The imitable Florence + the Machine release a special collaboration recorded for the upcoming video game FINAL FANTASY® XV from Square Enix.
The three tracks, “Too Much Is Never Enough”, “I Will Be” and “Stand By Me”, were recorded in Air Studios in London with, producer and composer, Emile Haynie (Kanye West, Lana Del Rey). “Too Much…” is a cinematic epic, featuring sweeping strings and Florence’s rich, emotive vocals. “I will be” is an evocative ballad, while her take on “Stand By Me” gives the Ben E King classic a beautiful, melancholy edge.
“I was listening to Classic FM and there was a whole two hour program about classical music in videogames. It was so inspiring and a whole scope of music that I didn’t know about. ” Florence says of her decision to get involved in the project. “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.”
