    Madeon have remixed Blur's "Song 2" for the new FIFA 17 trailer. It's a perfect anthem for the upcoming soccer/football video game - meaningless, pumped-up, and full of swagger. The French dance music producer has added a bass drop to the already sweltering track, adding even more excitement to one of the video game world's most-anticipated annual games.

    "Song 2" was originally written by Blur frontman Damon Albarn as a parody of the popular grunge style of the time. Ironically, the lampoon works perfectly as a comment on the today's highly popular electronic dance music. "Song 2" was also featured on FIFA Road to the World Cup 98.

    Madeon originally reworked the track back in 2011, but it has still not been released as a single. The French electronic music producer last released Adventure in May of last year. The record was well-received critically, reached number 43 on the US Billboard 200, and got all the way to number one on the US Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

    FIFA 17 will be released September 27th in North America and September 29th in the rest of the world via EA Sports. This is the 24th annual FIFA release and the first to use the new Frostbite game engine. Marcos Reus is featured on the cover the game.
