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.
