Florence and the Machine Cover "Stand By Me" for 'Final Fantasy' Trailer

Publish date:

The gorgeous new trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV (September 30!) is out now and it features a nice surprise: it’s soundtracked by a cover of “Stand By Me” by Florence and the Machine

“I’ve always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic,” said Florence Welch in a statement addressing the collaboration. “‘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.”
