Listen to Zedd’s new League of Legends theme song
In a clashing of two worlds, Zedd has been enlisted by Riot Games to create a song for League of Legends. Considering the immense global popularity of the online multiplayer game — roughly 30 million people reportedly play every day — it’s a big honor for Zedd.
The German producer’s new composition “Ignite” serves as the new theme for League of Legends’ upcoming world championship in Los Angeles, following a 2014 contribution from Imagine Dragons. To perhaps appeal to the game’s expansive demographic, Zedd has delivered a more accessible pop-EDM tune with lyrics that seek to provide reliability with gamers. The result is a bit of a watered down creation that has many fans of the game underwhelmed thus far. While the drop still provides plenty of Zedd’s signature thrills, the package on the whole feels a bit cheesy at times.
