Catering to sports fans, gamers and music lovers alike, Madden NFL 16 has announced "one of [their] most adventurous" soundtracks. With a 30-song track list interspersed with world premieres from new artists like Robert DeLong and LunchMoney Lewis, the soundtrack also features big names like Big Data, Nas, The Weeknd, Yelawolf and more.

This isn't Madden's only effort to stress the music. Teaming up with Spotify, the sports entertainment brand has created a profile on which its soundtracks can be found, as well as "Madden Music Mondays," which will link listeners to "fresh songs and artists, as well as special themed playlists hand-selected by NFL teams." Songs like The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" and Hermitude's "Through The Roof" (feat. Young Tapz) -- both featured on the forthcoming soundtrack -- will keep players company both on and off the virtual field.

The game is available for pre-order (out Aug. 25) at all major retailers, and the full Madden NFL 16 playlist can be streamed here. Until then, Madden has provided us with plenty of music to ease the anticipation.
