NBA 2K15 Kevin Durant cover art revealed; Pharrell Williams named music curator
2K Sports has revealed the cover art for NBA 2K15, and it feature NBA MVP Kevin Durant in typical 2K fashion.
Durant can be seen dribbling the ball with his eyes on what one would assume to be the basket. The cover athlete will have a special mode dedicated to him, as well. Though there are no details on the mode yet, Kevin Durant tweeted a picture of himself saying "Did some work with @NBA2K on a very cool and secret project for #NBA2K15. More info coming soon #YourTimeHasCome."
In addition to the cover art reveal, 2K also announced that Grammy Award winning singer Pharrell Williams will be the music curator for NBA 2K15's soundtrack. Williams replaces Lebron James, who chose the soundtrack for last year's game.
2K Sports has said that the soundtrack for this year's game will be the "most extensive and unique soundtrack compilation in NBA 2K franchise history.
In a statement, Pharrell Williams said, "It was a cool experience. I tried to curate songs that were diverse but yet still proved to be motivational to gamers. It was important to me that the music complemented the on-court action of NBA basketball in NBA 2K15. I hope everyone enjoys it." Pharrell Williams is best known for making up part of the record production duo The Neptunes, being the lead vocalist and drummer for N.E.R.D., producing many hit songs, releasing his own solo albums, and enjoyed his most recent success with his own song "Happy," Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines," and Daft Punk's song "Get Lucky."
The soundtrack will be announced later on. NBA 2K15 launches on October 7 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.
