The content of Linked Horizon’s first album in 4 years has been announced. Shingeki no Kiseki (Attack on Miracle) will include the five songs Linked Horizon wrote for the anime Attack on Titan and six new songs, for a total of 11 songs.
It will include the full version of the opening theme of Attack on Titan Season 2, ‘Shinzou wo Sasageyo,’ as well as the opening of Season 1, ‘Guren no Yumiya‘ and a new version of a song that they performed in October 2016 at the Tokyo Kokusai Forum at Shingeki Matsuri with narration from the AoT character Armin Arlert (VA: Marina Inoue).
The album will also include full-length versions of the songs ‘Guren no Zahyou‘ and ‘Jiyuu no Daisho,’ which were used for the live action movies of Attack on Titan. The limited edition of the album will include a full version of ‘Seishun wa Hanabi no you ni,’ used as the opening for the Attack on Titan spin-off Attack! Titan middle school. The booklet will include drawings by Saki Nakagawa who originally drew the spin-off manga.
On the Blu-ray version of the release, they will include a movie with animated visuals for ‘Jiyuu no Daisho’ (Movie size). ‘Jiyuu no Tsubasa’ was used for the second of the live action movies, Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom. It is a magnificent song and this version also incorporates pictures, sounds, nuances of the lyrics and phrases. There is also going to be a remix of the song included in this version.
As the title suggests, this album was made with the fans of Attack on Titan in mind. This might be the first time an album of a single artist includes all the songs they did for an anime series without it being a soundtrack.
We wonder what part of Attack on Titan the new songs will represent and what the voices the 4 supporting artists (Manami, Eiko Matsumoto, Misaki Fukunaga and Tsukika) of this album will sound like. We have to wait until the release of the album to see where Levi’s voice (VA: Hiroshi Kamiya) was used. Please enjoy the world of Attack on Titan through this album from Linked Horizon!
