The Singapore Southeast Asian Games Organising Committee (Singsoc) launched the official games music album, Song of the Games, on Tuesday afternoon at Shaw Theatre, Lido.

The album contains tracks from local acts Dick Lee, Daphne Khoo, The Sam Willows, and Tabitha Nauser, and is produced by Sydney Tan, the Singsoc executive committee's music director.

Song of the Games features 14 tunes, including three official theme songs of the biennial meet, which will be held on home soil from June 5-16.

The songs can be previewed free-of-charge on the official SEA Games songs website (www.songsofthegames.com), Spotify, AMPED, and Deezer. It is also available for purchase on iTunes. A portion of the proceeds from iTunes sales will go towards the SportCares Foundation, the philantrophic arm of national sports agency SportSG.

Three videos featuring Singapore athletes will also be released on the Games Facebook page in conjunction with the album launch.

Said Singsoc exco chairman Lim Teck Yin: "Music can inspire people to feel the pulse and excitement of the SEA Games. We want the album to enhance the experience of the entire event."
