Evangelion soundtrack to be released on collectible vinyl records
Fans of the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise will soon be able to get their hands on the collectible vinyl records with the soundtrack, or they can also get them in CD or digital format, if they prefer.
This new collection, titled “EVANGELION FINALLY”, is being launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original series premiere in Japan. Released by Los Angeles-based record label Milan Records, the installment will include vocal tracks performed by Yoko Takahashi, Megumi Hayashibara and others.
Finally, the CD and the digital releases will be available from next December 4. Reservations for the album will open at midnight on December 4 (North American Eastern Time) through the official Milan Records site (link).
The original series premiered in Japan in October 1995, with 26 episodes written and directed by Hideaki Anno at Gainax Studios in collaboration with Tatsunoko Production. On the other hand, the film Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon a Time, the last of the tetralogy of the new Evangelion project, was scheduled to be released on June 27 in Japan. However, due to the health situation the country is going through caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made to delay it until January 23, 2021.
Additionally, Netflix acquired the distribution license for the original series and the franchise's films, with the exception of the Rebuild project. The first three films of this latest project were released in 2007, 2009 and 2012 in Japan.
