Persona 5's Immensely Jazzy Soundtrack Is Available Now on iTunes

Not on Apple Music or other streaming sites though.

News by Caty McCarthy, .

Shoji Meguro is one of the best composers in the biz (in this humble writer’s opinion). And now his latest composition for Persona 5 is officially available on iTunes. The new release expands beyond the sampler soundtrack found in Persona 5’s special Take Your Heart Edition. Rather than accounting only 19 tracks, the complete soundtrack bears 110 tunes from the 100-plus hour game.

Don't Worry, The PS3 Version of Persona 5 Is Totally Fine

Worry not, players of last-gen consoles.

Persona 5 Is Proof That Impeccably Stylish UI Design Matters

Sometimes navigating menus is tedious. In Persona 5, it's anything but.

Meguro’s latest composition roots its inspirations in acid jazz, a funk-driven subgenre of jazz. In the past, Meguro’s scores have always set the mood for any game it touches. For Catherine, the bar’s melodies are notedly subdued, while the puzzle-prone nightmares hosted chaotic reimaginings of classical tunes. In Persona 3 Portable, a lighter, more upbeat collection of songs soundtracked the female main character’s route to contrast the male’s. With Persona 5, while drastically more laid back than past scores, ends up feeling like the perfect sounds to back the Phantom Thieves.

You can find the Persona 5 soundtrack on iTunes for $29.99. As of now, the soundtrack is not availble on Apple Music, Spotify, or any other streaming service.

    Such a damn good soundtrack. On top of still playing the game for about 80 hours and only about 3/4 of the way through I have been listening to the soundtrack every single day. Really living that Persona life.

    @detten17 It's 110 songs long, a far cry from an album's typical 10-20 tracks.

    I am happy it exists, but I'm not buying unless it's either on Google play, or it's confirmed the itunes version are 320 kbps constant bit rate MP3s.

    I am especially never buying from Amazon again after making several purchases and then being pissed when i heard how bad the mp3s sounded with good headphones.

    Alternately, I'd take the option to buy the physical CDs and rip the music myself.

    @detten17 Not for Japanese games. Those are always expensive.

    Really interested in this but can't find it for the life of me. Is the Australian ITunes Store getting it later or even at all?

    Incredible soundtrack. I am one to complain about the state of modern game soundtracks being pretty dismal... but between this and NieR Automata, quality game soundtracks made a bit of a comeback this year!

    Loving this game, really dig this soundtrack. Of course, I bought the $55 3-disc import soundtrack the morning before the announcement. Oh well! It's all good.
