Whether it has been MVP Baseball, Madden NFL or NBA Live, the soundtracks that EA Sports curates for their sporting video games is often a close second when it comes to anticipation of their latest titles. Okay, maybe not a “close” second, but they have really music worthy of the accolades.
So, it is not a complete surprise that an artist of the caliber of Avicii would choose to release a new single via FIFA 2015. Still, it is a really score for the giant soccer video game franchise. Making the pairing even more perfect is the fact that the song has a similar anthemic, Americana vibe to his previous hits including “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother,” making it easily reminiscent of the the atmosphere of European football games (not to mention ready to hit radio playlists).
