English indie rock band Florence + the Machine debuted three new songs in collaboration with Square Enix's upcoming Final Fantasy XV game. Two of the songs — "Too Much is Never Enough" and "I Will Be" — are originals, and the third is a cover of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me."
Square Enix began streaming a game trailer featuring the song "I Will Be" on Friday.
All three songs are available on Spotify.
Lead singer Florence Welch said of the collaboration, "In some ways the landscape of Final Fantasy XV and my own internal landscape seemed to fit quite well, it's mythical and beautiful and epic."
The game is slated for release on September 30. The game will have a Deluxe Edition, which will come with a steelbook case, a copy of the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV film, and three DLC items, including: a Royal Raiment outfit, a Masamune weapon, and a Platinum Leviathan recoloring of the Regalia vehicle.

The Collector's Edition will include all the items in the Deluxe Edition, but also adds a 192-page art book, an Play Arts Kai figure of Noctis, a soundtrack that includes music from the game as well as the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime and the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, a copy of the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime, and four additional items, including: a Travel Pack, Camera Kit, Angler Set, and Gourmand Set. The Collector's Edition retails for US$269.99.
Square Enix is also offering a Digital Premium Edition of the game that includes the downloadable version of the game and the Season Pass for upcoming DLC. The Digital Premium Edition retails for US$84.99.
