Pharrell Williams has been selected to 'curate' the "the most extensive and unique soundtrack compilation in NBA 2K franchise history" for NBA 2K15.

Williams follows Jay-Z and LeBron James who crafted the soundtracks of 2K13 and 2K14 respectively, though Jay-Z was credited as an executive producer for 2K13.

"It was a cool experience. I tried to curate songs that were diverse but yet still proved to be motivational to gamers," Pharrell said regarding his role. "It was important to me that the music complemented the on-court action of NBA basketball in NBA 2K15. I hope everyone enjoys it."

"Pharrell's passion and reputation as a visionary producer and expertise from working with the NBA will be evident in the largest and most eclectic NBA 2K soundtrack ever," added 2K's VP marketing Alfie Brody. "We really listened to our fans' feedback on how we could improve their experience from a music standpoint, and we're confident Pharrell's collaboration in NBA 2K15 will impress players as much as it's impressed us."

NBA 2K15 is due to launch on PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 10.
