EA Sports have announced the soundtrack for the inaugural game of their EA Sports FC series, FC 24.
FC 24 is the first game of the FIFA franchise since EA Sports ended their partnership with the football association, hence the change in name.
The soundtrack features international heavyweights such as Kendrick Lamar, Fred again.. and Skrillex. Genres range from rap to reggaeton to grime, with Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive and President of Music for Electronic Arts, declaring it "a definitive global soundtrack that builds on innovation and authenticity like never before".

Other stars such as Central Cee, Jeshi, Ninho and Stormzy all feature in a UK rap heavy playlist. Electronic artists from across Britain are also present, with Overmono, Barry Can't Swim, Sam Gellaitry and Romy all making their EA Sports FC debuts. The enormity of soundtracking millions of players' goals, slide tackles and red cards is not lost on the artists, with indie band the Last Dinner Party summing it up best:
can’t believe Nothing Matters is going to be a FIFA soundtrack song. that’s a whole generation of teenagers who will hear it and go ‘that’s a FIFA song’ for the rest of their lives— The Last Dinner Party (@lastdinnerparty) September 20, 2023
