Pharrell Williams says it was a "cool experience" putting together music to "motivate" gamers for 'NBA 2K15'

Pharrell Williams says compiling a video game soundtrack was a "cool experience".

The 'Happy' hitmaker has selected a series of tracks for 'NBA 2K15' and hopes his choice of tunes proves to be "motivational" for players of the forthcoming sports title.

He said: "It was a cool experience. I tried to curate songs that were diverse but yet still proved to be motivational to gamers.

"It was important to me that the music complemented the on-court action of NBA basketball in NBA 2K15. I hope everyone enjoys it."

Though Pharrell's selections haven't yet been unveiled, game creators 2K have promised an "eclectic" mix that players will enjoy.

The company's vice president of marketing Alfie Brody said: "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.

"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' will be released in October for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
