Joe Hisaishi - Princess Mononoke

 (Remastered Limited Edition Japanese Import Soundtrack Album with OBI Strip)


Remastered limited edition Japanese import soundtrack album with OBI strip!

For the first time, the soundtrack for the 1997 animated classic Princess Mononoke will be available on vinyl. And not just in one form, either — Studio Ghibli and Norman Records are releasing three different editions of the soundtrack on July 24, 2020.

As The Vinyl Factory notes, these include the original score by composer Joe Hisaishi as it appeared on film; a 1998 symphonic suite that Hisaishi arranged for performance by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra; and the promotional "Image" album, common in Japan, in which actors perform songs as their characters to give a sense of their personalities.

All three musical editions have been remastered, and same goes for the theme song sung by Yoshikazu Mera.

Studio Ghibli has slowly been releasing vinyl editions of music from its classic movies. In 2018, they pressed LPs of My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, and Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind for the first time. All three were also composed by Joe Hisaishi.
