The music and gameplay of Hotline Miami are so intertwined in my mind that I'm hesitant to listen to tracks off thesequel's soundtrack beforehand. Oh, what the hell? One can't hurt!
This song, "The Way Home, comes from Magic Sword. "We really like the original Hotline Miami, so were excited to get involved with the sequel," the masked electronic group told The Guardian.
"Hotline Miami has a lot in common with '80s movies like Thief and Blade Runner. Movies like that and their synth-heavy soundtracks have always been big inspirations for us."
