The ‘FIFA 18’ soundtrack is 40 tracks of excellence

This soundtrack is great.

Each year the FIFA soundtrack impresses with the breadth and mix of genres in its lineup, and FIFA 18 is no exception. The full 40 song track listing was released Thursday and it’s pretty great.

There are plenty of names you’ll recognize here, like Lorde, The xx, and Weezer — but what’s always made the FIFA soundtrack great is showcasing music by artists that don’t get enough play in the U.S.

One song I kept coming back to while listening to the soundtrack is “Ça Va Pas La Tête?” by Témé Tan, a Belgian musician who pulls from his Congolese roots and blends it with Motown influences — I’ll be playing this one for a while.

It’s the kind of amazing song we just don’t hear very often, or at least I don’t, and it’s one of the best things about the soundtrack every year.

What do you think is the best song on the FIFA 18 soundtrack?
