Bands and artists including Flo Rida, My Chemical Romance, Hot Chip, School Of Seven Bells and 3OH!3 will re-record songs especially for the new console-based version of videogame ‘The Sims 3’. The new versions of their songs will see them singing in the made up ‘Simlish’ language, used by the game’s characters.

EA’s Steve Schnur explained: “‘The Sims’ may be one of the biggest and best-known brands in popular culture today and for a major artist to be asked to re-record their music in ‘Simlish’ has become one of the most unique and exclusive opportunities in the world of entertainment”.
