Pharrell Williams, the man behind two of last year’s biggest tracks (“Blurred Lines” and “Happy”), has curated the soundtrack for NBA 2k15.
Speaking about the role, Pharrell said: “It was a cool experience. I tried to curate songs that were diverse but yet still proved to be motivational to gamers.
“It was important to me that the music complemented the on-court action of NBA basketball in NBA 2K15. I hope everyone enjoys it.”
2K’s VP marketing Alfie Brody commented: “Pharrell’s passion and reputation as a visionary producer and expertise from working with the NBA will be evident in the largest and most eclectic NBA 2K soundtrack ever.
“We really listened to our fans’ feedback on how we could improve their experience from a music standpoint, and we’re confident Pharrell’s collaboration in NBA 2K15 will impress players as much as it’s impressed us.”
Jay-Z and LeBron James have previously crafted the soundtracks to NBA 2k13 and 2k14 respectively.
NBA 2k15 is set to release on October 10th for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
