Florence and the Machine dropped an EP today with three new songs. The tracks, "Too Much Is Never Enough," "I Will Be" and a cover of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," were recorded for the Final Fantasy XV video game.
In a prepared statement announcing the release, singer Florence Welch says, "In some ways the landscape of Final Fantasy and my own internal landscape seemed to fit quite well, it's mythical and beautiful and epic." Welch adds that she decided to do the project after discovering the range of songs that appear in video games. "It was really fascinating, the music was incredibly beautiful and emotional and I took it as a sort of sign, to see what I can do in this medium."
The EP, Songs from Final Fantasy XV, is out now on Island Records.
