Set for release on October 1, the latest instalment in the long-running football video game series will be soundtracked by 47 artists.
It includes the likes of Chvrches recent single ‘Good Girls’, Little Simz’s ‘Fear No Man’ and Yard Act’s ‘The Overload’.
Reacting to the news that their song featured on the soundtrack, Yard Act wrote on Twitter: “It’s official!! The Overload will feature on @EASPORTSFIFA22 soundtrack. So chuffed! To celebrate, I’ll be releasing the footage from my scouting trials in the early 2000s tomorrow morning. Coincidentally, I looked quite similar then to how I do now.”
Speaking about the single recently frontman James Smith said: “We all succumb to fear most of the time, and it explains a lot about why we make the decisions we do. I imagine the chorus delivered by a Greek chorus; omnipresent, and encompassing the themes of not only this song, but the whole album. That’s what ‘The Overload’ is essentially. It’s everything happening at once, and it’s our tiny, feeble minds trying to process and cope with it. Good luck.”
