FIFA 22 releases soundtrack featuring Area 21, Swedish House Mafia, DJ Snake, Major Lazer and more

When it comes to the world of gaming merging with music, there might not be a company that understands the assignment better than EA Sports. Once again, on the 22nd edition of their world-renowned football game, they have delivered. With 122 tracks, FIFA 22 includes the game’s biggest catalog to date. The list features some of dance music’s most iconic acts. From Swedish House Mafia to Area 21, DJ Snake and Major Lazer, the team at EA made sure EDM was well represented.

The catalog splits between the two game modes, regular in-game and Volta Football. You will be able to find Area 21’s (Martin Garrix and Maejor) newest single “Followers” and Swedish House Mafia’s “Lifetime” within the regular game mode.

“The spirit of the FIFA 22 Soundtrack can be felt in the stands at The Etihad and San Siro or the sands of Tulum and Ibiza.” – EA Sports

The Volta Football game mode features almost entirely all electronic artists. Some included in the list are AC Slater, Baauer, Firebeatz, Keys N Krates, RL Grime and The Chemical Brothers. You will also find Major Lazer’s “Titans” VIP Remix and DJ Snake and Malaa’s Pondicherry on FIFA 22‘s Volta mode.

“Under buzzing street lights in neighbourhoods from Lagos and São Paulo to Los Angeles and Rome. Its gritty underground vibe can be felt in the scuttling trainers on a packed dirt lot or hot concrete playground. Anywhere that players can express their individual style, the soundtrack will be the amped-up underscore to all the action.” – EA Sports

EA Sports is a proud proponent of making their FIFA series as globally inclusive as possible, highlighting as many artists across the world as possible. According to EA’s announcement page, they are able to represent 27 different nations within the soundtrack of FIFA 22.

“It’s a soundtrack with a soul. Designed to trigger emotion through a fearless blend of genres. It breaks ground every year and drives worldwide culture. More than just the #1 international destination for new music, it is a collective energy that ignites the year to come. Artists recognize this, coveting spots on the soundtrack that will take their careers to the next level.” – EA Sports

As the franchise marks its 26th year, this soundtrack is undoubtedly their best yet. It will open ears across the world to a brand new style of music and connect people globally as one when the game releases on October 1st.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and KSHMR. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon!
