Compton MC Kendrick Lamar has contributed an original piece to Ubisoft’s forthcoming Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier video game (does that mean Ubisoft reads our site?) In a press release, Lamar said “War Is My Love” was written as he tried to put himself “in the shoes of the Ghosts from the video game and capture that feeling of being willing to wage war and do whatever it takes to claim victory.” The resulting track features the deliberate marching of keys and orchestral strings, the perfect backdrop for Lamar’s rhymes about the off-putting beauty of war (“Wake up in the morning and I gotta win/Not taking the victory is my only sin”). Stream it below.
