Electronic Arts today announced that ‘Stand Up (For It)’ from the Grammy-winning multi-platinum rock group, Dave Matthews Band, will headline the in-game music soundtrack of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06. The soundtrack is complemented by smooth electronic tracks from The Supreme Beings of Leisure, Thievery Corp and David Holmes, which are designed to enhance the musical atmosphere on the green.
“This is the first time we’ve had a song in a videogame, but it seems appropriate because we’re all fans of Tiger and EA Sports. So it feels natural that, if we were going to end up in a video game, it would be next to him. When we were recording ‘Stand Up’ in the studio, everyone had this reaction that it reminded them of sports. So I think it was the only song that would really be right for the game,” said Dave Matthews.
