2K has officially unveiled the soundtrack for their upcoming iteration of the NBA 2K franchise, NBA 2K21.
The brand new in-game soundtrack will feature two new unreleased tracks from NBA 2K21 cover athlete Damian “Dame D.O.L.L.A.” Lillard, as well as songs from today’s top artists such as Stormzy, Roddy Ricch and The Strokes.
“To be on the cover alone is a big deal to me, but to be on the cover and also have my music be a part of the game is a huge accomplishment as well,” said Damian Lillard. “Personally, I’ve been introduced to new artists, songs and genres that I might hear on the radio, but I heard it first on NBA 2K.”
NBA 2K21 will launch with 52 songs on September 4, including two Dame D.O.L.L.A. tracks exclusively debuting in the game; fans can experience the soundtrack beginning today on Spotify. The next-gen version of NBA 2K21 will add additional songs and will feature 202 tracks at launch. After launch, the next-gen soundtrack will then be updated with new songs spanning across hip-hop, R&B, electronic, pop and rock.
“Music has always been an integral part of NBA 2K, and each year we strive to expand our approach to the players’ in-game experience,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global Marketing for NBA 2K. “This year we’re able to bring the soundtrack to completely new heights with a highly-curated track list powered by next-gen technology and a cover athlete in Damian Lillard who’s adding unreleased tracks; together embodying the NBA 2K21 theme – Everything is Game.”
NBA 2K21 drops Sept. 4th. Pre-order now at Amazon.com.
