Stevie Wonder's "Another Star," a song from his 1976 album, Songs In The Key Of Life, has been named the theme song of the World Cup for the BBC. The network will play the cut during all World Cup programming, beginning with a preview show airing June 11.
"It is very rare for an artist of this stature to approve the use of their music in this way, so we are thrilled and honoured," said BBC Sport senior producer Ian Finch.
"This song perfectly captures the feel-good, carnival atmosphere we will bring to our viewers during the World Cup this summer."
The World Cup airs on BBC from June 12-July 13. Live games air on BBC One, BBC One HD and the BBC Sport website, with simultaneous games on BBC Three, BBC Three HD and the Red Button.
