Racing games can be fun on its own, but sometimes music helps amplify the feelings of anxiety and excitement as you speed down an open highway or dangerously tight streets. The recently announced soundtrack for the upcoming title developed by Ghost Games and published by Electronic Arts, Need for Speed Payback, aims to accomplish this with unique soundtracks for specific portions of the franchise’s next iteration.

As you build your car in the garage, a selection of electronic and ambient tracks by Spoon, Duckwrth, Bonobo, Rae Sremmurd, and SOHN. When you’re finished customizing your vehicle, free-roaming through the game’s open-world will play songs by The Amazons, X Ambassadors, Local Natives, and an unreleased track by Skepta & Goldie.

If you have found a race to partake in, tracks by Queens of the Stone Age, Nothing but Thieves, and Warbly Jets will kick on. If it’s a drift event, songs by Run the Jewels feat. Trina, Stormzy, Lethal Bizzle feat.Kepta, A$AP Ferg feat. Meek Mill, Action Bronson, and Tom Morello feat. Leikeli47 will blast through the stereo.
