The video game discographies of Spotify and Apple Music got significantly better outside of Japan today with the addition of soundtracks from the Persona series.

These soundtracks include tunes from Persona 2, Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5, as well as music from spin-off games like Persona Q and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. There are even a couple of live albums from back when concerts were a thing people could attend safely.

AniPlaylist, the music curation service that first spotted the soundtracks, has put together a huge Spotify playlist to make specific albums and songs easier to find for non-Japanese speakers. While there’s a lot of great stuff to choose from here, I’ve included a few of my favourites below.

Of course, much like the Capcom and Final Fantasy music before them, listening to these tracks in full requires an active subscription.

It’s hard to argue against the excellence of Persona music, even if you’re not a fan of its brand of high school-based role-playing. Every soundtrack is a great mixture of thumping battle themes, melancholy piano melodies, and ethereal soundscapes, making them great background music for just about any situation. Do yourself a favour and spin some of these songs during your work day.

  • Catherine and Catherine: Full Body were also included in this release. I’m hoping this means other Atlus games will get their soundtracks available soon too, because I need to add a bunch of tracks from SMT: Nocturne, Digital Devil Saga, and SMT VI to my playlists.

  • Shame that Persona 5: Royal’s soundtrack is not available on there yet, I’d certainly love to be able to get rid of my local file versions, and finally be able to cast them onto my Google Home devices.
