Porter Robinson has returned with a new single, ‘Everything Goes On’, made in partnership with Riot Games‘ Star Guardian event. Kicking off today, the 10-week immersive experience is a tribute to the magical girl (mahō shōjo) anime genre and brings new in-game and out-of-game content to League of Legends, League of Legends: Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra. Check out Robinson’s event theme below.
“One of my favourite things in the world is the combination of music and animation,” Robinson said of the track, which he wrote, performed, and produced. “Something about a quick series of shots of beloved characters and these little slices of life in dramatic moments cut to emotionally intense music, just gets me every time. The idea that I had was when you take the oath to become a Star Guardian, you get to live this life as this hero, but everybody that knew you before will forget about you. I wrote the lyrics with the perspective of the last night together and focusing on the tragedy of that. Fiction plays such an important part in people’s everyday lives. The stories that we tell ourselves and the stories that we bear witness to inform the way that we see the world, and I think that ultimately, this song ended up becoming this synthesis of sad story scenarios and what I was going through in real life.”
