Materia Collective is happy to announce that the NieR: Glory to Mankind album is now available in both physical (limited edition CD) and digital formats. It is an orchestral pop arrangement album that dedicates itself to the very popular soundtrack of NieR: Automata. The NieR: Glory to Mankind album has 13 tracks of unique arrangements created by the artists, ROZEN and REVEN. These include some key tracks originally composed by Keiichi Okabe, Keigo Hoashi, and the team at MoNACA. Some of the tracks on the album feature live performances, too.
ROZEN commented about the album and what the artists behind it want people to get out of it:
“It is our wish that people listen to this album and, if they are long-time fans of the series, experience a new, more intense take on the melodies that made the game’s story so iconic. For newer fans, we hope to introduce them to the world of NieR: Automata the same way we were: through the incredible music.”
