To mark the global release of the much-hyped video game, “Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty,” Idris Elba (@idriselba), who plays one of the game’s lead characters, has released 3 original tracks in the form of an EP, entitled, “The Phantom Files (From Cyberpunk 2077),” with an accompanying music video for lead single, “Rolla Coaster,” coming very soon as well.

Released on Elba’s label, 7Wallace, the 3 tracks that are included in the game’s official soundtrack see Elba exploring a darker and more heavily produced sound, where glitches and industrial sounds speak to the game’s dystopian feel.
The 3 tracks (ChokeHold, Walk Of Shame, and Rolla Coaster) are featured throughout the game, as Idris Elba plays the key role of Solomon Reed, an FIA Agent for the New United States of America, who takes on an impossible mission of espionage and survival.

Musically, Idris has been riding a wave of renewed creative vigor, this unique release follows a string of tech-dance bangers which include the slamming house track, “Body Shots” and the Moombahton heater, “Biggest,” which was used by Apple to launch their iPhone 14. With this EP, Elba continues to push the envelope in creativity and cross-media music collaborations.
