Square Enix has released a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV that shows off the music of Grammy-nominated Florence + The Machine in their cover of “Stand By Me”.
Square Enix have enlisted other music industry stars in the past, such as Leona Lewis, singing “My Hands” for Final Fantasy XIII and Charice, singing “New World” for Final Fantasy XIII-2.
“I’ve always seen FINAL FANTASY as mythical, beautiful and epic,” said Florence from Florence + the Machine. “‘Stand by Me’ is one of the greatest songs probably of all time and you can’t really improve on it, you just have to make it your own. For me it was just about bringing the song into the world of Florence and the Machine and the world of FINAL FANTASY.”
