Scarlet Moon Records is thrilled to announce the seventh album in their award-winning and Billboard-charting Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies series with Prescription for Sleep: Celeste. For the first time ever, this volume is co-produced by Celeste composer Lena Raine and features an additional performer with violinist Maiko joining 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 album will also enjoy a limited edition physical CD release including foil print, comics, and stickers illustrated by Maximo Vitaly Lorenzo.
“I became aware of Celeste due to the buzz surrounding Lena’s soundtrack, and even though I wasn’t very good at the game, I stuck through it to the end, in large part because of the music” explains Scarlet Moon Records producer Jayson Napolitano. “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. If you like the ‘Scattered and Lost’ arrangement, you have Lena’s Twitter fans to thank for it! We hope you enjoy it.”
