Despite last year's soundtrack being a bit lackluster (albeit fixed by the Ultimate Playlist), I'm always excited for the tunes from the latest release of EA's flagship football property. No, not Madden - the real football, EA Sports FC 24. It's a good way to discover some new music and a little distraction to the background sounds of my work day.
This year's playlist is 85 tracks long and criss crosses multiple genres of major label superstars and indie artists. The Rolling Stones, Major Lazer, Kendrick Lamar and more represent a lineup with multi-diamond and multi-platinum records; won awards from BET, MOBO, MTV Europe, Q, Grammy's, and Latin Grammy's; as well as breakout stars and previously unreleased tracks.
EA Sports FC 24 releases September 29th, 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Early access through the Ultimate Edition opens a week early, on September 22nd. Check out the playlist below.
