The Witch Queen launch trailer made a significant splash when Bungie released it last week, and that splash came in no small part because of the song playing throughout the preview's short runtime. Players immediately responded to this licensed song and expressed curiosity about its origins. Bungie's trailer didn't provide an answer, leaving those players out in the cold.

Luckily, the trailer music is no secret. Here's what you need to know about the song, including who made it and where you can find it for yourself.

Witch Queen Launch Trailer Song: Who is the Artist?

The Witch Queen launch trailer uses the song "Cruel World" by Phantogram, a song that appeared on the group's 2016 album "Three." The song is available on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and Napster for those looking to listen without a purchase, but it can also be bought through the iTunes Store, Google Play, Amazon Music and Phantogram's own website. There, you'll also be able to purchase a physical CD if that moves you.

Phantogram is an American duo consisted of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel. They describe their music as "street beat, psych pop." They've released a total of four albums, four EPs and 10 singles.
