Lo-fi is one of my favorite music stylings to listen to throughout the workday, so when Square Enix added some chill Final Fantasy lo-fi sounds to Spotify, my heart got really happy really quickly. The company recently just added a ton of new tunes to the music streaming service, including a “Chill Out” tracklist specifically designed to help relax and unwind.
“Introducing new chill-out arrangements of music from Square Enix’s popular game titles,” says Square Enix about the Spotify “Chill Out” album. “This album features a selection of classic tracks, mainly taken from Squaresoft’s 1980s releases, such as Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy Legend, Final Fantasy Legend II, Final Fantasy Legend III, and Final Fantasy Adventure.”
The lo-fiesque tunes takes music from Squaresoft’s ’80s releases and arranges them in the best way possible. Games like Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy Legend, Final Fantasy Legend II, Final Fantasy Legend III, and Final Fantasy Adventure.
The arrangements for this album are a product of talent from all over the world, including DJ Lord Echo from New Zealand, Oval’s Shingo Suzuki and Shingo Sekiguchi from Origami Production, Kylie Minogue’s director (and pianist) Chris Gulino, and more.
“Bundled with mellow music perfect for a relaxing time, this album will unquestionably bring a moment of peace to all game enthusiasts and relaxing music lovers alike.,” Square adds.
