Florence and the Machine Do 'Stand By Me' For Final Fantasy Trailer: Week in Review

On Friday Florence and the Machine Do 'Stand By Me' For Final Fantasy Trailer was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) For the fifteenth installment of the Final Fantasy RPG series, developers spared nothing on the rollout. A trailer released for the forthcoming game features a Florence + the Machine cover of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," lending their signature drama and discordant mysticism to a pop standard.

Frontwoman Florence Welch said their contribution to Final Fantasy XV promos was a natural fit. 'I've always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic," she said in a statement. Who knew she was a gamer?

Following their GRAMMY-nominated album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, Flo and company appear to be branching out into diverse new projects. It has been teased that Welch will collaborate on dance music with Diplo and Skrillex. Watch the trailer - here.
