Two New Music Albums Celebrate Pokemon's 25th Anniversary
As part of Pokemon’s ongoing 25th anniversary celebration, The Pokemon Company revealed two new music albums that are inspired by the Pokemon video games.
Pokemon 25: The Red EP is available to stream now on services like Spotify and Apple Music, among others. It features three songs from recording artists Vince Staples, Cyn, and Mabel.
Later in August, Pokemon 25: The Blue EP will be released, which will feature remixes of the three songs from The Red EP created by recording artist ZHU.
The three songs featured on Pokemon 25: The Red EP will also be included on the P25 Music album that will be released by Capitol Records this fall. The ZHU remixes from The Blue EP will be included with the digital version of the P25 Music album.
In a press release, Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing at The Pokemon Company International, commented on these albums:
"The Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games introduced the world to Pokémon 25 years ago and we wanted to recognize that important part of the franchise in our 25th anniversary celebrations within the P25 Music campaign. Pokémon fans will appreciate the nod to the first Pokémon video games with these EPs, while music fans will enjoy new songs and remixes from exciting artists on these dual collections."
