Today was a BIG day. It’s a BIG day because Fifa 16 is being released. Anyone who plays Fifa on the regs knows that FIFA the GOAT of video games. Outside of the gameplay, FIFA always comes loaded with a great soundtrack. EA Sports consistently deliver a soundtrack comprised of proven stars, up and comers, and international artists.
Getting a song on the FIFA soundtrack often serves as a boost for artists looking to make a name for themselves. It’s no coincidence that many of the under the radar bands that feature on the soundtrack end up playing the festival circuit when summer time rolls around. While Fifa 15 had big names like Avicii, A-Trak, Foster the People, Madeon, and the Kooks it also had under the radar bands that blew up including Milky Chance, Vance Joy, Slaptop, and Saint Motel.
These are my early favorites:
- Yeah Yeah Yeah by Jax Jones
- Tonight by Coasts
- ID- Ultra Music Festival Anthem by Kygo
- Dreams by Beck
- Omen by Disclosure & Sam Smith
- Emergency by Icon Pop
I’m going to do a follow up to this blog in a few months and pick out the ‘Top 5 Fifa 16 songs that make me want to throw my controller through a wall’. That’s the type of blog that can only be written after playing/ listening to the soundtrack repetitively for a few months.
