Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music at EA commented, “We’ve been working for nearly a year to deliver what we believe is the ultimate FIFA 08 soundtrack. These are the most songs ever in a FIFA edition representing the most countries in the history of the videogame. In addition to an unprecedented mix of great global artists and some killer debut acts, we’re also proud to showcase our premiere Artwerk signings Junkie XL, Jupiter One and Datarock. And as in seasons past, we know that some of the hottest new artists of the coming year will emerge from our soundtrack. This is the true spirit of the EA SPORTS FIFA games: An unparalleled experience where one-of-a-kind action goes head-to-head with the thrill of the unexpected. It’s the only way to play what has become one of the most popular and only truly international sports videogame in our world today.”
