Balkan Beat Box song included in FIFA 2017
Israel finally makes a mark on the world soccer stage...in music. The song 'I Trusted You,' by Balkan Beat Box, which is on their new album, has been included in FIFA 2017's soundtrack, marking the second time the band has been included on the popular soccer video game.
This is the second time the band has contributed a song to the game's soundtrack after "Ramallah Tel-Aviv," was included in the 2010 version. The inclusion of the band's song reaches hundreds of millions of players all around the world.
Ori Kaplan, a member of Balkan Beat Box, sai,d "We are very excited to be included in the FIFA soundtrack this year. The editors there know our music for a few years now and there has been dialogue over the past few months about making the song part of the game. We see this as another way to bring the sound of our album to a broader audience in the world. We're told that gamers listen to the soundtrack on loop."
Balkan Beat Box was founded approximately 13 years ago by Kaplan, Tamir Muskat and Tomer Yosef. The song "I Trusted You" will be included in the new album, which is expected to be released in November.
