“Digimon Movie Song Collection” Scheduled For August 01

Back in May, rumors of a brand new Digimon compilation album surfaced, presumably as part of a continuing celebration of the franchise’s 15th anniversary in its homeland. As of last week, major Japanese retailers have revealed track listings and preliminary cover artwork for a new two-disc set, which will be released in two different collectable versions.

NECA-30313 (1) NECA-30315 (1)

The album, “Digimon Movie Song Collection,” will hit stores on (when else?) August 01. Digimon music lovers will have their choice between either the “Omegamon Version” or the “Digimon Movie Version,” which each feature exclusive cover artwork. The contents of the discs themselves are exactly the same; you may base 100% of your purchasing decision on which artwork you prefer. As the name implies, this “Movie Song Collection” will compile vocal songs from the franchise’s theatrical films and featurettes (two for Digimon Adventure, two for Digimon Adventure 02, two for Digimon Tamers, and one each for Digimon Frontier and Digimon Savers). The sixth Digimon TV series, Digimon Xros Wars, did not receive a theatrical film and is thus the only Digimon show not represented on this album.

The track listing is as follows.

Disc 01
01.) “Butter-Fly (Theatre Size #1)” – Digimon Adventure Movie 01 Ending Theme
02.) “Butter-Fly” – Digimon Adventure Movie 02 Opening Theme
03.) “Brave Heart” – Digimon Adventure Movie 02, Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 01, & Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 02 Insert Song
04.) “Requiem” – Digimon Adventure Movie 02 & Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 02 Insert Song
05.) “Opus No. 2 「Spring」 In A Major ~Our War Game!~” – Digimon Adventure Movie 02 Ending Theme
06.) “Target ~Red Shock~” – Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 01 Opening Theme & Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 02 Insert Song
07.) “Break Up!” – Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 01 Insert Song
08.) “FOREVER FRIENDS (ACOUSTIC VERSION)” – Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 01 Insert Song
09.) “Stand • By • Me ~One Summer’s Adventure~ (Summer Memory Version)” – Digimon Adventure 02 Movie 01 Ending Theme

09.) “With The Will” – Digimon Frontier Movie Insert Song
10.) “FIRE!!” – Digimon Frontier Movie Ending Theme
11.) “Lightly” – Digimon Savers Movie Ending Theme

In addition to putting some long lost songs back in-print, this release also features some exclusive tunes. Tracks 09 & 11 on disc one and tracks 04 & 08 on disc two are newly-recorded cover versions performed by series veteran Ai Maeda (otherwise known as “AiM”). This is the second DiGiMONMUSiC release in a row for which Ai Maeda has contributed new material (the first being 2013’s “Ending Best Aimer” album).

We’ve added an entry for this release on our “Multi-Series Albums” page. We’ll be sure to post any updates as they become available.
