'F1 23' Soundtrack Song List Revealed

Headlined with the return of the epic story mode Braking Point, F1 23 is home to every team, driver and circuit for the 2023 season, including the highly anticipated Las Vegas Grand Prix and Lusail International Circuit, Qatar.

Building on the exciting new partnership with Max Verstappen, who now boasts EA Sports branding on the chin of his helmet, the back-to-back World Champion is confirmed as the cover star for the digital-exclusive F1 23 Champions Edition.

Braking Point returns for a bold new chapter following the careers of young upstart Aiden Jackson, and protagonist, Devon Butler, now teammates for Konnersport Racing Team, a fledgling organization hoping to succeed against the current real-world F1 teams and drivers. Adding a host of new characters, fresh rivalries, and racing challenges, both aim to take their careers to the next level, but there will be twists, turns, and pitfalls along the way.

F1 23’s handling has been upgraded from last season, allowing for more predictable behavior, and new vehicle physics gives the cars better traction when braking, accelerating, and cornering. By incorporating actual F1 team feedback, a greater balance between aerodynamics and tyre grip results in a more realistic feel. Engine torque and inertia improvements also mean throttle control is more authentic and offers a greater level of connection to the car. Alongside these improvements, Precision Drive controller technology will give pad players better control and confidence in those crucial race moments.

Today Electronic Arts released their custom soundtrack for EA Sports F1 23, an official game of the FIA Formula One World Championship.

Bringing together 35 global artists from 16 countries and led by the exclusive single ‘See The Light’ from supergroup Swedish House Mafia ft Fridayy, the soundtrack combines sleek style with maximum torque to get drivers’ hearts pumping as they battle for a place on the podium. Electronic superstars such as Skrillex ft. Noisa, josh pan & Dylan Bradley, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto x Tate McRae, Wet Leg and Romy & Fred Again.., alongside breakthrough artists like 100 gecs, Whyte Fang, Rêve and 2hollis, bring the beats to complement the world’s premier class of motorsport.

“F1® 23 speaks to more than just a remarkable racing experience,” said Steve Schnur, President of Music at Electronic Arts. “The music of the game is engineered to reflect and enhance the unique global style and energy that Formula 1 audiences crave. By launching with an exciting new single by Swedish House Mafia and the enthusiastic support of the entire album by Spotify, it’s a soundtrack fueled by the coming year’s best music, led by the genre’s top new and breakthrough artists, and defined by EA’s ongoing commitment to cultural leadership.”

“"We are so pleased to lead the F1 23 soundtrack with ‘See The Light’, the first song from our next chapter. The history and heritage of Formula 1 racing has always been a passion of ours, so partnering our music with this culture couldn't feel better!,” commented Swedish House Mafia when they released their new single in an exclusive live performance celebration with Spotify in London on May 27th.
