“The Persona 5 soundtrack makes every day feel cool” - The Verge
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.
Fans will be given a rare peek behind-the-scenes - via video, photos and interviews - showcasing every detail involved in making a record. This includes:
Mastering - We’ll visit our favorite mastering studio, Infrasonic, and chronicle how music is mixed for the retro technology that is vinyl
Test Presses - We’ll show you what it’s like to create lacquers & test presses, which serve as benchmark for the vinyl’s audio quality
Vinyl Production - We’ll hang with our friends from Noiseland at their factory in France, capturing the analog magic of melting “wax” and stamping records. It’s pretty crazy to see, because some of these machines are nearly 100 years old!
Packaging - We’ll reveal just how much work goes into creating a unique packaging experience, from design to printing to assembly
.And then finally…
Artwork - We’ll reveal the “Mystery Album Art,” the result of an intimate collaboration between iam8bit, Atlus, SEGA and a to be announced, top secret artist ;-)
