During today’s set of announcements by Streaming Arrow Records on the Digital Emelas Discord server, the company representative revealed that the Ys compilation album, “Fields of Ys,” will be receiving a physical vinyl soundtrack release. Their Twitter account also shared this news.
This package coalesces several iconic Ys overworld tracks into one purchase with recent classics like “Sunshine Coastline” and long-beloved ones like “The Boy’s Got Wings.” Alongside being fitted into a stylish pocket jacket, a 12×12″ insert of Adol and Dogi leaving the land of Esteria is also included.
The soundtrack package is available for open pre-order on their digital store with no purchase limit until August 24, 2021. It is expected to ship in May 2022.
The following tracks are included on Side A of the release:
- “First Step Towards Wars”
- “Palace of Solomon”
- “The Boy Who had Wings”
- “The Great Forest of Celceta”
- “Field of Gale”
The following tracks are included on Side B of the release:
- “Quatera Woods”
- “Mother Earth Altago”
- “Sunshine Coastline”
- “Glessing Way!”
For those not familiar with Streaming Arrow Records and their efforts regarding Nihon Falcom, they have released official vinyl of the Ys I and Ys II soundtracks to overwhelmingly positive reception. With this recent news, they assuredly have the potential to swiftly becoming known for Falcom soundtracks in the west.
Additionally, for further clarification, the reasoning behind this company’s collaboration with Digital Emelas is because not only is the latter a source of news and community for the Ys series, but they have also teamed up with numerous official publishers in the past like NIS America, as well as announcing related merchandise.
So, in a sense, while Digital Emelas is technically not official in the strictest of terms, their history with official partners to promote the franchise’s prominence and relevance in the west makes them a sensible partner of this collaborative venture.
