Materia Collective's Kingdom Hearts tribute album, Hearts of Light, is now available for streaming and download.
Featuring music composed by Yoko Shimomura, Utada Hikaru, and Tsuyoshi Sekito, the album boasts 15 tracks from across a diverse array of genres including classical and traditional eastern music, big band jazz, heavy metal, and fusion.
"Hearts of Light is one of our most emotional listens, tapping into the moodier somber tracks from Kingdom Hearts collection while also incorporating its most passionate ones," explains album producer and contributing arranger Ro Panuganti. "There are so many stronger feelings conveyed by the artists with the album, and the result was one of our most comforting and cathartic releases yet. Listening to all of the tracks, as diverse as they are, is a touching experience I could not be happier with."
