If there’s one thing besides the core sports gameplay that makes an EA Sports game it’s the killer soundtrack. Featuring everything from break out hits to soon-to-be number 1’s, you can always find a song worth jamming out to in Madden, NHL, or NCAA.

In keeping with that theme we have just received word from EA Sports detailing FIFA 12’s soundtrack. Featuring nearly 40 tracks from 39 different artists, from 15 different countries, this FIFA 12 soundtrack accurately reflects the global appeal of the sport.

While most players will be dead-set on taking the game’s improved physics engine and pro player intelligence for a spin, it’ll be hard to miss the tracks that are fueling their championship run.

Among the artists featured on the soundtrack are Foster the People, TV on the Radio, and The Strokes, just to name a few of the artists coming out of the US. But that’s just a small taste of what is included, here’s your full track list:

Launching at the end of this month, with global superstar Wayne Rooney on the cover, FIFA 12 promises to take the franchise to a new level. Our hands-on time with the game showed a much improved “under the hood” experience, but one that is still fundamentally familiar and a whole lot of fun.

But, if you’re looking to get in on the slide-tackling action a couple days before everyone else, you can subscribe to EA Sports’ Season Ticket service which gives you full access to the game for a 3-day trial period. Which means you could be taking Manchester City through the ranks of the Premier League as early as the 24th of this month.

There’s currently no word on whether or not the FIFA 12 soundtrack will be available for standalone purchase, which means gamers will have to go with the next best option: play a whole lot of FIFA 12.

What do you think of the track selection for the FIFA 12 soundtrack? How important is a solid soundtrack to an EA Sports game these days?

FIFA 12 releases September 27, 2011 for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PS2, and Wii.
