Video game developers Electronic Arts (EA) have announced a new collaboration with Interscope Records. As the gaming company prepares to release the latest edition of “Madden NFL” in a week, on Friday (Aug. 13), EA Sports put out an official Madden NFL ‘22 album.
The soundtrack features 11 exclusive songs recorded just for the game. Hip hop stars Swae Lee, J.I.D., Tierra Whack, Moneybagg Yo, 42 Dugg, Morray and more artists bring the hits off the field and let the NFL superstars take care of the hits on the field.
“Over the past decades, ‘Madden NFL’ has become a platform for fans to discover new music, launching new stars and establishing trends that have changed the way players play the game and how they experience NFL football itself,” said Steve Schnur, President of EA Music in a statement. “Working with Interscope, one of the most forward-thinking, risk-taking labels in the industry, we’ve created a cohesive, innovative soundtrack that connects gaming, football and music culture for the next generation.”
While the Madden NFL ‘22 Soundtrack is made up of music from strictly Interscope artists, the game itself is composed of 65 total songs created by an eclectic group of entertainers. A handful of current hits by Drake, Lil Baby, J. Cole, and more will be in the game and gamers can look forward to new tunes from Killer Mike, Leikeli47 and Swae Lee.
“I’ve had a long relationship with EA Sports and I’m excited to release my new song, ‘Ball is Life,’ with Jack Harlow on The Madden NFL ‘22 Soundtrack,” said Swae Lee in a statement.
