"It was very important to us to have an accurate and fair representation of Middle-Eastern cultures in Old World’s soundtrack, so it’s extremely exciting to have “I Lift My Eyes” turned into a proper music video,” said Leyla Johnson, CEO of Mohawk Games. "Chris and Abeer are fantastic, talented musicians, and it’s great to see a piece of our video game soundtrack make the jump to live action."
Christopher Tin’s full Old World soundtrack, featuring 12 tracks highlighting different cultures and aspects of the game, is available here.
Old World can be wishlisted on Steam and GOG, or purchased on the Epic Games Store. A Steam/GOG release announcement trailer is available at YouTube.
