EA kicks off FIFA 09 tracklist

Duffy, Hot Chip, CSS, The Ting Tings, Kasabian, The Kooks, and The Fratellis in the latest soundtrack; Junkie XL back for another season.

The new football season is almost upon the hordes of faithful fans, and just as the sport is referred to as the world game, FIFA 09 will feature a healthy range of flavours from across the globe. Acts slated to lend their tunes hail from regions such as Europe, the USA, South America, and Australia, resulting in a squad of 41 tracks from 21 nations.

This year, the UK has the largest contingent, represented by an assorted flavour of pop, dance, indie, and alternative rock, with Scotland's The Fratellis and Ireland's The Script, as well as England's The Ting Tings, Kasabian, The Kooks, Foals, and Welsh songstress Duffy included in the mix. As has been the case in recent years, there's a solid lineup of electronic acts including CSS, Cut Copy, Datarock, Hot Chip, Ladytron, and frequent EA collaborator Junkie XL.

Almost as diverse as football fans themselves, the game will be available in 18 languages across 37 countries worldwide. FIFA 09 will be kicking off on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS on October 3, and North America on October 14 (with FIFA 09 landing on the Wii October 28).

alz619 - everyone sees music differently, you can't just spout off the tracklist IS crap only because you, personally don't like anything, everyone likes different things and in my opinion it's quite good, and seriously, metal? how would that work with football?

Ting Tings aren't bad they have some good songs, same with Chromeo and CSS. But this year is missing a solid #1 song. P.S. Bloc Party is awesome

I don't know any of those bands but it doesn't matter because I always turn the music off in all games except GTA. I'll turn on the radio instead.

I like the international soundtrack, but the only good song on there is by The Kooks.

The Fifa games always have the best licenced-soundtrack. Fifa World Cup '06 had the single greatest soundtrack of any game (excluding original scores in games like Halo and Mass Effect). The variety and the international flare in that game were great.

Spryt: "I prefer FIFA to Pre Evo trollop anyday but come on... Duffy!? The Ting Ting's!!?? Yeah the average football fans really are teenage girls & woman with their girly nights in - give us our bloke anthems like Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Hard-Fi. FFS EA, think about it!" Yeah, the soundtracks in EA's games just suck (with the exception of Rock Band, obviously). Need For Speed ProStreet, anyone?

Best SOng in my opinion From my experience fifa 05-08: 1.Helicopter- Block Party 2.Monster- Automatics 3. Potential Futures Side note: -O8' had no good songs agreed? -Go Arsenal and Leeds

I got some songs in my PS3 HDD I love to play. I really hope EA has custom soundtrack option.

Some of Britain's worst there :) Need some Shy Child and Justice like GTA 4

To Spryt: Don't forget EA also added the option to turn off tracks you don't like. I hope we can do it in FIFA 09 as well because this option is truly a great one and helps "fix" the track-list by telling the game not to play the annoying tracks (like the different electronic "music" garbage EA likes to add to the game for some reason).

i don't get how fifa is the only EA game that always brings good tracks to the game.

I prefer FIFA to Pre Evo trollop anyday but come on... Duffy!? The Ting Ting's!!?? Yeah the average football fans really are teenage girls & woman with their girly nights in - give us our bloke anthems like Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Hard-Fi. FFS EA, think about it! If theres anyone thinking about starting a sexist jibe think about it - how much dignity do you think you can keep when you've got the lads round with the beers & take aways & listen to "Mercy" when your on the menu's... yeah, that makes me feel like i'm on my way to the big game on a saturday afternoon.

tupac-makaveli... uh no... Fifa 08 soundtrack was quite hip and cool. I'm sure this one will follow suit.

signore

i hope tupac-makaveli is joking Even though I dont really recognize any of the artists or tracks in the list im pretty confident it will be a great soundtrack. FIFA 08 and Euro 08 had great tunes. MGMT-Kids is a great song (their whole CD is amazing, check it out)
