Nine Inch Nails Featured On Soundtrack For FIFA 14 Game
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.16.2013
Billboard reports that Nine Inch Nails' "Copy of A" will be featured on the soundtrack for EA's FIFA 14, along with Vampire Weekend, Bloc Party and others. Here are highlights of an interview with EA Music Group President Steven Schnur on the game and soundtrack:
On how video games help music sales: "How many times a song comes up in a typical game play should be taken into account with how many games sold. If it's heard twice an hour and somebody plays that game two hundred hours, you can imagine, it's like getting an "A" rotation on a global radio station."
On what the FIFA soundtrack represents: "The one thing that is important to know about the FIFA soundtrack is that it represents not just where music is at, but where music is on a global scale. The reasoning behind that is that soccer/fútbol is a sport that has no boundaries. Someone in the U.S. will discover some cool young hip band from Brazil and someone from Brazil will discover the next new band from Germany, and so on and so on."
On how they picked the artists: "We don't have a type of artist or genre of artist. That doesn't mean it doesn't have a consistency to it. I probably would never end up putting a jazz song or a Barry Manilow song in a FIFA game. But electronic music, rock music, hip hop, pop music, world music, has all been represented in this game."
The game will be released on September 24.
