Soccer's governing body says aspiring musicians can submit videos of original song proposals beginning in December. The contestants will be narrowed to 20 finalists in January and experts and fans will vote to decide the top five. Martin and team of judges will pick the winner in February.

Martin says in a statement Friday he is ''extremely happy and humbled'' to ''launch this special contest.''

FIFA says the official World Cup song will be announced next year before the start of the tournament in June.
