Every four years, in anticipation of the FIFA World Cup, an official album is released to go along with rivalries formed against countries most people can’t find on a world map.
The first three songs on the Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album tracklist are:
2. Santana & Wyclef feat. Avicii & Alexandre Pires – Dar Um Jeito (We Will Find A Way) (The Official World Cup Anthem) what’s the difference between a song and anthem?
3. Arlindo Cruz – Tatu Bom De Bola (The Official World Cup Mascot Song)
As an artist, it’s important to create a song that captures the spirit of your subject, possibly develop a narrative surrounding your subject in order to truly bring the music to life.
…this is the artistic process I like to imagine when Arlindo Cruz was tasked with writing a song for an armadillo named Fuleco.
