Songs feature on new 'Final Fantasy' video game soundtrack
Florence And The Machine have contributed three new songs to the soundtrack of the latest Final Fantasy game.
‘Songs From Final Fantasy XV’ is available now and includes two new cuts (‘Too Much Is Never Enough’ and ‘I Will Be’) from the Florence Welch-led group, plus a cover of Ben E King classic ‘Stand By Me’.
Welch says in a press release: “I was listening to Classic FM and there was a whole two hour programme about classical music in video games”.
“It was so inspiring and a whole scope of music that I didn’t know about. It was really fascinating, the music was incredibly beautiful and emotional and I took it as a sort of sign, to see what I can do in this medium.”

Banks and Steelz recently spoke about working with Welch on their forthcoming album ‘Anything But Words’.
The duo – Interpol’s Paul Banks and Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA – are set to drop their first album together on August 26. RZA’s Wu-Tang Clan bandmates Method Mad, Ghostface Killah and Masta Killa all feature on the album, while the Florence & The Machine frontwoman guests on a track called ‘Wild Season’.
Explaining how their collaboration with Welch came about, Banks tells NME in a video interview: “Interpol was on tour last year and our final show was in Ireland. And as I got off stage, she approached me… and she was super-sweet and friendly. So we talked and exchanged information, and then I kind of circled back to her.”
