Co-produced by Celeste composer Lena Raine.
Scarlet Moon Records has announced the seventh instalment in its Prescription for Sleep line of arrangement albums.
Prescription for Sleep: Celeste is the continuation of the music label’s game music lullaby series. This time around, the album is co-produced by Lena Raine – the composer of indie platform game Celeste.
Once again, jazz duo GENTLE LOVE provides jazzy, lullaby-style performances – the hallmark of the Prescription for Sleep series. GENTLE LOVE comprises Metal Gear Solid and Bayonetta series composer and saxophonist Norihiko Hibino, and Etrian Odyssey and Persona Q pianist AYAKI.
Prescription for Sleep: Celeste also features jazz violinist Maiko.
The digital release of the album can be pre-ordered at Bandcamp, with three tracks available now to stream. The full album is set for release on 2nd November.
Aside form the digital release, there is also a limited CD release that comes in a six-panel digipak with foil print, 20-page booklet with liner notes, comics by illustrator Maximo Vitaly Lorenzo, and a sticker sheet.
This CD release is limited to 1,000 copies with shipping expected in early December.
Label producer Jayson Napolitano spoke about how he found Celeste’s soundtrack captivating to the extent that it was largely the reason he stuck with the game until the end.
“I knew the game’s themes of self-discovery and self-acceptance would align perfectly with what Hibino-san is trying to accomplish with his music, and we had a blast creating this volume and polling fans to include their pick,” said Napolitano. “If you like the ‘Scattered and Lost’ arrangement, you have Lena’s Twitter fans to thank for it! We hope you enjoy it.”
Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies is the flagship series from Scarlet Moon Records. Previous releases include two compilation volumes featuring arrangements of music from games such as Final Fantasy VII, Chronos Cross, NieR, Super Mario 64, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Shovel Knight, and more.
Two more volumes were dedicated to Secret of Mana, and Undertale, respectively, and a charity EP was released in honour of the late Satoru Iwata.
