Award-winning and Billboard-charting series feat. “Snake Eater” composer Norihiko Hibino’s jazzy videogame lullabies gets remaster of first album
Scarlet Moon Records is pleased to celebrate four years of Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies with a special re-issue of the original album that started it all. The series has enjoyed six album releases featuring GENTLE LOVE, a duo comprised of Metal Gear Solid/Bayonetta series composer Norihiko Hibino on sax and Etrian Odyssey/PersonaQ pianist AYAKI performing game music favorites in a jazzy lullaby style to sleep and relax to. The remaster version aligns the sound more closely to the rest of the series and adds two additional bonus tracks, including “Fisherman’s Horizon” from Final Fantasy VIII and an original composition by GENTLE LOVE titled “He Chose You.” Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies, Vol. I Remastered Version is fully licensed and available for pre-order today.
“Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies has become a musical phenonemon,” comments Producer Jayson Napolitano. “We found that listeners have been creating their own playlists with all six albums in the series and that the original volume could benefit from some remastering as such. We also wanted to treat fans to both a new arrangement and an original track–which we’ve been told are the highlights of many of our albums–to celebrate four years of the series. We’re thankful for all the support and look forward to announcing the next album in the series soon.”
Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies has enjoyed six album releases including two compilation volumes, two more dedicated to Secret of Mana and UNDERTALE, respectively, a compilation of battle themes turned into lullabies, and a charity EP in honor of late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
