As FIFA 19 prepares to be unleashed this week, we look at some of the biggest bangers on its accompanying soundtrack.
FIFA 19 is on its way, with the football video game set to be officially released this Friday (28 September).
A lot has changed since FIFA first came to our screens in the early 90s. See the evolution of the game in our video above.
Luckily the official soundtrack is already out there to whet our appetites, and to celebrate Radio X have rounded up some of the tracks sure to have us nodding our heads throughout the game.
Get our rundown of some of the best below:
This brass-laden dance track from the two London-based producers is a perfect way to kick off this year's cool soundtrack.
The Australian singer-songwriter's riff-tastic single comes from her most recent solo effort Tell Me How You Really Feel.
It's chilled, it's cool, and we can imagine it being played at half time.
Gorillaz funky chill-out tune Sorcererz features on their The Now Now album, which is out... now.
When it comes to FIFA, this isn't Jungle's first rodeo. FIFA helped make their Busy Earnin' single HUGE, and it may just do the same for their new track Beat 54 (All Good Now).
Listen to a live version of the song above.
Sam Fender absolutely smashes it on the vocal front on this anthemic track. No doubt we'll be hearing a lot more from this singer-songwriter in 2018...
The Scottish Hip-Hop act continue to prove they sound like absolutely no one else right now with their Border Girl track, which features on newly released album Cocoa Sugar.
If we're talking atmospheric, it doesn't get much better than this. It might not be a balls-to-the-wall anthem, but frontman Pete Restrick's vocals are otherworldly and uplifting all at once.
Now you wouldn't usually associate Death Cab For Cutie with the football video game, but their Gold Rush track has all the makings of a great chilled FIFA track.
Need we say much more?
This summery ditty from the English-Spanish trio was absolutely made for a soundtrack, and we wouldn't be surprised if we started hearing it everywhere.
