Fatboy Slim Presents Bem Brasil was released earlier this month as the “unofficial soundtrack” to this year’s World Cup in Brazil, which kicked off today. The double-CD collection boasts a wide range of tracks from the likes of Claude VonStroke, Carl Cox, Gilberto Gil and Fatboy Slim himself, who contributes the song, “Everybody Loves a Carnival.”
The high-energy party track now has an official music video, set on the streets of Brazil with images of dancers as well as images of Fatboy Slim on the decks at a party in the country that’s hosting this year’s World Cup.
“I think a South American team, either Argentina or Brazil,” Fatboy Slim predicted to FIFA recently when asked who he thinks will win this year’s World Cup.
“Brazil have the passion, the know-how and the home advantage.”
