• Album Art by Nicole Gustafsson
Persona 5 is a massive and epic opus of a game – the kind of 100-hour-plus JRPG journey that it is impossible to peel away from.
The soundtrack is equally epic, featuring hours of jazzy, poppy, energetic musical magic that you’ll find yourself unconsciously whistling throughout the day. From upbeat vocally-driven songs (many featuring the incomparable throaty gusto of Japanese soul singer, Lyn Inaizumi) to more contemplative, instrumental riffs – it’s an impressive ensemble of tunes.
Quite simply, Persona 5 is one of our favorite videogame soundtracks to date.
We’re so proud to be releasing the Persona 5 soundtrack that, together with ATLUS and SEGA, we decided to do something rather radical – we’re going to document and share the entire process of creating a vinyl album with Persona 5 fans, from start to finish.
Spread your wings and FLY to Jonathan Geer’s moving score for Owlboy!
Across this epic 2xLP, Geer deftly captures the vivid tale of Otus as he ventures through the clouds in search of ‘owl-hood’. Utilizing a perfect combination of orchestration and electronic elements, this timeless score feels as grand and all-consuming as your favorite feature film scores, as it brings the pixel rich world of Owlboy’s mysticism & fantasy to life.
Illustrator Nicole Gustafsson is no stranger to mystical beings, either. Her portfolio boasts an impeccable fascination with woodland creatures, making her our one and only choice to create this album art. She has intricately – and ever so beautifully – painted the “world in the clouds” where Otus and his friends bound. The vinyl itself – minted on “Cloudy Sky” colored wax – compliments this soaring vision.
Sit back and enjoy as the music floats gently across your turntable… and into your earholes.
