We're getting new Florence + the Machine music today thanks to the new Final Fantasy game.

The British band released three new songs recorded for the video game's new Final Fantasy XV iteration. Produced by Emile Haynie (who's worked with everyone from Lana Del Rey to Kanye West), there are two original tracks—"Too Much Is Never Enough" and "I Will Be"—along with a cover of the Ben E. King classic "Stand by Me." Stream them via Spotify below:

"I've always seen Final Fantasy as a beautiful and creative game so I don't think I could have worked with another video game," the band's frontwoman Florence Welch said. "It wouldn't have made sense. In some ways the landscape of Final Fantasy and my own internal landscape seemed to fit quite well. It's mythical and beautiful and epic."

Sounds like a match made in heaven. While F+TM will continue on the festival circuit for rest of the 2016, get your #FBF on with a clip of Welch at the band's first-ever Bonnaroo appearance in 2011:
