In collaboration with Square Enix, English band Florence + the Machine released Songs from Final Fantasy XV today, which includes three tracks from the upcoming Final Fantasy XV. The selection includes a cover of Stand By Me, which was first heard in the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event back in March.
“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. It wouldn’t have made sense,” Florence said on her decision to collaborate with Final Fantasy XV. “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.”
