EA Announces NBA Live 08
Soundtrack

Top International Artists Include
Joss Stone, Timbaland, Stephen Marley, Eve, and The Hives produced by Pharrell
Williams

Electronic Arts today unveiled the
music track listing for NBA LIVE 08 set to release October 2, 2007. Long
considered the industry’s most influential launching pad for innovative new
music, this year’s soundtrack features 19 songs – including 5 debut tracks – for
an unprecedented international mix of hip-hop, rock, reggae, R&B and more.

The set includes tracks by old
school legends DJ Jazzy Jeff featuring CL Smooth and KRS-One & Marley Marl, as
well as underground hip-hop players The Cool Kids and Kid Beyond, along with 15
instrumental tracks produced by Agallah the Don Bishop. Several of the year’s
most acclaimed and daring new artists make appearances, including Norway ravers
Datarock, New York City’s acclaimed dance-punk project LCD Soundsystem, and Mark
Ronson with a cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic”. The NBA’s burgeoning European
presence is felt via cuts from Britain’s DJ Vadim, R&B sensation Joss Stone; Ska
kings Dub Pistols featuring Terry Hall of ‘80s legends The Specials; and the
debut of Electro-Soul collective UnkleJam.

Other debuts on the game include
“Customer” from rising Bad Boy Aasim; “Get The Feeling”, the title track of the
forthcoming debut album from Latino hip-hop/R&B trio The Dey; “It Don’t Make Any
Difference” from soul-funk wunderkind Kevin Michael featuring Wyclef Jean; and
“Well Alright”, an incendiary collaboration between Swedish rockers The Hives
and multi-platinum beat master Pharrell Williams.,

“When it comes to defining new music
for the coming year, the NBA LIVE soundtrack is the music industry’s top
playmaker,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA.
“On previous soundtracks, we’ve introduced acts like Fabolous, Gnarls Barkley,
Lupe Fiasco and Mark Ronson. This year, Mark returns with a great new track, The
Dey and Kevin Michael will be among the year’s breakthrough artists, we’ve got
several landmark collaborations, and we’re proud to have what may be the
strongest singles ever from Eve, Timbaland and Stephen Marley. The goal remains
to further define the global cultural phenomenon of music – and help shape its
future – via one of the hottest sports videogame franchises in the world today.
The NBA LIVE soundtrack is now officially a dynasty.”
