Refused Premiere New Song “Never Fade Away” As Samurai

Refused have premiered a new song titled “Never Fade Away.” The track was recorded under the name Samurai for the new video game “Cyberpunk 2077” (out April 16).

The group commented:

“When CD PROJEKT RED approached us about writing music for ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘, we jumped at the chance. Partly because of the challenge: to write music for a fictional band that was similar to Refused, but quite different at the same time, having the music and lyrics be shaped and determined by the feel, tone and plot of an outside narrative.

The timing was perfect, we had just finished ‘War Music‘ and were still in the zone songwriting-wise. Most importantly though, it seemed to us sort of like a 2019 version of when Cannibal Corpse was in ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective‘, in other words: very cool.

Props to P.T. Adamczyk, in-house composer at CDPR, for having the vision, writing it with us, producing and seeing the whole thing through. And no, we had no idea that dude from Steve Martin‘s ‘Parenthood‘ was gonna be the lead singer.”

As previously reported, Refused‘s new album “War Music” will be released on October 18.
