“TEARS” by HEALTH Single Now Available on iTunes

Posted on May 15 2012, 3:06pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Music, Games
"TEARS", the original song by Max Payne 3 Soundtrack composers HEALTH first heard in the game's official TV spot is now available as a single on iTunes.
HEALTH’s unique blend of rock, powerful drums and electronic soundscapes lends itself perfectly to the score for the game. Taking influences from Brazil, Max’s native New York and the themes of the original games, HEALTH have put together a fantastic soundtrack that perfectly embodies the tone and the atmosphere of Max Payne 3. Distinctive arrangements unique to each level accompany Max on his journey through the game's locations, perfectly framing the game's epic action sequences and the dark and gritty story.

For all fans asking for the full version of the song since it was first heard a few weeks back, you can listen to it below or head to iTunes now for the single download.

      Try emailling them. That's what I'm gonna do right now. I need the lyrics.

        I guess that means "no".

          @TenderBranson Oh yeah, lyrics would be great.
          I'm not english fluent, and although I understand the language very well, confirming what I'm listening would be perfect. Specially when the song has this kind of hypnotic vocals.

          @UnCool_Head Yeah, some of the lines I'm sure about, and others I think I'm right, but then there're some lines that I just can't decipher...

          But since R* has ignored this question twice, I doubt I'll ever get the lyrics to find out if I'm close at all...

          @TenderBranson A little late, but... anyways. Here's lyrics.

          Love, save us once
          We'll fall from where we crawled
          Love, save us once
          Beware of what you want

          Trust us now, it's time to let me go
          Give up on us, follow what you want
          Trust us now, it's time to let me go
          Give up, give our soul away

          Now you will go, save us once
          We'll never let go, where we crawled
          The memories are wrong, Save us once
          We'll never wake up, what you thought you want

          Trust us now, It's time to let me go
          Give up for now, follow what you want
          Trust us now, it's time to let me go
          Give up, Give our soul away

          Remember with love
          It's time to let me never let go
          Follow in your memories alone
          It's time to let me never let go
          We die alone

            Great song. Holy Rockstar, you guys know how to pick artists and songs for your games.
            I watched the 20+ minutes credits without regrets.

                  This song is amazing. Great job with the music and ambient music in general. This track made that gunfight in the airport soo much more enjoyable. Can't wait to replay this game on hard to play it again, but now it's time to jump into some mp.

                        @dwindlebag Sorry mate - we know this is annoying, but it's going to be one more day for the final mastered soundtrack files. We hope to have it up tomorrow as early in the day as possible. As a token of our gratitude for your patience though, we are adding bonus tracks to the free Soundtrack download including "TEARS" which was originally planned as an iTunes exclusive. Thanks again for your patience.

                      Kinda reminds me of Deadman's Gun from RDR, I know the vibe is very different but I find the voices a bit similar.

                      Wonderful piece.

                        This is absolutely a great song by HEALTH! I am definitely buying this single in addition to the soundtrack. Just hearing the opening guitar riffs at the beginning amps me up every time I hear it without fail. This actually tops the Late Goodbye song by Poets of the Fall that played during the Max Payne 2 credits. Anyone else plays Max Payne 2 every now and then just to hear the credits? Well done R*!

                          When this song comes on during the game, one of the best moments in video game history!

                            I don't get Max Payne 3 until 18th of May so at the moment I am playing Saints Row The Third and put this song on while I was playing SR3 and it makes SR3 feel so much better. Why don't you buy the IP or rights to make this SR3 Rockstar you guys would make it so much better than violtion and THQ.

                                @GJunkie We haven't confirmed that for sure yet - but stay tuned. If there is a physical release, we will let you know here at the Newswire. Cheers

                                  Fantastic track! Love it. I've listened to it a dozen times at this point.

                                  Just finished Acts 1 and 2. Holy crap! Some of the stuff that happens in Act 2 was completely unexpected and shocking. Great writing.

                                    Sheesh, I finally get home to play a few hours of MP and the servers are down. Any word on when this will be resolved? Sheesh, Rockstar hypes their "Crew Up" site and, after getting countless crews started, don't even have the decency to provide a place for us to establish our feuds!
