Frozen Sleep – Halo 4 / Cortana Tribute Song

Ever since I played the ending of Halo 3, I’ve been haunted by the thought of Cortana all alone on the ship for many years. When Halo 4 trailers revealed that this was a difficult time for her because of the rampancy AI’s experience after a certain time in service, I really wanted to make a tribute song about that time. She is one of my favorite characters in video games.

Originally, I had wanted to do a Halo 4 cover that focused fully on this new game. However, once I finished the campaign, I realized that my love for the music in previous Halo titles stood strong. Since a lot of us have heard those melodies composed by Marty O’Donnell for years, it’s the music that’s easier to associate with Cortana and Master Chief. Those themes…  So beautiful. So right.
I hope you enjoy this tribute song! Thank you so much for listening.

    Hi Malukah! I adore your creativity, and your angelic voice is simply matchless. I with pleasure listen to your songs and I look forward to new! (By the way in this video the screen of your computer is reflected in the case of your guitar :-D). More thanks for your fine songs!

    Hello there,
    First, awesome work!
    Second, any chance that this song (Frozen Sleep) may end up on itunes?
    I bought a few of your songs there but could not find that one there.

    Love your voice, especially in Misty Mountains. Probably already been asked, but this is the first time at your website. Is Frozen Sleep not for purchase? Would love to have on iPod for whenever. (Not sure first comment posted).
