Florence Welch's “Stand By Me” is Final Fantasy XV's Theme

Final Fantasy XV has an official theme, a cover of “Stand By Me” orchestrated and performed by Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. Fans were first exposed to the rendition during the “Reclaim Your Throne” trailer played at the start of the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event on March 30th. Square Enix also released a video on behalf of the artist commemorating the artist’s involvement in the project.

Big name artists are nothing new to Final Fantasy, though the selection of a Western singer and band is suggestive of how dependent upon western sales Final Fantasy XV’s eventual success will be. It's also something of a meta statement on Final Fantasy XV's relationship with its fans and itself in general. If you haven’t seen it already, you can watch the "Reclaim Your Throne" trailer below.
