Florence And The Machine Releases Three New Songs From “Final Fantasy XV” Soundtrack: Listen
Florence + The Machine has released three new songs for the latest version of video game Final Fantasy XV, ahead of its September 30 release date.
The collection includes two epic original numbers (“Too Much Is Never Enough” and “I Will Be”) and an endlessly ethereal rendition of Ben E. King classic “Stand By Me,” which the band teased in the game’s trailer earlier this March. Not to mention, the songs were also all produced by Emile Haynie, who has penned hits for the likes of Lana Del Rey and Kanye West.
“I’ve always seen ‘Final Fantasy’ as a beautiful and creative game so I don’t think I could have worked with another video game,” said Florence Welch of her choice to collaborate on the project. “It wouldn’t have made sense. In some ways the landscape of ‘Final Fantasy’ and my own internal landscape seemed to fit quite well, it’s mythical and beautiful and epic.”
