Scarlet Moon Records Announces Lullaby Video Game Album For Gamers
A new video game music album is coming soon from Scarlet Moon Records, though it isn’t the type of album that gamers will put on blast while driving their cars. Titled “Prescription for Sleep: Fight For Your Dreams,” the album features fully licensed video game music presented in lullaby form. As such, the lullaby video game album is moreso designed to help gamers relax, rather than hype them up. The upcoming lullaby album will feature music from artists such as Metal Gear Solid and Bayonetta composer Norihiko Hibino on saxophone, with Etrian Odyssey and Persona Q performer Ayaki on piano. The lullaby video game album will also feature music from popular games such as Final Fantasy XV, Undertale, Dark Souls, and Super Metroid.
Jayon Napolitano – the producer for “Fight For Your Dreams” – spoke about “Veiled in Black,” a music track from Final Fantasy XV. “The premise of Final Fantasy XV is that a prince and his closest companions head out on a road trip to the wedding of the prince, but as they leave the crown city the evil empire invades and kills many of those closest to the prince,” Napolitano said. “He has to find strength with his friends by his side and reclaim this throne.”
This battle theme plays when encountering the infantry soldiers from the evil empire who are in pursuit of the prince. It therefore has this sense of anger, frustration, and dread. There’s still a lovely melody in here, and like most of Yoko Shimomura’s work, there’s some lovely piano work for AYAKI to work with. The themes can center around companionship, as the game is very much focused on the relationship between Prince Noctics and his friends.”
The full track list for “Prescription for Sleep: Fight For Your Dreams” can be seen below. The lullaby video game music album is currently available for pre-order on Scarlet Moon Record’s website, with a release date of October 10, 2017. The price of the album is $10.
