FIFA 09 Soundtrack Announced by EA
In what has become an annual tradition, FIFA 09 features a handpicked roster of Platinum acts and new artists from around the world that defines the sound of the coming football season. This year’s soundtrack includes tracks from Scotland’s finest, The Fratellis, and Irish trio, The Script – currently on course for the number 1 slot in this week’s UK album charts. Other UK highlights come from pop sensations The Ting Tings, Kasabian, The Kooks, Foals and Duffy.
“We have exceeded our annual challenge to create videogames’ preeminent international soundtrack,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA. “No other game has been as influential with regards to new music, and FIFA 09 truly raises the bar worldwide. We’re excited that Brazilian fans of Curumin will hear Spain’s The Pinker Tones and Norway’s Datarock. We’re proud that Canadians who love Chromeo will discover Ladytron from England and Junkie XL from Holland. We want fans throughout France, Mexico and Germany to find that their favourite new song is by Señor Flavio from Argentina, DJ Bitman from Chile or Jupiter One from New York. FIFA 09 will take music globalization to a whole new level.”
