The voice of Laura Shigihara
will forever be synonymous among WoW
fans with the Singing Sunflower
pet -– that ineffably perky little companion so fond of cheerfully reminding you "There's a zombie on your law-awn ..." It's been a while since the Plants vs. Zombies
theme song composer has sung any music related to World of Warcraft
, but she's got a new tune out and it's one that Shigihara fans have been clamoring for years to hear: "Lament of the Highborne."
"At first I didn't want to cover this song, since there are already so many lovely covers out there (and the original is already so perfect as is)," she admits, "but hopefully folks are still able to enjoy it."
Whether it's zombies on the lawn or the haunting lament of Lady Sylvanas' banshees, we suspect that enjoying Shigihara's work is probably a safe bet. Enjoy!
