Together With Call of Duty, Oliver Heldens Releases Warzone Season 4 Anthem ‘Sound of Vondel’

Commemorating the launch of Season 4 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Oliver Heldens has released the anthem, based of the new Warzone map Vondel. Inspired by Heldens’ techno-driven alter ego HI-LO, ‘Sound Of Vondel’ takes listeners on a thrilling and immersive sonic expedition that captures the essence of the epic gameplay experience synonymous with Call of Duty. With a darkly propulsive and atmospheric sound, this track effortlessly embodies the expectations of fans worldwide. As an avid fan and player of the game, Heldens skillfully incorporates elements from Call of Duty itself, including the iconic voice of Captain Price from Modern Warfare, a beloved character among gamers.

“I’ve been playing Call of Duty for as long as I can remember”, says Heldens. “I even named a bunch of my first officially released tracks in 2013 based upon inspiration from the iconic Modern Warfare 2 game. To collaborate with the Activision team and to create some truly authentic music as the official anthem for the new Vondel map in Warzone is a massive honor to me!”

The track takes us into the sonic world of Vondel, a historic district within a greater metropolis built on an extensive river network. The waterfront district of a Baroque European city where centuries of old-world history blend with modern architectural developments. This medium-sized map is ready to host Resurgence, DMZ, and the Lockdown LTM at launch, as well as the standard Battle Royale in-Season.

“Collaborating with Oliver Heldens has been an extremely exciting project for us”, commented Michelle Bresaw, VP and Head of Live Services at Activision. “With the launch of Vondel, we wanted to encapsulate the Baroque feel of our new medium-sized Warzone map through a well-known European export, EDM. The marrying of a global DJ and the Call of Duty franchise acts as a celebration of what’s possible when the games and music industries collide.”
